Sanctity of Retreat

Paradise exists where it is created, and it can be anywhere that brings you peace.

So many people take it for granted, and others overindulge in an imitation of paradise.

An imitation because they never enjoy seeing their reflection in the water.

They never feel the sun on their face, nor the breeze of the wind.

Joy is not found in their paradise because they’re lacking the emotions to feel it.

The ones that find their versions of paradise manifest it and make it unique to enjoy.

Sanctity could be found on a remote island off the coast of a big city if needed.

Some escape to backyards filled with the love and laughter of family and friends.

The place that makes you happy, your paradise, could be the one place you can finally be alone.

The moral of the story is…

The retreat of your own choosing is always a great journey to having a mindful paradise and escape from daily life.

Learn to enjoy every minute of your escapade…

It cannot keep you at peace forever.
