I am grateful for…
- Having somewhere to go
- Having a way to get there
- Having down time
1) I have a need to flee.
It is very real and can be deeply upsetting.
When I’m healthy it translates into wanderlust. When I’m unhealthy it translates into running away.
When I feel trapped, when it feels like there is nowhere to go and nothing to do: public places, libraries, events, parks (because this is the land of perpetual winter), then there are very few places that I feel I can go.
When I have nowhere to go: friends, family, etc. I almost always switch to running away.
Today, I woke up upset, which seems so unfair.
Fortunately, I had to head into work, spend time with people I like, and then get paid.
It was a good day.
