Alone Time September 23, 2011
Q. Hi Jenni (with an “I”, hehe)! I’m an avid reader of your blog/website. I love reading all your posts: Family, Fashion, Food, Beauty, Gadget, Lifestyle, Blogs, and I also read all your fan mails on Amazing Readers! I’m in awe of how you balance family and fashion. I’m a stay at home mom with three kids and bored with my routine. Don’t get me wrong, I love my family but I’m at a point in my life where I want to spice things up. Nothing wild, just something that is not routinary. I was wondering, if it’s not too much to ask, could you document your day for me and your hoards of readers? I’m interested to know how you juggle life! Please! You’re such an inspiration! Thank you sooooooo much!
Please excuse me too for taking so long to respond to your email, but as some of you may know, I’ve been a busy bee! I thought this would be the prefect time to answer your request as I have a solution on how to “spice things up” in your life!
Whenever I’m feeling bored or uninspired, instead of painting the town red, I take time to recharge my body and soul by means of spending some time alone.
Spending some “me” time allows me to unwind and reflect on what’s happening in my life. It’s also the perfect time to toss out the bad thoughts, relish the good ones, and relax.
Two weeks ago, my morning meetings got postponed and I found myself with five hours of free time before I had to pick-up Aryanna from school and attend an evening pre production meeting.
I took advantage of it used it for “me” time!
11:00 am Just me and my Starbucks
12:00 pm Fine dining for lunch
I rarely go to restaurants for lunch more so, eat a three-course meal because I just don’t have the time. I usually cook a quick meal at home or just grab takeout.
Me time means to indulge.
1:30pm I did a bit of shopping.
2:30pm Sat on a bench at Greenbelt 5
It’s nice to just sit and not have to answer any questions. Sitting quietly can be beneficial in lowering blood pressure and allowing you to catch your breath.
3:00 pm Recharged, refreshed, and relaxed.
Time to pick-up Aryanna!
Solitude is a positive state, necessary to keep one sane and healthy. It’s only when you make time for yourself that you can reflect on your own inner desires, set new goals, and discover your courage to pursue your dreams. Now, isn’t that exciting?
Shoppingero/shoppingera, remember that a little “me” time, goes a long way!
