Today I spent some much-needed “me time” out of the house and totally alone. It has been a long time since I have spent time by myself doing something I enjoy. I had just planned to run a few errands but added a few stops along the way. I headed down town to a local farmers market for grass-fed beef, fruits, and veggies. I usually have the kids with me so today I took time to smell the flowers literally. I walked to a couple of the antique stores that I have been wanting to visit since we moved here almost 4 years ago. My short trip home ended with a honk, a smile, and a wave as I passed by our local “Occupy.” I arrived home feeling refreshed. It is amazing what a difference 2 hours can make.
You know what? I really like hanging out with me! What do you do during your “me time?” Next time I think I will bring a book and drink coffee in a cozy cafe corner.
