My Happy Place

A few weeks ago WordPress Posted a writing prompt about happy places. The prompt asked where it was and how and when I go there. That was a good prompt because it made me think. That is, when I realized that I’m not sure where my happy place is. It isn’t a physical place. It’s somewhere inside my mind where my Inner child plays. I can’t nail down any particular reason that I would go there. I just like it there. I guess. my happy place has no form and it can take many forms. It’s a place of peace.

Sometimes its a quiet place with trees and gentle creatures. Sometimes it’s on or under the ocean. Sometimes it’s in space. Sometimes it’s a Secret room. It doesn’t really matter because I am comfortable there. There’s no real conflict there because I’m usually alone, except for my Inner Child. my happy place is a hiding place. I don’t have to do anything there. I can just sit and watch the child play. She helps me to work through things. I go to my happy place most often when I have a problem to inner child acts out scenarios that help me to find the right answers.

I can’t say if my happy place is a healthy place. I think it is, but it can be unhealthy too. Living in your head can cause problems. It can get lonely there. It’s a good place to visit but I shouldn’t try to live there.

No, my happy place is not a place where I can live all the time. It’s a place to visit from time to time when I need to get away from my life. That’s what a happy place is for — an escape from the day-to-day stress of Life. That’s healthy, getting away from stress. I can relax in my happy place. I can create in my happy place.

Going to my happy place is like taking a mini-vacation with no cost or travel time. I can’t get a lot of souvenirs there, but then, I can visit it any time that I choose. On the other hand, if you count the stories that have their creative births in my happy place, I bring back a lot of good things.

My happy place requires no visas or, worse, injections, and it is truly a good place to visit, but living there? No, I think I’d quickly get bored — or go insane. Anyway, it would lose its magic. I just go there to visit with my Inner Child who lives there. That’s good enough for me.


I am not one who is comfortable talking about myself but here goes. I enjoy writing, family history, and reading. I decided to do this blog because I wanted to try something new. I decided to make it a weekly blog because I wasn't sure that I could keep up with a daily one, and monthly seemed like I was writing a magazine. I think I did ok with my choices. You'll notice that there are not a lot of graphics on my site. That's because there are graphics plastered everywhere on the Internet and those sites sometimes take forever to load. This blog is a place where you can kick back, relax and be ready to be amused. At least I hope I willbamuse you. This blog is on a variety of subjects from my ficitional cat agency, the FFL, which is monthly, to instructional blogs to editorials, which are my opinions only. I admit that I don't know everything and could be wrong -- I frequently am. Now, stop reading about me and read what I have to say!
