I'm considering going away for a short break

January 8, 2008 6:02pm CST
I don't really know but recently I've had this feeling inside that I should go away for a week or weekend. I'm not sure why though, I do think it has something to do with the issues thats been floating around and the fact that people seem to playing games again. I can't decide though, as I've spoken to my wife about it. There's two places I've been considering one in which my family always go during the summer and another I went to visit on day trips. Personally i'd like a change and instead go to the other place, although my wife and son haven't been there and it's also more expensive. Well, how do you decide where to go? have you ever allowed things to get on top of you that a break does good? I don't want to go away and end up not enjoying it because the issues don't go away, that's partly why I'm considering the idea. ~Joey

If you have the resources, go for it, Joey. It is always good to be able to take a break every now and then, to recharge and appreciate the finer things in life. I would love to do that too lol. Dream on...

I think that would do you the world of good my friend, I think you are very melancholy and suffering with the Winter blues and a break for you and your lovely family would be just the tonic you need, away from the computer, away from your troubles, away from everything, you will come back feeling refreshed, stress free and much happier! Great idea. I have my beloved retreat to go to and look forward to, my next planned break is 7th February which won't be long now! It gives me something to look forward to now Christmas is over, we need something to look forward to! Good on you my friend, keep us updated as always!

I've still got to hope that cheeky will go. At the moment she's between the idea, i'm more leaning to go but she dislikes leaving the house since don't truly know people likes around here. we're forming ideas but still, i think if she does it'll probably be a weekened. Still i am looking forward to it if it does go ahead, ~Joey Thanks!

I think a holiday or short break would do you good. It would give you a break from your usual routine and let you enjoy relaxing a bit. Day trips can be lovely but staying away from home for a few nights is even better. If you did this you would probably go home with nice memories, good photos, feeling refreshed and not worrying as much about the issues that are facing you. In October I felt I wanted a weekend trip away before the start of winter and the end of the tourist trade months that are May to October. I took my baby son and we caught a train to Newcastle then a bus to Seahouses. I took him to a botanical garden, on a boat trip to see seals and to a historic castle. I returned home feeling happy and quite refreshed. Good luck in choosing what is right for you. If you go on a short break I hope that you will have a lovely time.

Hi Joey, I sure hope that you've taken the break and used a vacation. The way it works for me is, if I feel the need to go away and take a break, I do it. Because sometimes, it is the way for your body to say it needs a change from the usual place and things for a while.

When i go away I like to go to the same place everytime! i like to go visit my mom! she lives about 2000 miles away so its a costly trip to fly there, but its where i grew up so its always a fun trip and relaxing vacation as long as i dont spend to much time with the mother in law who also lives There. lol. That's never fun. RUSH RUSH RUSH, and she' has the time i say i'm going to spend there planned to the minute 6 months in advance. it's F'ing rotten! But she tell people i fly by the seat of my pants. LOL cause i dont plan everything 6 months in advance and to the minute. HEll when we were coming down a few xmas's ago, she had my hubby's son's cot set up in her room 4 months before we got there. NICE EH?!

Hi joey! I know how you feel. Sometimes we need to go away for a break. It will give us time to relax and think (meditate) about things that are happening in our lives. A relaxed mind and body is all you need, away from the pressures and the the realities of your daily life. You will come back with a reenergized spirit and surely you will look at things at different perspective. Go and explore unfamiliar places to take your mind off from the issues. Enjoy new sights and the company of your family.

But Joey, even if the issues don't go away, a small break is still beneficial. It's usually relaxing and a time that is pleasant for us. SOmetimes I feel the same. WE actually used to take away for a weekend of a mini week every once in a while. It felt so good and even if the problems were still back when the time was over, I had a much better disposition to deal with them:)

If you got the feeling that you need to taje a break, then do it. Take your wife and son and escape for a little while. It will do you good to recharge your batteries. Have fun and we will see you when you get back. Take care.

Do what you feel inside. This is your real self talking to you. Get the heck out of Dodge and go have some fun. Re-create your spiritual being and enjoy some tinglely times. Issues can always be faced and are better acted upon with a fresh mind. You don't need a reason to go enjoy yourself. All you need to do is give yourself permission to go somewhere. Happy travels, Joey and family!

I know how you feel Joey. There are alot of issues going on in my life these days also but we really don't have the money or the time to take off and go somewhere. I know the problem will still be here when i come back anyways. I just try to stay to myslef, husband and my daughter each day and that helps me get through alot of it. We are working hard to pay off some bills now also since my husband had to switch jobs and makes less money. I am working harder online to help us out. We would love to take a break and go to florida again. We are thinking about moving away from some problems that are around us right now when my husband retires. My daughter will graduate in a couple of years also. Alot of my problems stem from the county we are living in and some of my family members. It is not very peaceful here and we have got to do what we can to try to get out this area when he retires.
