I don't know what your life looks like but mine is
loud, busy, frenetic, and often, filled with much to do.
Solitude is at an all-time premium and sometimes, I become angry when I can't find a real moment of peace.
So this morning after a less then satisfying run, I laid down and stretched for a really long time by myself.
My right shin was screaming, my feet were on fire, my shoulders ached and I recognized that its time for some alone time. And not the kind of alone time where you fold the last load of laundry or you go grocery shopping or you fill in the blank.
I'm talking about genuine, authentic, quiet. Where you don't "do" anything...except maybe breathe...where the mental to-do lists fall off, the guilty feelings of "should" or "can't" go away and you are by yourself...entirely alone and quiet.
How do I do this? Carve out a space that is entirely mine. I'm all ears.
