Yesterday I got couple of hours to myself. A friend came over to look after the twins and the husband headed to the Angry birds park with the boy. I planned on going for a long walk and maybe having a cup of coffee somewhere in peace and quiet.
When the friend arrived I rushed out of the house waving cheerfully. This me time was something that I needed so bad! I started walking and came up with an idea of going to a shopping center nearby. There are lots of coffee shops there, I was thinking.
On my way there I remembered that the boy needed new shoes so when I reached the shopping center I went to look for them in couple of stores. While I was looking for the shoes I remembered that the twins needed new windfleeces and actually there was something I needed from the pharmacy. My head was spinning when I thought about all the things I should do while I was there and had the opportunity.
Not relaxing me time at all. I couldn’t calm my mind when I should have.
I felt stupid having spent all that time inside in the shopping center. After finishing the salad I bought a coffee and let lady Starbucks accompany me home.
On my way home I breathed in and out, enjoyed the sun and the coffee and relaxed a little.
It was hard to get to that point and now I need to find ways to relax when I can. Calm my mind every now and then. In the evening I tried meditation but I’m not sure about that yet. I need to do it a couple of times more. Any tips are welcome!
Have a lovely week!
