Solitude

I originally shared this post on MameMusings! But today, I'm feeling the need to remind myself...

Solitude.

Why is does it seem so elusive for us mothers?

Perhaps, we make it more complicated than it has to be.

What exactly does solitude require of us?

Aloneness.

via
Impossible.

My first reaction to the possibility of finding time alone.

[Insert list of reasons why here.]

Critical.

What can we possibly give if we are not taking the time to be refreshed?

via
Possibility.

How can I give myself ten minutes of quiet each day?

If I start with five minutes is that okay?

Release.

I will not feel guilty for taking this time out for me.


Reflection.

My mind is finally free to be me.

Oh hello lovely thoughts, restful sighs and tensions eased.

Retreat.

Is this vacation for my soul?


Believe.

A content, rested mother (&wife) is one highly praised.

Today, take those five minutes…or even ten.

Set down your burdens.

Embrace.


Solitude.

I previously shared this post on MameMusings, but had to share this here as a reminder to take time out for quiet reflection.
