Well, I don’t want to make you all too jealous (especially those of you in frozen climes) – but I’ve fled the British Isles for the Med.
As I type to you now, I am looking at the turquoise waters of Playa de Albir, feeling the sun on my face and simply remembering how good it is to feel ALIVE.
Sometimes we all just need to break out of our routine. Winter can be a trying time.
Being away with no Internet connection in the villa – is allowing me time to decompress and disconnect. It’s very rare that I take the time to do this, so I am ever-so-grateful for the opportunity.
After just a few days – I feel better and lighter than I’ve done in the past year, I think.
Distance can help you
Though you can’t simply escape a broken heart – no matter what you do – you can take time to step back, process the feelings, and eventually let go and move on.
Getting away can free up you mental space
Creativity is flowing and working on many SYBD projects – the iPhone App, the blog, and a new book that is bursting right out of me. I am doing it at a slow – but steady – pace and it all feels great.
So you’ll have to forgive the lack of blog updates this week. I picked a wonderful time to flee the country (Valentine’s weekend) – but honestly, there is no escaping those happy couples…
On the flight over, I was sat next to a pair from Cumbernauld who were flying out to celebrate their 20th anniversary. Lucky them…
As I walk down the beach or promenade, I am forever offering to take pictures of all those happy couples. (Just because I am not one of them – doesn’t mean I can’t lend an eye and a finger…)
So one of my tips to surviving a break up has always been to take a break – be it a day, a weekend, a week or more.
A change is good for the soul at the best of times – but if you can manage that break to the sunshine, so much the better…
Normal blogs will resume next week…so until then, take a page from my book and have yourself a wee break…even if you can only manage an afternoon somewhere. It will do you the world of good.
