Default Where is your happy place?

Seems the phrase "put your mind in a happy place" has been started, I was wondering what was everyones "Happy" place. And because I know cruising is all our "happy" place, pickesomething other then cruising.

Mary Margaret


Still trying to figure out mine.

My boat................that hole in the water to which you throw money.

Every once in a while I get to spend a weekend night on it and it's so peaceful to sit on the back sipping on a cold brew and BS'ing with the live-aboards in the marina. Maybe one day I'll be able to cast off those dock lines and overnight on the open seas.

Regards,
Thomas

Why is it so hard to think of a "happy place" other than on a cruise ship?.......

The days when my girlfriend used to rent an entire campground up in the Angeles National Forest over Labor Day weekend and rent each site to us...I *loved* being able to sit on my lawn chair in the sun, sipping a wine cooler without any sound of city traffic while reading a lovely book and taking a nap. Then on the Saturday night of the weekend, she would come around to each campsite with her pony hooked up to a buckboard and bring us all to the main campsite for a delicious BBQ and sitting around the campfire afterwards singing "Hotel California" to someone's guitar...

Ahhhh! Those days were *so* relaxing...

Anyplace that I know I am alive. At my age I have to pinch myself, or have Helen Pinch me to be sure I am alive. Anyplace that i can enjoy like being on a cruise ship to some destination that I have not been before. Anyplace that I am with my love for all most 63 years. Just thinking our anniversary coming this January 3rd.

I think of my husband - I'm sure it lowers my blood pressure and calms me down. Otherwise I think of a beach - any beach - anywhere - THAT makes me happy!

My happy place is our weekend home up on the Rappahannock "rivah" . Just sitting on the deck watching the sun go down with some type boat drink in my hand. <vbg>

Of course this is a summer happy place,,,and I am darn grumpy now as my winter time happy place is still 40 days away. <VBG>

your post is very timely for me. i had a root canal done just 3 days after i got home from my cruise. the dentist said "think happy thoughts, Rhonda", so i let my mind take me to the blues and greens of the ocean and the warmth of the sand!!! but my happy place is snuggled warm in my bed, watching tv and giving my sweet little cocker spaniel lots of pets.

Snuggled in front of the fireplace with my dh and son while the wind howls outside....watching a sporting event, preferably football!

After that, the beach.....

And finally, peering out of my tent at the stars on a perfect camping night.

Sitting in a comfortable chair on our back screened patio on a sunny late afternoon, with a good book and one of Kim's extra-dry martinis, dividing my time between reading and watching the wildlife out on or by the lake. It doesn't get any better than that!
