Today, I am participating in
"Five Minute Friday"
This Friday's word is Lost
I will write for five minutes, no editing, about the word lost.
My husband traveled for his job and was gone almost weekly. It was “the dead” of winter and I had been cooped up in this house for weeks waiting for “old Man Winter” to give me a break. So my husband asked me to go with him.
He told me we would stay in a nice hotel with an indoor pool, spa, and workout room, down the road from a mall. How could I say no?
So I grabbed a couple of good books, my swim suit, workout clothes and even a little black dress in hopes we would make it out to a special dinner one night. We arrived, and my husband kept his promise. We had a beautiful room on the corner of the building with beautiful views of both the sunrise and the sunset.
Oh, how I relaxed that week. I forgot about everything, and everyone. I got lost in my new place, with no laundry to do or dishes to put away. And, I didn't feel a bit guilty about it.
I spent that week completely
I made it a point to not allow a negative thought or worry come my way. That beautiful hotel room was a “positivity sanctuary” for my soul.
I lost myself and
found myself all in one place.
I came back to our home and our daily routines with a clean attitude, fresher attitude and a clearer view of my world. I even felt like I weighed less, not just body weight, but world weight, the weight of the world on my shoulders was less.
Getting lost can be a good thing.
