Topic #121: Write about something you want to do, but know you shouldn’t.
I would like to book a holiday and just escape everything for a month or two, just take off and do some travelling. Sadly there are so many reasons why I shouldn’t, my health, my finances and my responsibilities. It’s so tempting to go away, especially all the adverts for holiday places and hearing people talking about where they are/have booked holidays to. In some ways it reinforces why I’m working so hard to get Holidays From Home up and running; but I only get why there’s a need for virtual holidays because I feel so trapped, just like the people I want to help.
I won’t book a holiday because I’m too sensible, I pace myself, I listen to my body and the ME, and I don’t spend more than I have; but there are days when I’d love to be reckless. Unfortunately I’ve suffered the consequence of non-reckless acts, I really don’t want to see what would happen if I intentionally did something reckless. I’ll stay being a good girl and keep finding alternative, virtual ways to escape.
