For those of you following my blog, I've joined Blog Dare for 2012. It gives you daily prompts to write about...we'll see how I keep up! I'm a few days late, but at least I'm starting somewhere.
#6. Where do I go when I need time to myself or regrouping time? To my room. I would love love love to have my own little hut or something outside of my house that I could escape to, but this is real life. Maybe eventually I'll get my basement living room functioning how I would like it to so that it can become "my" space. But until then, I head for my room. More specifically, my bed. I don't know what it is about laying in my bed that just calms me down, but I love it.
I used to do a lot of writing right before going to sleep. I have notebooks full, front and back, of just the thoughts and happenings in my head. I could be the only one home (which was rare) or the only one awake and I still couldn't write a thing unless I was in my room. Even as an adult, I experience the same thing. Though as an adult now, I rarely get time to myself. With a 2 and 3 year old running me around from early morning to late evening, I'm tired at night. When I'm not, I just want to enjoy my husband's company before I get tired, which would only be a matter of time.
One of my goals for this year though is to make time for myself. I'm not good with New Year's Resolutions, but to want change, you have to create it I suppose. So time to myself can mean anything from blogging, to reading, to doing yoga. And hopefully in the comfort of my room! <3
