When I am ME

When I am ME..

Firstly What is ME time : (My idea of ME time)

1.    When you can do what you like
2.    When you are NOT loaded with stress of a zillion To-Do things
3.    When you can switch off your mind to all distractions (the unwelcome ones)
4.    When you can feel the silence within yourself even with noise all around
5.    When what you do is just for your own satisfaction
6.    When you do something which is not a routine (or can be a routine but it meets all the above criteria too)
7.    When you can be just yourself – not a wife, not a mother, not a daughter (men can replace that as per their gender J ) but just an individual
8.    When it unrelated to career, families, relationships, community and anything else
9.    When it’s a break – a break for sanity’s sake
10.  When its not about duties and responsibilities

Now – What can be done is very  time dependent.  It can depend on how much time we can spare for ourselves. It can vary from having a cup of coffee sitting in your fav chair or just outside on porch(if weather permits) to long brisk walk to a call to sibling or friend or mom (as it goes for many females) or a movie in a theater.

To me it’s important to have some time for myself especially at the end of the day.  A moment of no household work, no phones, no internet surfing, no talking – just plain silence. But then such a moment is a rare one to get.

Here are some of my favorite things to do whenever I can manage time off from the so called duties.
1.    Lying on couch doing nothing – just nothing
2.    Watching a movie on TV while sipping some tea and then lying with my fav blanket on
3.    Reading a book
That’s all I manage to do whenever I can…
That’s Me time. That’s my time to regain sanity.

I would love to go out to café and sit and read and sip coffee, I would like to go out to watch movies, I would like to take soak in a warm bath for hours, I would like to go out for walks with my little girl, I would like to go to library and browse through shelves and shelves of books and sit and read, I would like to go to the parlour and get a nice massage done.
