The way to happiness

Todays task is to use a map as a muse. So let me tell you how to come to one of my favorite places in this world so far…I´m sure I´ll get to see a lot more, but this one has a deep meaning to it. It´s a place of happiness. And now I´ll show you the way there.

  1. When you´ve gotten out of the train and down the stairs make sure you´re on the side where the “Dunkin´Donut” store is.
  2. Leave the station building and you should find yourself looking at a rather big bric building, to be exact, you should be looking directly at the entrance to the parking entrance.
  3. Take a turn to the left and walk past the bus staition, smiling at the bus driver, because driving a bus all day long is not something to amusing and a simple smile can really brighten someones day.
  4. Stop at the red light and cross the street at your right at the green light.
  5. Walk past the bank and along this one way street, yes the one with the cute trees on the sidewalk.
  6. You should be walking past “Barnes and Noble”, don´t!
  7. Please stop there and take a look inside. I never could just walk by there, it always screamed “come, come in!”…so you shouldn´t either. Maybe buy a book or two, because we all know that books are magical.
  8. Once you´ve managed to only buy two books instead of eleven, you should be standing on the street again, looking at a store across the street called “Panera Bread”. You deserve a little something, so do go in there and order a smoothie or anything you like. I always took the berry smoothie, since they made it taste like heaven and I could never get enough of that..
  9. As you come out, cross the street and walk in the direction where the street takes a small bend. You should see a tall bric building before you.
  10. This is the library, equally amazing as the bookstore you´ve just visited and this ones definitely the budget-friendlier one…
  11. Walk past the nail studio and the italian restaurant…you just had a snack.
  12. Now you should stand right next to the pre-heaven on earth…Whole Foods… Oh how much I love it. Before you pass and walk on, give the old man with the grey hair sitting there a little change, he needs it and it´s not much to you.
  13. Now cross the street and walk straight on.
  14. You should be standing next to a massive church now. If it´s open, take a look inside.
  15. As you walk on, you might notice the trees getting bigger and all in all everything getting greener. The houses are also more homey now.
  16. Stop at the stop sign and take a look around you. Isn´t is beautiful.
  17. Cross the street and continue breathing in the fresh air. A little later you should stand right next to a big lawn with trees planed symmetrically on it. If that´s the case, you´re on the right track.
    Walk straight on, past the field. You´re almost there.
  18. When the street ends, you should again see a lawn before you and depending on whether the trees still have their leaves or it´s winter, you can see the lake, as big as the sea.
  19. Cross the road and walk toward the lake, you should be standing next to a little house. Continue on towards the lake and onto the rocks separating the lake and the tiny road as well as the lawn.
  20. Climb further down, sit down on one of the rocks, you shouldn´t be able to see anyone from here and no one should be able to see you. It should be just you, the sea, the rocks, just you and nature.
  21. You´ve reached your destination. Stay as long as you wish or rather as long as you need.

  1. I thoroughly enjoyed this post! And I can never walk past a Barns and Nobles either. I actually bought two books this past Sunday. 😉 and the rocks and sea are therapy. I wish I lived closer to the ocean! I do love our mountains though. Trail running is good therapy too…

    1. Thanks! Yes, walking past barns and nobles is like walking by one million kids saying “Come give me a hug”…okay that wasn´t the best comparison…
      I don´t live there (near the sea) anymore, I wish I would. Like you, I have a lot of mountains close to me, but not as close to just go trail running… I bet it is really good therapy as well, another kind as the sea and rocks, but definitely one.
      Thanks for answering! I always love hearing from you:-) XO
