We all have times when life is just too much and we need a place to go where we feel safe and secure. For some people it's as simple as going to their favorite 'place' in their mind while for others they need to physically head for a place that is their haven. Where did, or do you go when you wanted to feel Safe?
I often have times when life is just too noisy and totally overwhelms me so I have a couple of 'safe places'. I can't just go there in my own mind, I'm one who needs to actually be there. For a short one I go to our bedroom. I used to do this when I was a kid too but then I would sometimes go into the attic and sit on the ceiling boards above the kitchen. The door was next to my room and it was a wonderful place to find some quiet. The best was when it was raining on the roof and the sound was so comforting.
But if I'm about
to go over the edge then my place is at the beach. When kids and grandkids are wearing me, the phone won't stop ringing and someone is always coming or going... I need a break. Hubby seems to always be on the same wave length and we start throwing some clothes in the trailer, some food and we hit the road. We do take our cell phones but gee...somehow we just forget to turn them on most of the time...

If you ask what is the single most important key to longevity, I would have to say it is avoiding worry, stress and tension. And if you didn't ask me, I'd still have to say it.
