Seriously, is there anything more tempting than that of a private gate or a sign that reads “Do not Disturb?” Taking time off from the blog has sort of made me feel like I have gone behind some gate or undercover, sporting dark glasses and an Hermes foulard on my head.
I must admit that seeing a sign that reads “private” on a gate or a road is tempting. Do you ever take time out to spend time alone and in private. Please tell me that is a yes. It has become more challenging to find undisturbed time alone whereas in past generations, one could go missing fairly easy. I remember as a child, I announced that I was running away and my Mother packed me a lunch. Permission for private time is like taking a mini time out or vacation away from life and all the to do list.
I thought this was a clever and cheeky idea . I think as a parent or newlywed, a “do not disturb” would make a great gift. We all need personal chargers to plug in and feel like we are 100%, right?
A sign like this for a man cave would be perfect for keeping out unwanted guests.
Tell me, do signs that read -“keep out” – “off limits” tempt you as much as they do I? I’ve been in sort of a private mode this summer and finding lots of joy in spending time to refuel my reserved side.
I do hope that this post will serve as permission to take a little time out. Go to a spot where no one knows your name or to a quiet garden and think about your secrets and feel charged and ready to take on the world. It’s like opening a gate to another side of life.
