Most people find that their problems follow them. A rental van, unless it’s a camper van, is likely to be miserable if you don’t have experience on how to outfit it, and that can be costly too. It might also be uncomfortable. Something like a Class C motorhome might be more comfortable.
Escaping usually isn’t the answer. We need to understand that most things in life we don’t have a choice over, what we do have a choice over is how we choose to deal with it. We can let stuff get to us and drag us down, or we can accept it as a life lesson and laugh it off. Happiness comes from within. Depression meds help a lot of people too.
People need to get over this “Me, Me, Me” attitude. Family and friends should always come first. Body, mind, and soul, we profit more by giving than by receiving. If we create a happy world around us, we will be happy too. If we create an unhappy world around us, we will be unhappy too. A smile is contagious, and after a short while all those people smiling back at you will lift your spirits too.
Put away your cell phone, stay off social media sites like facebook etc; and put away the games. There’s a better life beyond all that. Take a good look around and count your blessings. There’s people living in tents, under bridges, and in doorways, and you think “YOU” have problems?
If you’re bored, go volunteer helping the homeless, the elderly, or the disabled. The love and appreciation you’ll receive in return will surely lift your spirits.
Hobbies can be another great way to solve boredom. Something you enjoy doing that will never get old. My hobby is making money. Anytime I have spare time. or get bored, I spend that time learning new ways to make money. Then if I make some extra money, I can treat my loved ones or myself to something special. I learned to knit and crochet, so I could make special matching sweaters, hats, gloves, and scarves for my loved ones. There’s a million things we can do to keep from being bored. We are only limited by our own imaginations, and there’s unlimited places online to inspire us with new ideas.
Try to find things you can enjoy WITH your husband. Maybe a romantic weekend getaway, or a cruise, or even just a walk in the park. What about local attractions you can enjoy together, or maybe go out to a movie and dinner. It doesn’t have to be expensive to be enjoyable. Maybe just a drive in the country. Go watch the trains, planes, or boats, whatever is handy. Drive around and look at people’s Christmas lights and displays. I enjoy sightseeing old Victorian style houses with lots of gingerbread that are all painted up fancy. Once again, we’re only limited by our imaginations.
There are amazing places to go and things to do almost everywhere, often in our backyards. Google your city’s name followed by “attractions”. You might be amazed by what you’ve been missing out on. It’s the time of year for Christmas Bazaar’s too.
