I am not very good at making time for myself. I know it's important, I go crazy without it, but still I can't seem to get out of the house and do things for myself. I used to do yoga but finances are tight and the money could go towards other things so, I quit. As the months passed I began to miss that time to myself more and more but thought I should do something more social than yoga. I do after all, spend most of my time with a two-year-old and though she never stops talking she isn't the best conversationalist. I decided I would try out a fencing club here in town. I've always kinda wanted to try fencing and this place has a very affordable beginner's class.
Tonight was supposed to be my first night but class starts at 6 and David doesn't get off until 5. Getting there was going to be a logistical nightmare that would involve me riding David's bike home, in the dark and possible rain. I know this is Portland and people do it all the time but I'm a little nervous riding on streets alone; I got hit once.
A little disappointed in myself for not trying something new I have committed myself to 3 months of Yoga instead. Tonight was my first night back and it felt great.
How do you make time for yourself? How do you choose to spend that time?
