Spending Time Alone

Photo: Aztech New Media

I've learned how to take care of my inner needs by spending more time alone, quietly reading and just generally leaving more unscheduled time for myself. I've discovered that if I don't take time for myself, I start to feel empty and imbalanced. I am no longer a whole person. How much time do you spend alone a day? (Alexandra Stoddard, The Art of the Possible, p. 236)

I am now receptive to the idea that .. sometimes people do things that have nothing to do with what I have done! (Iyanla Vanzant, Until Today! 13 May)

You will do foolish things, but do them with enthusiasm. (Collette in The Art of the Possible by Alexandra Stoddard, p. 233)

While we die early because of obesity-related disease, others die early from malnutrition and starvation. (Food For Thought, 27 May)

When you believe you know everything, you will never acquire understanding. (Iyanla Vanzant, Until Today! 4 May)

Today, I will give myself permission to set the limits I want and need to set in my life. (Melody Beattie, The Language of Letting Go, 17 May)
