On the tenth day of Christmas my true love gave to me…an escape route.

Before the holidays come to an end, it is likely that some of you will feel your inner Holden Caulfield and will need an escape route. Wouldn’t it be nice if in life we had pre-planned escape routes? We need someone to make an announcement, “In case of an emotional, personal or stress related emergency, you can find exits here, here and here.”

Why not set some up in advance? The need to get away from things isn’t limited to needing to escape the holidays, family, in-laws or out-laws. There is a need for each of us to escape our normal day-to-day. No matter where you live, where you work or where you went for Christmas vacation…we all need a day of R & R our way! Choose the path you want, but get out into nature. Find a river, a beach, a stream or a trail…and follow it. You’ll be amazed at the secrets you can unlock in yourself when you spend time in the wild!

This is the tenth post in this series, let me recommend you first read ‘Twelve Debts of Christmas‘, ‘Family Holiday Ground Rules’, ‘1 Million Dollars’‘A Mental Breakdown’‘Equity’, ‘Freedom’‘Entertainment’, ‘Time’ and ‘Tech Free Space’.


About Hiram

Eventually, all things merge into one, and a river runs through it. The river was cut by the world's great flood and runs over rocks from the basement of time. On some of the rocks are timeless raindrops. Under the rocks are the words, and some of the words are theirs. Norman Maclean, A River Runs Through It and Other Stories
