I certainly have my share of alone time, especially now since summer is over and my kids are back at school. I relish the quiet. However, physically being alone does not compare to mentally being alone. For instance I am currently sitting in my office alone, writing this post and I just realized that I never loaded the washing machine with anything and now if I don't, I won't have any workout clothes to wear tomorrow. Be right back.
Ok, I'm back. Mental alone time is really important to me. It's where I process everything that's spinning in my head. It's when I think. It's when I get ideas. It's when I get creative. I try to commit every Thursday to going on an adventure to capture some mental alone time (I love adventures too). This past Thursday, I went on an adventure to Longwood Gardens in Kennet Square, PA. I've just recently started going there and I can't imagine why I haven't been earlier! It's fabulous! If you haven't been, I highly recommend it. The flowers are beautiful and on the day I went the weather was just too perfect there wasn't even a reason to head in to the indoor garden. None-the-less I did, to get to the water lily display, and the smell inside was amazing!
Mental aloneness; do it!
