Did I go out with my childless friends I never see? Did I go to a movie alone? Did I run errands, clean the house or go to the spa?
I laid in my bed.
It was wonderful.
I didn't feel guilty.
There was no one that needed help; no one needed anything from me (except my dog who enjoyed the attention). It was quiet. I don't think I have ever been in my house alone.
When I am on my yoga mat I am alone. Although often surrounded inches away from many other yogis, I am alone within myself. This is one of the many reasons I connect with yoga. No matter how chaotic life is when I get on my mat I can only concentrate on my needs, my body and myself.
I love taking care of my children, my husband and our home, yet some days we all need to be alone to refresh, rejuvenate and relax.
What would you do with 12 hours alone?
