i find i need alone time.  time to think and journal and collect my thoughts.  or maybe to organize my thoughts.  coffee with a friend doesn’t count (since i’m not alone), date nights don’t count (but i love those, too!).


for me, quality alone time might be a soak in the sub, a short nap, a drive alone to run an errand, or time to sit in my car and make a list while i look at the ocean.  after a few minutes of solitude i find i am energetic, ready to play with my boys and happier in general.


how about you?  do you need you crave solitude?  how do you find time for it?
