Sometimes you just need to do something new.
Go somewhere different.
At a time least likely.
When really, you shouldn’t be doing it.
And yet, YOU DO.
Because variety is the spice of life, right?
We would never usually plan a mid-week getaway, in the middle of July out of all months. But we were just about done with monotony, routine, work dictating life, and even though we just passed the school holiday season when we should have done something, we opted for the opposite and decided, NOW was as good a time as any.
Doing something, or going somewhere when you are usually least likely to, can be a freeing and eye-opening experience. Getting away in an unordinary period, feels more like a holiday, almost like you are cheating by getting away from it all, MORE SO than when you go on holiday in let’s say, Summer.
Getting away, gives you a different perspective. Whether it is on your current situation, on your relationships, on any issues you may have… on Life…
… and it gives you a different perspective of the Stars too.
We saw this tonight after dinner, heading back to our tree-cosy cabin by the water. I read somewhere that the next few days will be the time where you can actually see some of the planets with the naked eye, and so when I saw that crescent moon, and that dot to the left… I had to wonder…
It’s funny how some things are so much clearer, and the bigger picture becomes more obvious, when you step away… and into the night.
