Sonia Cullington say's "TIME OUT..."

WOW-WordsOfWisdom of the week - " The time to RELAX is when you don't have time for it..." - Sydney J Harris, US Journalist

TIME OUT - Time out is compulsory. You don't require anything more than your own company. We are constantly doing things for others, so how about doing something special for yourself? Do you tell yourself, "I don't have the time...", "I couldn't possibly...", "I'd feel so guilty...?" Here's what WOW say's: ...'Make the TIME..YOU absolutely can & no YOU won't feel guilty!!!' YOU don't neglect your family, friends, lovers, work, pets, colleagues and a million and one other things, so why would YOU neglect yourself? Remember YOU are just as important as everyone else on that list and YOU can't give to the best of your ability if YOU never take TIME OUT for yourself...be a bit selfish from TIME to TIME...
Time Out for me means doing things that I want to do for myself. I don't need permission from anyone, I don't have to impress anybody, I'm self reliant and I don't even need an obvious result from it.
Sometimes I go to the cinema by myself, I love the cinema and it's a great way to catch up on the films I want to see,  also one day I fancied French food, I jumped in my car and drove to Cambridge as I knew there was a good restaurant there, whilst walking around the beautiful streets soaking up the atmosphere, visiting the museums, hearing different lanuages etc I changed my mind, I thought to myself pick a country by the accents I hear, Italian? Portugeuse? I chose Spanish as my hair was gelled back and I felt like a Senorita!  Best Tapas I ever had...some people say to me that these are strange things to do,  the comments didn't bother me. I realised that I couldn't rely on people to be free when it suited me. (who has a conversation while watching a movie or with a mouth full of food anyway? hahahaha) Other days I might relax lying on my bed and read a book or I will go to a book shop and spend hours in there and sometimes I just listen to music.
The great thing about TIME OUT is that it can be anything YOU want it to be...
TIME OUT refreshes YOU, so YOU can have more energy for others, personally it helps me recharge my batteries and put me in a better frame of mind...When I am in good space and feel nourished and enriched, I am then in a position to help and nourish and enrich other people's lives...
So if you want to START NOW FEEL WOW! Open your diary and find a slot and write "MEETING WITH ME!" in the space, use that time to do something for yourself!
What did  MY diary page say today - it said, Sonia  me time yoga 10.30am then Sonia me time bike shop
So take your TIME OUT, once a day? once a week? or once a month? It really dosen't matter. What does matter is that YOU take the time for yourself. Enjoy, enjoy, enjoy....
Would love to hear people's comments on TIME OUT
