Spending time alone

When I was living in Seattle, I usually didn’t get a lot of time to myself because I would always make sure I had plans with friends.  One of the things about me is that I absolutely love my friends and they are my second family.  With my parents living in a different city, once I moved to Seattle, my friends became the ultimate support system for me.  I treasure each friendship that I have and I love the people I have chosen to surround myself with. So, in Seattle, my schedule was always packed because I loved spending one on one time with friends or in groups just catching up and seeing each person to hear about what was new in their lives. I rarely got time to myself except for those nights where I was too tired to leave my home.

Now, I have so much time to myself and it’s such an adjustment. I don’t usually have plans on the week days anymore. I come home, eat dinner and then relax after a long day at work. And then on the weekends, I finally have energy to try and get my life in order and do everything I should have tried during the week. Now that I have so much more time to myself, I need to make sure I’m making the best use of my time.

It’s weird coming to terms with the fact that my life has made a complete 180 change. I work almost double what I did in Seattle, I have more alone time than I have ever had, I don’t live in a big city but rather a beach now, I live in sun rather than rain and I’ve slowed down on traveling.

So now, I need to figure out what I want to do with all my time. Any suggestions?
