    My Vacation Home

    I remember the day I first visited my happy place. I was probably around 16 years old and I was laying on my bed in my room feeling depressed about something. I closed my eyes and suddenly I'm sitting on a large southern-style porch. It's white with fans in the ceiling. ...

    Cool Story Bro..

    Most people.. say something in you is broken. These people, are morons.  They forget you are stained glass. And.. That you look this good broken..  on purpose. When I break,  most people don't think to hang me in a Church.

    It's a smaller beach town.

    Everyone is happy and kind. There is music everywhere. Warm, humid air every night. Waves crashing onto the sand.

    I have a happy place in my head. If I need to focus on something during meditation, this is the place I focus on. Sometimes I purposely mediate on this place. I have not seen it in real life. I found it (or made it, depending on how you look at it) during an introductory...

    It's a Little Cabin In the Woods............

    I can go there whenever the world gets a bit too cruel for me to deal with. I go there, sit on my deck & watch the deer graze. I might even go for a walk with my friend the wolf. I've known him since he was a pup. He is my best friend. We can sit & I tell him all my...

    My Happy Place

    I came up with my happy place while I was in the emergency room at the hospital. Back when I was so depressed I attempted suicide and almost succeeded but my mom hauled me in to the hospital before I could die. At that point I was at the bottom of a...

    In my head, A beautiful quiet world I go to.

    No one is allowed there except me and my imaginative husband and daughter. A place just for us. It's kinda like a fantasy world. I have everything there, that I don't have here. An awesome job, a wonderful husband, an adorable baby girl, and no other family members! It's my...

    A Weird World...

    It started off as a dream, but became my "happy place". It's not very conventional... then again, it's so like me to have a morbid and weird world in my head! XD My world is always set in the night, a dark city filled with vampires, demons, and other miscellaneous...

    It's On A Distant Planet...

       My happy place is on a small planet that nobody else knows about. There are no people there but myself, and my dog. The weather is always warm. The grass is green, and the leaves are autumn colors. The sky is a bright blue with shades of pink, and the wind is a soft...

    I've never really thought about it deeply

    until now. Whenever I'm overwhelmed, I supposed my happy place would be a large room or a house that stored everything that ever made me happy as a child. One room would have my old wooden varnished toy box with the dowels for the backing that you could stretch out on like a...

    My Mind Is Fine
