Making some time to just be alone...

because sometimes I need to retreat from the world in order to relax and reflect

because I can not give what I don't have to give

because I need the healing waters to renew my body, mind, and emotions

because sometimes I need to hear the whisper of my own soul, the beating of my own heart, the longings of my own body

because loving myself is not selfish; it's survival

because every woman is entitled to her own sanctuary...wherever it might be.

AAAHHHHH..... You ARE letting it in, The joy ,the time to nurture your own soul. That is being selfish in the most important way. We cannot share what we don:t have. If we all could fast forward to the end of this life, most of what we worry and fret about would be forgotten.We would spend more time laughing.. finding joy and abundance in all the little things that are true gems. The two questions the dying ask most often are:
1. Am I loved?
2.Did I love well?
and I for one feel that includes ones self.... self love. Its where it begins.....

Lovely photos. I love the feeling of lying back in the water and feeling my hair swish all around me. Photo number three perfectly captures that bliss.

Thanks for the comments on my blog too.
