Where Do You Go to Relax?


Genny over at My Cup 2 Yours asks today, for Talkin’ About Thursday: Where do you go to relax?

My answer? Yosemite. True, I can’t go all that often. We usually get there about once a year. But when I’m there, walking around the snow-covered valley floor and looking at Half Dome and El Capitan, I realize that I’m just one small person in the world and that my problems, in the scheme of things, aren’t all that big.

For a busy mom who feels tied to her car and to-do list much of the time, that’s no small thing.

    I love Yosemite. Can you believe I’ve lived in California all of my life and have only been there once? Your picture makes me want to go there!

    Honestly, I can hear the wind through the valley when I look at this pic. Really takes me right back there.

    My happy place is Kripalu. I haven’t been since I was pregnant with my first. I was 18 weeks pregnant, and stayed for a long weekend. I had such huge emotional growth during that trip. I actually found myself sitting against the wall sobbing while people danced around me — it was such an emotional experience.

    I’d like to go back some day soon, but I can’t bring myself to go away without the kids. So for now I’m going to have to settle for the yoga studio a few towns away…

    Karen, what an experience you had. Wow. That time will always be tied, in your mind, with that stage in your life. I hope you get back there someday. Thanks for sharing this.

    I’ve always wanted to go to Yosemite. Maybe someday…

    I relax…at home. I love being home in the company of my family.

    Either that or I like to go out walking/hiking somewhere. I am so inspired by nature.

    You are so fortunate to live in Arizona, Stephanie. A grew up there, and I know the opportunities to be out in nature are plentiful — OK, except in July when it’s 115 degrees! But we spent a lot of time camping in the mountains and exploring in the desert when I was a kid. Good family memories.
