This morning I took my morning walk alone. My boys seemed to be too lazy to get up early because of the activity we had yesterday. I woke up a little later too. I just walked nearby and caught some interesting things on my cam. I again started chasing butterflies. However, I failed to take a good shot. The butterflies were hyperactive again this time.
Being alone is good for myself too. This means I could spend some quality time with myself with just a few minutes. These days I had been busy with lots of things. Solitude is the time for me to clear my mind off things I no longer need to dwell on. I did just that.
This is also a “me” time wherein I feel happy to be around with myself. I hope it would resonate with others when I am back with the company of other human beings. I also noticed that by giving myself this kind of treat I am more capable of taking others; maybe because I was able to take care of myself too. Furthermore, Sherrie Burg Carter of Psychology Today says: spending time with yourself is preventative medicine to combat burnout. I agree with her one hundred and one percent!
Give yourself a break. Have a “me” time!
