I just want one day. Just one. Alone on a beautiful beach or mountain. Just to take in the view, to smile at the sun, to breathe in the air. A moment to do nothing. A moment to be free of all responsibilities. A moment of me.
There is so much going on everyday. The laundry, the children, the pets. traffic, noise, work, the clicking of the keyboard. It’s exhausting.
I don’t want to hear the wishing of the washer. Or the tumbling of the dryer. I don’t want to here a door bell or even the sounds coming from the television.
Just give me a moment and I promise I will be back.
I just want to hear me. My inner thoughts. My heart beating. My chest taking in the fresh air. I want to feel the sand in my toes. I want to feel the sun on my skin without interruption.
I love everything about my life. Including all the noise. All the clutter, all the diapers, the hugs the kisses. Waking up next to the person I will spend my life with. I appreciate it all.
But just for that one day, I want to sit.
So i can reach my inner self and reflect on all the beauty that lies before me.
