Mental Aloneness

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!
