Day 6 – Time alone well needed!


I’m kind of stuck for words today.  Not really sure why.  I’ve been spending a lot of time by myself lately and have been reflecting a lot without really even trying to. Before I left for my trip, I was busy doing things everyday and never really got a chance to just be.  Now I have all the time in the world to just be.  I think it was well needed.

I woke up this morning and said ‘ewwww!’ when I looked in the mirror!  Not good to say I know, but my face was all puffy looking!  I thought it was from the glass of wine I had the night before but then remembered later on in the day that I had been crying in my sleep.  I don’t know what I was crying about but I’ve obviously still got a lot of healing to do.  Today I have pretty much kept to myself.  I walked about 2 hours down the shoreline to a beach called Coogee that a good friend recommended.  It’s been nice just being by myself.  Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE being around people, especially my two new flat mates for the next few days!  Raf and his awesome roomie Nat have taken me in!  They have been so great! Nat makes the best burritos I have ever tasted!  The messy Bondi special.

I’ve kind of forgotten lately that I truly am an introvert. You probably wouldn’t have guessed this!  I need to recharge a la solo. And that’s exactly what I’ve done the past few days, and have loved it!  Balance!

Theres no real point to this blog today, except that maybe to say it’s okay to be alone and spend some quality time by yourself.  It’s actually necessary, I believe. It’s allowing me to be able to be energetic when I’m around people, yet feel calm when I am alone.  Traveling teaches you so much.  I love it!

The sun is just starting to poke it’s way through the clouds.  I’m sitting on a rock overlooking a nearby quiet beach.  Just about to pull out my yoga mat and do some yogz on the beach.  I’ve missed my mat lately!  Life is good :)

Smile with your heart!
