Journaling Prompt – Taking Flight

March 18th, 2009 by Avital

Taking Flight - Safe Haven There are times in life when we feel the need to take flight. We wish we could grow wings and fly away to our a safe haven.

There are numerous reasons to take flight. A difficult phase in life. An impossible struggle. A hurtful situation – either physically (i.e. facing a bully…) or psychologically. An unsuccessful business move or a general feeling of discomfort with the present situation.

Safe havens can be perceived in two different ways:

  1. An actual place you go to, when you want to get detached. A book. The park. The beach. A mountain trail. Etc.
  2. A fantastic place where you’d rather be, if only you could teleport yourself there…

For this week’s journaling prompt you can take the notion of taking flight either way.

  • Where do you go to when you feel the need to hide?
  • From which situations would you like to take flight?
  • Have you ever wanted to disappear? When? What happened?
  • If you were able to grow wings and fly, where would you go to?

When I feel overwhelmed I either start painting or read a book I feel connected to. I wish I could teleport myself to a place where only pure goodness exists (I’m not sure they’ll let me in…) Being next to my nephew is close enough…

    I hate saying it … but almost everyday I would love to ‘disappear’ and just drive on instead of continuing to where I have to be … work, home … where ever. I guess that means I really do need a vacation – I have three sons 5 and under. A full time job. A dog. 6 fish. A desire to learn to create art (though I don’t know how) and become a better scrapbooker. I want … everything.

      Wow, Melanie, I admire you. (Having 3 sons 5 and under was more than enough). No wonder you feel like a vacation is a necessity… It must be. I hope you’ll get there soon and wish you the possibility to find some time to explore creating art and scrapbooking, as your daily refuge.
