There is a place I use to go all the time that would always help me clear my head, calm my heart and just allow me to be for a few moments no matter how loud or stressful things got around me. It wasn't hard to find or get to, but it did amazing things that no other place could do for me.
When I had a bad break up or lost a friend, I went there. Come rain or shine, if things got out of hand or my depression hit hard, I went there. I would always walk to the end and sit, listen, breathe in and just let it all wash away.
I took many people there when not feeling or dealing with these things, but never told anyone why it was special to me. Most probably thought because I was a beach bum it was and that works for me.
I haven't been there in years, it's still there, still amazing, but I just can't do it like I use to. But I do plan on it, I will return to it.
We all need a place that does that for us or even a person. Anything that helps us center ourselves is a good thing. Hold on to it as long as you can, but don't be afraid to let go when the time is right to move on.
