What do I need?


Today I was asked, “What do you need?” I had just updated my mother with what is going on with my dad; I expressed my frustrations, fears and stress. She listened, provided her input and then asked me what I needed. I almost cried because what I need is not simple, nor is it just one thing. So after the flood of unrealistic desires went through my mind like I need my dad to be more cooperative, I need a new job, hell, I need new shoes I responded with, “I need a real vacation.” I haven’t had a true vacation away from home (aside from an occasional weekend away) in about 5 years. Funds are tight so any time away from work has consisted of day trips or watching TV all day in my PJs. No wonder I feel like a blob.

Her response to me was, “I will see what I can come up with.” I don’t know what this means and I don’t want to assume what she is thinking. Would it be wrong to hope for an all-expense paid vacation to Hawaii? Probably, but hey, at this point perhaps just the possibility will get me through the week. 🙂

    You can always hope. And that would definitely be nice. I keep my fingers crossed!

    I think one thing that has helped me is that a vacation away doesn’t need to be expensive. In my case, I live in Florida so sometimes something as simple as a weekend on the other coast is all I need. A change of scenery, unfamiliar faces and new places to visit.

    So perhaps, if you do a bit of research, you can find somewhere that isn’t too local yet it will be a nice little getaway for you.

    Good luck!

      I do love the weekend get away, unfortunately even those are hard to come by lately. I really do need to make more of an effort.

    Nothing wrong with hoping, but have found that if I really want something I find away to make it happen.
    Sounds like you have a lot going on in your life, I hope it starts to get better for you.

      That is typically the best method, it’s just difficult when your still in the thick of it all.
      Thank you 🙂
