As you know, this past weekend I was in Indianapolis for Influence.
I opted not to go to every session. Instead I carved out lots of time for me.
I spent quiet hours in my hotel room writing.
I wandered the huge mall that was attached to the hotel by myself.
I stopped in Aveda to buy some hairspray and was greeted by the saleslady who said they were giving free massages and would I like one? Yes, please.
I went out to dinner with a small group of friends, laughed, shared stories, ate two small dessert and had the best time.
I watched late night TLC in a big bed.
I slept eight – ten hours every night, without any interruptions of baby cries.
I don’t travel alone as much as I used to with my old job, which made me appreciate the quiet me time even more.
That said, on Sunday, there was nothing like reuniting with my sweet kids and hubby.
Today I leave for a work conference – back to back travel and me time.
I am looking forward to a few more quiet hours at night before getting back into the swing of things on Friday.
Do you ever get away for some me time?
