Taking Yourself Out For Coffee

Last Friday , Kris was at work and I was on my day off. I went to our favourite Cafe to enjoy a good cup of coffee.

I felt guilty going there alone and not waiting for Kris to be free so we can have coffee together. I really love my husband’s company that going there alone is a bit weird. I stopped myself from thinking that way and said out loud that going out on solo is not an entirely bad idea.

I placed my phone on silent mode and placed it inside my bag. I opened my journal and started writing in my thoughts and think about my life and our life together. It has been 6 months since we have moved to Australia. Moving on with our lives meant leaving but not forgetting our past. New Zealand will always be home to us but we are meant to move forward and continue with our adventure. It felt good to know that each chapter of our lives is authored by God and that there are no mistakes in His book as long as we walk according to His will.

We can easily become busy in our jobs and in social media that we sometimes forget to pause, reflect and meditate.

Life can become a routine at times. It can be tiring but giving yourself a break to observe everything happening around you from a different perspective can give you a fresh start. It can also be a powerful opportunity to be reminded of God’s never ending faithfulness in our lives.

I believe that having your “me time” is not selfish but rather a special of way giving yourself that kindness and love so you can have the capacity to be kind and loving to those important to you.

How about you? How do you spend time alone to recharge?

  1. My husband works M-F and I’m on disability. So, I have a lot of alone time. I do things in baby pieces. So, it never seems like anything done. I talk to my dogs and admttedly I talk to myself.

    Luckily my husband is fine w/ anything I mange to do and then I basically keep him company when he does what needs to get done.

    The way I am makes me feel guilty about his work job & home job. If I try to do more than I know I should I’m down out for multiple days…. sigh Se la vi, right?

  2. In nature if I can. Or running, which I should get into.
    Love your drawings… or journaling which I haven’t done in a while.
    Love, light and glitter

      1. Yeah, I often take a break at work (I mean when it is break time) and run quickly around the park, or just get outside for a minute.
