This summer I needed a break from the city, the internet and my iPhone! My daughter and I took off, with some of my family to Sweden. In the middle of no where, a little house just sat there waiting.
It was so peaceful and the air so fresh, that I instantly felt at ease.
The past few years going through time with serveral anxiety attacks a day, becoming a mom and struggling with feeling sane enough for it..., and opening up to my sensitivity more, living in the city has become a bit of a stress factor. Living in constant noise doesn't have great effect on my system. So I knew this would be just what I needed.
Even the shower was amazing, standing butt naked with a full front view of the woods. And no peeping Toms.
The toilet being very good for the environment, was not so much a place for meditation...
This trip reminded me of the importance of re-charging, creating space in my life, and that although full of life, the city and being online ALL THE TIME, does have a negative effect on me and my stress level. And even better, to my big surprise of course, the city and my partner DID survive without me for a while...
The blog post is kicking off the blog, again. so this fall will be time for writing and hopefully interacting with you all.
