the last photo is something that i truly try to tell myself every day. i think that even at age 30, i have so much to learn, so much to accept of myself, and honestly, so much more work to do. i guess that i felt that by the time i reached this age....that i'd have it all figured out. boy was i ever wrong.
i think that this is a time when i am actually finding myself. i am more confident to pursue the things that interest me. i am stronger about branching out and doing things on my own. i am more comfortable spending time alone, and i actually long for it. as i am growing, i need more and more quiet time. time to reflect. time to accept. time to think. time to just be.
lately, i have really wanted to just get away and spend some time alone. i was trying to do some searching on places where i could go away for a weekend all alone and just focus on myself. maybe get a massage, lay in a big comfy bed reading a book, veg out, take a hot bath, and just be quiet. the thought of taking time like that to myself almost brings me to tears. i think it would totally rejuvinate my soul and my mind. hopefully i will find a place very soon. because i am certainly on the lookout.
