Much Needed Space

sleepPeople need space, and I for one needed one today. Call it weird, but I decided to cut myself off from the world we live in. I called in sick (which I am – flu bug and all), unplugged the home phone, turned off my cellphone, took some meds and red a book till I fell asleep. For a couple hours, I was able to focus on myself. No work to think of, no phone calls, a little time away from the family – just time for me and the things I like doing on my own.  And surprisingly, it felt good. I enjoyed it immensely, that I wanted to do it all over again…

      thank you, june. as they use to say, the best things in life are free. and in this case, who would have thought that simply spending a day for myself and turning off all tech gadgets would do the trick. thanks again for the kind words, and your blog – it’s lovely! how i wish i’d get the chance to explore, it’s a childhood dream for me. hopefully, by next year. hehehe!

    sometimes it is hard to just disconnect yourself from the world… but it must be a great feeling. have to try it one of these days.
