For the first time in a very long time, I ate lunch by myself today. Even though it was cold out, I went onto the rooftop and sat in the garden. The smell of lavender wafted on the breeze, and despite the sounds of construction and traffic in the city, I felt peaceful. It is so rare that I am alone in a place. There is always family, colleagues, commuters and even my cats scratching at the door when I have a shower! Because I seem to have so little 'spare' time, I try and spend as much as I can with my loved ones, who I unfortunately see the least out of everyone. I don't know how, but I am going to try really hard to squeeze in some 'me' time, where I am not doing anything except relaxing and reflecting. It feels good to pause.
