Remember the movie Happy Gilmore? Great Movie! Remember when Chubbs was teaching Gilmore how to let go of his anger in order to putt better. Chubbs told him to picture a perfect place where all his anger would disappear.
My Happy Place:
I am lying on my back, looking up at the crystal blue sky. I'm under the shade of a mammoth oak tree. The field around me is an ocean of green with yellow wildflowers sprouting everywhere. I close my eyes and relax. I take deep breaths; slow methodical breaths. You can see my chest and stomach rise and fall. I focus on relaxing each body part, one at a time; head, shoulders, arms, hands, all the way down my body. My body slowly floats amidst this field of wildflowers. The more I breathe, the more relaxed I feel and I just drift away. This is my happy place!
~ my mental get-away
~ my peaceful retreat
~ where I go when I'm unhappy
~ what I dream of to relax my tension (anxiety attacks)
This Happy Place is also similar to my Rest In Peace place...more on that place next time.
Before I go, let me leave you with my favorite quotes from Happy Gilmore:
"The price is wrong, bitch."
Shooter McGavin: "I eat pieces of shit like you for breakfast."
Happy Gilmore: "You eat pieces of shit for breakfast?"
"You little son of a bitch ball! Why you don't you just go home? That's your HOME! Are you too good for your home? ANSWER ME! SUCK MY WHITE ASS BALL!"
