Time Out For Myself

I spend 70% of my time either working or volunteering or doing things for others and last weekend I took time out to have some time for ME. To go to my special place which is a tropical garden you are suppose to make a gold coin donation when you enter and I didn’t have any gold coins left so went for a bit of a drive around instead. It got me thinking about how much do we actually explore our own back yards? I went to one part of our city that I hadn’t been to before and it was an industrial area, thankfully it was the weekend so I wasn’t annoying anyone with my Nana driving and taking everything in. It was good just taking in the sights and noticing some things that I wouldn’t of if I hadn’t of taken the time. We have some massive boats, ferries, yachts in our city that are having work done on them and I had no idea that we could cater such huge launches they would have to be worth a couple of million alone.

I am trying to come up with things to get me out and all part of a self care plan to ensure that I get down time from work and volunteering. I have just added this to my list along with the tropical gardens – I have a map of the city and I am going to work my way through it by either driving, walking and eventually maybe cycling (if I can find a bike) my way around the city. While I do this I am hoping to find things that are interesting, magical or just plan beautiful to practice my photography skills on.

Living life sober, raw and real is the best gift I gave myself and I know I wouldn’t be living the life I am now and planning things like the above if I wasn’t.

  1. Hi FG. That sounds like a lot of fun. I love exploring new areas especially by walking around. You pick up on so much that you miss by being in a car. Now you’ve got me all in the exploring mode and I’ve got to start this silly thing called worky work…ughh. Maybe this weekend. Sending hugs my friend🤗

  2. Hi! I’m so happy to hear that you are taking time for yourself. It is so incredibly important, but can be equally as hard. Just like you said, getting lost in work and doing things for everyone else, it’s easy to forget what WE NEED as individuals. Sending my best wishes. 🙂

    1. Hi Amy, it really is difficult and even though I mentally know that I must do it more often I seriously struggle with finding the time. Thank you for the best wishes and sending them straight back xox
