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?

    1. I hear you. πŸ™‚ It’s not easy. But small things done with joy are much better than doing nothing at all. Your blogs are amazing and you will be surprised how much people reading your blog were inspired by you and your creativity. Keep up the good work. πŸ™‚


  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! πŸ™‚ We have the same likes ..blogging is very new to me and haven’t really started since last December. Since then I found a different world where bloggers share and I’m loving it. I just wish I can spend more time reading and making blogs. I work full time in the hospital together with my husband Kris and only get to post and enjoy my artistic side on our days off. How about you? where do you get your inspiration from? πŸ™‚ Your posts and Poems are absolutely amazing.

      1. Bless you for your work in the Healthcare System. Take care and stay safe!
        I find inspiration in the little everyday things around me as well as my photos that I take all the time. Other bloggers give me inspiration from time to time as well.
        Enjoy your blogging. It is a great community of supportive people!
