spend time with yourself

the original mood setter

there are times and days when i feel like spending time all by myself.

sometimes, it would be in a remote neighborhood mall, with my laptop and my favorite on-the-go mocha latte at hand, and i would surf for hours satorialist's blog to understand what true style means.

other times, i would spend a good hour or so at the gym working on the areas that need to be toned (alert : tummy) and just bask in the steam room to relax.

also many times, i would go over to the bakery at ikano to eat the usual (flying chicken sandwich + orange juice on the rocks) and read cover-to-cover the latest details mag.

i personally feel that at those times, there is feeling of peace which i love. it's the spending time to reflect, to be at ease with your self, which i feel makes me feel love with living.

because i know, if you don't like spending with yourself, then who would?

(ps : marvin gaye crooning at the background makes me wish i was a singer...)

I do that sometimes too. However, when my frens find out, they sympathise with me, which to me is totally wierd. They can't comprehend how I'm able to spend a Saturday having lunch by myself, read a book or simply wander the malls.

Yes, solitude is sublime. The older I get, the more I seek it. We can each only be our own best friends.

I love spending time with myself too. To me, being alone doesn't mean that one is lonely.

"if you don't like spending with yourself, then who would?"

I couldn't agree more. Sometimes there is nothing better than a quiet day spent simply in the company of our own thoughts.

che'fara : i love sleeping. can relate to you on that. ;)

ferr : all i have to say to your friends is to have them to give it a try. i think once they do, they will realise how fantastic it really is.

blabarella aka queen of egypt : i love the fact you used the word sublime. it conjures up images of sweet / sour iced lime juice. ;)

adek : exactly. its about being comfortable in your own skin, that's the best.

sempre libera : i am enjoying one as we speak! :) btw, have i ever told you how impressed i am with your commitment towards running? the closest i am to that is last week terry fox run. thought i would have passed out, but i survived (hooray!) and it was really worth it.

i love spending time with myself too. sometimes you need to have time for yourself. sometimes, i would spend my time at my own house alone, watching tv, shopping for groceries, cooked and eat or reading by myself when my husband has classes since i'm staying with my in-laws.
