Run far, Run wide for some ALONE time!

Run far, run wide for some alone time!

Yes, God speaks through other people but he also needs space to be heard when he is speaking directly to you.
Constant dealings with other people, be it husbands, kids, coworkers, our parents or church members, not to mention their demands, expectations and agenda is on your you – ness and can sometimes make it difficult to distinguish what you really feel and think from what has been dumped into your subconscious.

Find some daily alone time to clear and De – clutter your mind, even if it is only for 20 mins.

The solitude itself is restorative and the revelation that comes from it is affirming.
It re charges your focus and ignites your creative abilities.

  1. Indeed Anthonia, I love my mee-ness as I often refer to my alone time. First thing in the morning before my household arises or after everyone in is asleep, and sometimes when I go for a run works best for me.

    This is the time where I meditate on scripture, evaluate my personal goals, or sometimes I just stay still and listen to my own heartbeat.

    I think it as moms ,’mee-ness is important cause it recharges our batteries, and thereby enabling us function in our manyyyyy roles.


    • Most Def! Miggie – we play “manyyyyy” roles, wear many caps and always ready to make things work for people around us. So, how much more for ourselves. So I do agree with you and totally encouraged by your statement….

      ” I just stay still and listen to my own heartbeat” – really love that! and that’s what I do on those me-time train rides to NY! I listen to my own heart-beat…’amidst all that’s happening around me on board.


  2. Well said Miggie. My alone time is very early in the morning and in the evening, before I retire for the day, and its fondly called “Me Time” – and to make it seem appropriate and not like a life of solitude or loneliness my children calls it “Anthonia’sTime” with a comforting notion indicating that – Yeah! Mom you need it, we all know you really need it! – And really! this always gives me assurance that It is “totally” okay to have my “me time” without feelings of guilt that I’m shutting my family out.

    So, in today’s constantly connected world, finding “alone time” has become a lost art. And if you are not careful, people around you tends to equate a desire for alone time or solitude with people who are lonely, sad, or have antisocial tendencies.

    But seeking solitude can actually be quite healthy. In fact, there are many physical and psychological benefits to spending time alone.

    Alone time allows you to reboot your brain and unwind, improve concentration and increase productivity, gives you an opportunity to discover yourself and find your own voice, provides time for you to think deeply, helps you work through problems more effectively and can also enhance the quality of your relationships with others and connect one-one-one with God – by meditating and hearing from Him.

    Thanks Miggie!
