In a couple of days my partner, our two dogs Buddy and Sweetie, our cat Gomez, and our newest “child” Jackay (a skeleton tarantula), will embark on a much needed vacation. We’ll be road tripping in our RV, destination Hot Springs, AR. Our travels will first take us to Austin and the Texas hill country then through the piney woods of east Texas. After a few days enjoying a river side camp site in Hot Springs, we’ll traverse back down south through Louisiana to enjoy a night at Coushatta casino and resort before landing back at our home RV resort in Houston.
Although we are excited about the trip, we haven’t really made many set plans. We’re simply just ecstatic about a change in scenery. We both need a break from the routine of day to day life.
A change in scenery should never be underestimated. What’s the power in it, however? It’s interrupting a cycle. In therapy, we often work to identify cycles that repeat in our life and then strive to interrupt them to create change. When we do this, we see things differently. We see what works for us and what doesn’t. Interruptions in cycles are essential to our growth as humans, in our relationships with others, and in our relationship with self.
What opportunities do you have to interrupt the cycle of your life? To see things anew? To welcome the opportunity to grow? Whether you take a RV road trip, a flight across the pond, a cruise to the caribbean or Alaska, or just a simple overnight trip, recognize the power in a change of scenery.
Are you looking for relief from life’s distress? I’d love the opportunity to work with you to identify where we can interrupt the cycle and create growth through change. Let’s talk. You can book a free 15 minute consult with me by clicking below.
