When I think about my own need for alone time it brings to mind a wonderful children’s book written by Jill Murphy called, “Fine Minutes’ Peace.” This book is about a mother elephant’s quest to find her five minutes of peace……….
I can completely relate! There are so many times when all I really want are a few minutes to unwind. I can think of numerous activities I can do during those moments that would help me unwind, such as:
- Riding my stationary bicycle
- Taking a long, warm bath
Ah, to have those moments to steal away from life and escape! Often we fantasize about the escapes more than we put them into practice.
Today, 259 days ’til 40, I will remain on a diligent quest for five minutes’ peace.
