Somewhere

Have you ever just felt like you needed to get away? Just away from everything. That's how I feel right now. Maybe I will just get in my car and drive. Hwy 40 will take me a long way away. When I look back at previous blog posts (from the very day I started this journey) I feel like I try to put on this masquerade that my life is perfect. And of course it isn't. No one's is. The thing is; who wants to read a blog that is depressing or down all the time? And please believe me when I say that my life is not horrible or that I have lied in any way on here. I share my life on my blog as a way to meet new people but also as a way for me to look back and remember it. This blog is my online journal. My life is just like everyone else's; 100% not perfect. So, I am sure that most of you understand my urgent need to just go; somewhere, anywhere but here. I don't want to be gone forever. I just want to get in my car, hit the highway, and be by myself. I'll be back, I promise.

Thinking of you!

Please don't feel like you have to answer to your bloggy friends. We are here to help you not be a burden :). Take all the time you need! We all have to have time to ourselves for some peace & quiet!

And I'm right there with you, my "real" life is anything but peaches and rainbows...most days I just want to scream.

Mallory said...

You're right, this is a journal for YOU. No need to answer to any of us, although I know it can feel that way at times. Thinking about you!

Megan said...

That is definitely a normal feeling!! We have all been there!! Praying for you!!

We all feel like this at times. It wouldn't be life if we didn't have our ups and downs. Thinking of you.

Everyone feels this way, just DO IT!

My biggest regret about my blog is that I only portray the fun, silly, or happy stuff about my life and barely touch on the negative. In the blogging world, a lot of people do this, because like you said, who wants to read about negative stuff or bad days? That doesn't mean they don't happen!

But it's certainly okay to have a bad day, week, etc and want to get away from it. Thinking of you :-)

I completely understand.... I think it has to do with WINTER... months like this, wouldn't it be nice to live on the beach?? :) Hope you find that "getaway!"

Katie said...

I feel the exact same way about wanting to just get away right now!

On a positive note- Thank you for stopping by my blog the other day! I enjoyed your comment and can't wait to read more of your blog- happy OR sad post!

Of course we all know and understand that feeling! We all have our days! I hope yours gets a lil sunnier and better. XOXOXO

I love when bloggers open up and share their real feelings occasionally. It makes you more like the rest of us! Take that road trip and have fun! :) Just come back! :)

Ruth said...

I totally get it. We all have those days when we just need to get away. I have had a couple recently.

Kendra said...

Girl, I get it. You are VERY positive and I admire that! I have never thought you were trying to convey that everything was perfect, just that you have a good outlook =).

But I hear ya, and I hope you get a break and come back refreshed and renewed.

Big hugs.

This happens to me all the time! Somedays I just want to go and rent a hotel room, have takeout and watch TV in peace and quiet.
