All by my damn self

I can’t think of a better way to start this four day weekend, than with a little bit of me time. Free of any responsibility.

After my morning workout, I decided to grab coffee and breakfast, at Communal Coffee, a cute little spot I’ve been dying to try.

I think the one thing I really miss since becoming a mom are peaceful mornings. I was never a morning person, so as you can imagine, that transition alone was tough on me. Now, I can have the house cleaned, groceries put away, and a workout done, all by 10 a.m.

Like most moms, I’m always on the go, with a never ending to-do list. So, a quiet, mellow breakfast, all by my damn self, was just what I needed. I was able to really enjoy my cup of coffee, eat my food as slowly as I wanted and without having four little hands in it, and quietly read a book. It was glorious!

As funny as it sounds, I love spending time with myself. It almost never happens, so when it does it’s refreshing. It helps me clear my head and shake off any anxieties. It gives me a chance to reflect on and process everything that’s currently going on in my life. It allows me to breathe.

Conveniently, there was a locally owned nursery next door, so I decided to check it out. I ended up getting a few succulents, since my terrariums have been looking pretty sad lately. I’m hoping I can keep this bunch alive longer than the last.

When I woke up this morning I knew it was going to be one of those soul cleansing days. I set good intentions and enjoyed everything about today.

  1. Sounds great! Every now and again (when I can) I snag days like this. When people ask why I want to go alone I explain just as you did in your post. Great post! Glad you were able to get some “me” time! πŸ™‚
