Roadblocks are there to teach you patience, persistence and perseverance. But what if you're tired of being strong and just want to take your mind off of the situation. What do you do? Travel.
Yes, travel. It's not running away from your problems. It is allowing yourself distance to see your obstacle from all sides. It gives you much needed perspective. One thing I have learned, do not allow technology during your trip. Even if it is just to go see a family member in another country.
These issues will find any way they can to follow you. The last thing you need is to be reminded of whatever is bothering you. Live in the moment and free your mind. Let loose and have fun. Be sure to see the light at the end of the tunnel. Are you as tired of the clichés as I am?
But seriously, the best thing you can do when an obstacle or change comes about in your life is look it at from all sides. Spend time with family and friends; people in your life who you trust and who accept you. They are the support system you need to get through any of the curve balls life throws at you.
Take lots of pictures while you're at it. I'm paraphrasing Miley Cyrus here but, there is more to life than reaching your destination; it's about the climb.
