In a few weeks it will be my birthday. I have never been one to make a big deal out of my own birthday. In fact I want to keep it as low key as possible. I just don’t see it as a big deal. I know some people do. They celebrate all day, all week , even all month. That’s great! Just not for me
This year for my birthday I want to relax. I want to rest. I want to get away from the world and more importantly my thoughts and my anxieties. I don’t want to think about food, work, weight, exercise,calories, bills, what society thinks and the list goes on.
It may sound weird to some but it is what I truly want. I want a night away at a pretty bed and breakfast. I want to eat delicious food. Read magazines and books. People watch. Watch the sunrise. Drink coffee. Relax. Alone. Yup, alone.
I am not depressed or sad or lacking friends. I just want to be alone so that I can think clearly and enjoy the simple things that I have not been able to enjoy for so many years. I do not want an agenda. I want to do what I want when I want. Not have to check in on anyone or take care of anyone. Just myself (and lily of course). Call me selfish. Call me weird. I don’t care. This is me. Take it or leave it 🙂
So I have two plans in mind. A New hope getaway where I can explore the canal by foot or bike, visit shops and restaurants, people watch and most of all. Relax
An ocean city bed and breakfast get away. More of the same. People watching, pizza?🍕bike riding along the coast , collect seashells, read, write, cuddle with lily. Ice cream? Salt water taffy!? Whatever I feel like.
I do know one thing for sure. Ocean city or New hope I will definitely be doing this…….
I need to find a basket for lily. That is my birthday gift :). If not. I guess I could always go with this …..
