    I haven't had some in a while,

    being a mother of a little baby girl didn't leave much room for alone time, unless her daddy watches her for a me. That's very rare but it dose happen. Sometimes my days get overwhelming and I have a panic attack or get crazy moods or cry watching disney movies. I love my...

    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...

    It's not like I want to be alone all the time,

    but things can get pretty ugly if I don't get at least SOME alone time. Even if I'm with my favorite people in the entire world, eventually I'll just need to be alone for the sake of mental stability

    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...
