An act of escapology….

With it being winter, and with finances being tight, I haven’t been out that much. But today is different.

Though I can never bank on feeling ok for three days in a row (which hasn’t happened this time), I’ve decided to escape for the day. The sun is out, it’s another glorious day, and I’m off on a day out to the coast. I just need to escape; to break free for a while. Sea air and a good walk might give me a chance to relax and take stock. It has been a difficult year.

Today was a bit more of an effort to get out of the door. I must confess to not being in the frame of mind of the last two days. But drawing on that well-being toolkit that I’ve built up over several years, I made myself go out. I don’t want to be cooped up while the sun shines down on a perfect springlike day. I’ve lived in London for the majority of my life and the odd escape or two is always welcome.

Everything looks different when the sun shines. Gone is the gloom and dullness. Vibrancy abounds and a day like this can only be of benefit. So I’m going to enjoy it.
