Doesn’t this look like the perfect hiding place? My kitty was sitting in my work chair, in the sunshine, covering her face in my jacket. Do you remember when you were a kid and if your eyes were covered and you couldn’t see anything, you thought no one could see you either? I loved playing hide and seek with the kids when they thought like this. It always made me smile.
We all need a hiding place to get away and to not be seen for awhile. There is a thrill in the hiding, and seeking a truly secretive place. There’s an excitement that comes moments before and when you are found too. I love this type of thrill.
When you’re hiding, it feels like you’re being sneaky. There must be a thrill in that too. And sometimes we hide away to just be alone and undisturbed.
Where do you go to hide away?
I love to retreat to my bedroom and to shut the door. Sometimes I hide in the garage because it’s really quiet and warm and no one comes looking for me there. And sometimes I take a little longer in the rest room, because it’s a fair excuse to be hiding away all alone while you’re “busy.”
Enjoy the quiet moments of your day, hiding away from sight once in awhile and breathe.
