Time for Me Thursday - Sanctuary

Thursday is here! Where is this summer running off to and why is it in such a hurry? Today's Time for Me Thursday is all about creating a sanctuary for yourself. As a mom and as someone who seems to be under constant high stress lately, I quickly realized that I needed a quiet place where I could just go and relax, someplace safe to unwind.

So, meet my! It's covered with one of my favorite quilts and comfy pillows. The colors are soothing and calming and for me, it's a haven where I can curl up and read or write or when the need is there, take a nap. Now, usually the stand is not covered with a million bottles but this was the only picture I could find. Usually, it holds a bottle of water, a book and that pretty little lamp there. From time to time a teddy bear or another friend may pop in for a visit, as well.


Women these days seem to be trying to do it all. We work. We take care of our children. We run our houses. We care for our houses. Now, I know that sounds as if men don't do diddly squat, but I think y'all know what I mean. We spend every day trying to be SuperWoman or Wonder Woman or some other mythical figure and it's stressful and it's plain exhausting. Take some time out today to create your own sanctuary, your own oasis.

Once upon a time, my sanctuary was my basement office. It wasn't much, but it was mine. Nowadays, I have the whole house to myself and I am slowly rebuilding my old office. I have wired fresh outlets and I have a network cable so I can hook into a hardline to my router if need be. I haven't decided what I will do with the space when I am finished with it, and I work on it sporadically. One day I will finish it and find a use for it.
