    My Time For Escape

    I am usually doing multiple things at once. Texting, chatting, reading, writing, working, helping out my mom, taking care of my responsibilities, etc. Sometimes I just need a break to do one thing at a time and be care free unapologetically :) There is not a more freeing feeling...

    Oh Sometimes

    I Do Well During The Day, But At Night ...

    Alone But Not Lonely

    My alone time is very important to me. Especially after an evening with dinner or overnight guests. I like to have people around but lately a whole lot seem suffocating. To some I may appear antisocial when I escape to our front veranda for solace and fresh air when I'm cooking...

    Being alone can give you time to be at peace and think. Everyone needs it. Doesn't everyone need some time to think about someone and not hear people chattering in the background?
