My transition from cluttered to simple living.

Have you ever had...

...a "me" day?  A "me" day is a day that you choose to isolate yourself from the needs and news and wants of other people.  It is a day that you choose as yours...a day that will be spent recuperating and licking the wounds that life has inflicted upon you.  It is a holiday of sorts...a "staycation".

How you spend a "me" day is your choice.  You can wile away the day lying in bed with a good book.  You can sit in front of the computer screen or television.  You can choose to answer the phone...or not.  You can paint...or knit...or garden...or not.

A "me" day is not governed by other people's expectations. 

I am writing this at 11:00.  I am still in my PJ's.  I have read a few dozen blog posts, and I am preparing to finish a painting that I started too long ago.  I cannot do much about the hand that life deals me or my family, but what I can do is nurture this bruised soul of mine.

Today is my "me" day.


  1. Good for you! Everybody needs a day like this now and then. And to get away from one's expectations, those we really have and those we imagine (that's something I do a lot)... well, mental health depends on "me" days, Wendy! Right on, sister!

  2. Well, you just nurtured your soul and I hope it is good.
    I like days when I'm by myself. It seems weird when you don't talk or hear anybody talk all day!
