I left town today.
To go to LA. More specifically Universal Studios.
I needed to escape.
My friend and I have planned this trip since June. And many postponed plans later, we finally went.
After all that happened at work recently and my non-stop headache for a week now, I would typically just stay home to avoid any anxiety from happening.
But I felt like I needed to go despite the fact that I had a pounding headache for 7 days now.
And I’m glad I did.
I needed to leave town. I needed to be in a new environment.
It didn’t even have to be a theme park, I just needed to escape.
But the thing that I love about theme parks is that I don’t think about all my problems and worries.
I can escape and be transported to a different world. I can scream all my anger away on fast scary rides. I have a smile on my face from the fun of the rides. A real smile, oh it’s been too long.
This feeling is refreshing.
Whenever you get the chance, escape.
