Where is your "happy place", that place your mind goes when you are upset?

Mine is a mountain in Nfld, or it was until I found a place just like it here in Ontario. I found it when I was a teenager and took a hike up a mountain. We came out of a clearing onto a lake with the mountain top behind it. It was the most beautiful place I had ever seen and to this day whenever I am having trouble dealing with life, I take myself there in my mind. Last summer I was lucky enough to meet my current boyfriend. When I met him I felt like he was "the one" and when he invited me to his weekend getaway I knew for sure. It looked almost identical to my happy place (my avatar) and now I get to go there every weekend with him. I find a great deal of joy there and it's a recharge for the work week. I'd love to know about your happy place if you have one and if you don't, why not?

I hope you have a nice soothing view out the window. I find my housework gets done much faster when I'm angry!

I always try to be with my friends when i am upset...I dont look for any place to go to but yes going out with friends and sharing my problems with them really makes me feel better ....where ever the place may be...

What would we do without our friends? They can be a great support when we need them.
