It's not a surprise that everyone goes through up's and down's in their lives - moments that you feel like you can never get through, moments that you wish you could hold onto forever. For me, the greatest escape and the best way for me to heal from something painful is traveling. A new adventure is not only a distraction, but it's a learning experience with endless opportunities to learn about yourself. Hours in the car force you to live with yourself, beautiful moments in a foreign place force you to appreciate life when you feel like you can't.
An adventure doesn't have to be an expensive vacation with a new wardrobe and pricey meals and hotel rooms. It can be a one nighter or even a day trip to somewhere you've never been. If you feel like you need to get away, it's not as difficult as it seems. Just do it! Seriously, though.
This particular trip did exactly what I had explained and I was accompanied by a friend that gave me not only great advice, but a great distraction that taught me that I'll be absolutely OK without what I had lost. What's your remedy to harsh realities?
