    I've always had this place in my mind; it's

    this field with forest behind it and a wooden cabin right in the center of the field and I'd be away from everything and everyone. It'd be so peaceful...

    The picture attached (Photoshopped by me btw)

    to this post is my idea of a truly happy place, where there are no worries and I'm left to think and create as I please. A soft quilt to lay in the grass, to gaze at the clouds or stars above, a gentle breeze dashing through the field and the lone tree...paradise.

    Today more than ever I just want to run away go

    to a cabin in the woods deep into the woods and stay there. I don't want to think about the interview I messed up, how hurt I am by the selfish actions of others, the stress of my wedding and everything else that's going on. I am drowning in my life junk. I need to find a...

    I got so desperate one time

    that I remember begging my best friend relentlessly and I just kept saying "please get me out of here please get me out please help me". Then s**t happened and I learned to shut my mouth, push people away, and stop making myself vulnerable like that. Now I just can't wait to...

    I really wish I had a place to go

    when I need to get away from life. Sleep is my only option. I can't even go to my room without getting yelled at. In my mind, whenever I'm upset, I always think "I wanna go home.." But then I think "no I don't, what does home have to offer me?" And a lot of times when I think...

    I imagine a place that I could be absolutely

    myself and be happy with me. I imagine a place that I can wear soft pajamas and slippers all day. I imagine a place where I can laugh and scream and let everything out. I imagine a place where I'm not so alone. I imagine a place where I am happy :)

    I wish I could just disappear.

    Just let the one person I trust most know where I am and leave. Just get away from everyone and everything.

    Just a place anywhere outside the hocus-pocus

    where I can bask myself in with utmost serenity and bliss and reflect on all the good memories that I lost with due time.

    I wish I could just escape right now.

    Even if just for a few days. I could use some rest and relaxation. Time away from all the stress. A place with preferably with some white sand, some small waves coming in and lots of Sun. I'd just lay in my beach chair breathing the fresh air of the misty breeze coming in...

    Cabin On The Lake

    I have often thought about where I want to live. As my name suggests, I don't really have a place I consider to be "home." I had an apartment while I was at school. I left school and am currently looking for an apartment and a job, while staying with my parents. I haven't...

    Getting Out Of Ones Comfort Zone Heals The Soul

    I love to travel. When I'm away from familiar surroundings I feel a sense of freedom. I'm able to hear myself think and de-stress. That's good therapy for me. It would also be great to have close friends to share it with.

    Okay, so I'm in a really emotionally messy

    place right now. I have been for a few days. EP needs to have a "messy" mood option. Honestly, half the time the list doesn't include an option for how I'm feeling at a given time, or the ones that do apply are so ridiculously incomplete that I'd almost rather choose "Hunky-dory...

    I see love this way, real love is devoted.

    But being in love, will die if you let yourself keep slowly dying. You have to stay alive and positive and real. Making compromises that slowly kill your soul will also kill love. Struggles are a different thing. I'm not saying put on a happy face when you're hurt or feeling...

    I don't have a place to get away from everything

    but I do have a "happy place" I tend to imagine going to before going to sleep. In my happy place it's always snowing and winter and there's a big log cabin with an old beat up huge leather chair with blankets I imagine walking round the snowy woods and into my warm cabin...

    I wish I had a small cabin,

    hidden away in a wooded area I could escape to when I can't take the problems in life. Somewhere where me and my husband could go to be alone and just enjoy each other and have a romantic dinner or something. Or someplace to chill when I'm angry and upset.
