Discovery

Good Morning All!  I wrote and posted this back in August...Kinda goes with my New Year theme :)  I know I need to write something fresh...Not sure why I cant seem too...I havent even written in my journal since before Christmas...


Lying in my bed listening to the rain drops
Wishing they would never stop

Not wanting to leave these covers
Hiding and not wanting to be discovered

Enjoying being alone
Everything else can be postponed

Taking personal quality time
Not worrying about deadlines

Completely focused on me
And what it is that I need

Actually loving me in totality
Door knocks bring me back to reality

Ignoring everyone else
Only going by my own impulse

Being alone is actually not that bad
No one to get on my nerves and make me mad

Relaxing with everyone out of reach
Listening to my own inner speech

Not depending on anyone’s guarantee
Discovering that I do really love me

Loving oneself, what better gift can we achieve?

JStar said...

Exactly Dulce!! Gotta love yourself and worry about you first and foremost...

I don't think I would ever want to be totally alone for any length of time but I do need my private time once in a while. It is when I recharge my batteries.

JStar said...

And thats exactly what I am saying here...Taking a day to myself, ignoring the door and anything that interfere's with "MY ME TIME" I have been single for quite some time now, the majority of this year but before that I was single since 2005 when the ex husband and I split up...I can tell ya, it gets lonely...Esp at night...Like the song says "If you think you are lonely now, wait until tonight girl"...Oh sooo true...

It's always good to reconnect with ones self. In order to be the best person you can possibly be you have to know who you are first. Great post!

JStar said...

Amen to that Champ :) Thanks

Aw I love this!
I agree w| what 25champ had to say.
Being alone doesn't always make you lonely, you have yourself =)

JStar said...

Of course Supastarrr :)

Gregorio Martino said...

Make sure whatever you do in life you reserve yourself some private time. What you do with it is your business but I think everyone needs a little to remain sane.

JStar said...

Great advice Gregorio!

Steve E said...

Well, I love everyone I meet, but before I could love others, I had to learn to love--and be comfortable with--myself.

Your write very well. I came here via Dulce.

I think if you can't be happy alone (I mean we simply are at times )..then how can we appreciate true freedom? I spent a great deal of time alone with just my boys after their father died)..(I'd never trade that for anything). Keep writing..don't hesitate to pull out what you have now. (btw)-your girls are so lovely!

JStar said...

:) Thanks so much Regina...Yes, being alone is not bad at all...Just at night for me because I have been married for 14 years of my short life so I am used to having someone next to me while sleeping and someone to please me when I am frisky...But making my own schedules and not having to deal with the BS of a relationship is quite nice...and yes, I am spending so much more time with my girls and we all love it :) Thanks :) My girls are my air...
