Sometimes you just need a time out. Kinda reminiscent of when you used to get in trouble as a kid and were sent to your room. Personally, those moments in the quiet, away from it all, were necessary for me to calm down and find that voice within. Whether at the time I wanted to admit it or not.
A couple days ago I needed exactly that– a time out. Without my parents’ instruction I read, slept, lounged, spent some time in the sun, and became very good friends with this bench by the water.
