    Taking time for me
    Its time I let the world know
    Let my love flow
    By takin time out for me

    Honestly
    I didn't even know
    I needed to take this time
    Out to grow
    Untold
    Secrets and wishes
    In my own lil world
    Unfold
    I'm stressed
    Undressed
    Need'n to be caressed
    But I really just need
    To take time out for me

    I'm in love and its my time
    To shine
    To bask in this
    scrumptious
    Bliss
    So genuine
    I don't want to miss a beat
    It feels so good
    To be loved
    What wonderful treat
    Even with all this that I need
    Is needing to take time out
    For me

    My finances are in great shape
    The best they've ever been
    To date
    I have money in my pocket
    Money in the bank
    Bills all paid
    Plans being made
    What a relief
    That things have changed
    Being more mature
    I'm able to see things more
    I realized the importance
    Of these things
    By tending to my needs
    Simply, by taking time out
    Just for me

    Career, finance
    friendships, and romance
    I am grateful now
    I have found balance
    But even still
    Its work
    To maitain my objectivity
    That's why I gotta take time out
    Just for me
    Time to be Free
    Free2b Me...

    The path is one of conscious choice that we all have opportunities to walk on. It took me a long time stumbling around with no direction and no purpose (I think was the Commodors lol) til I decided that this was the time to walk this path. It was a conscious choice. Thanxx 4 stoppin by;)

    you are very welcome....part of me taking time out, is making time to write in my journal. My journal is my life story....it knows me so well, and is my dearest possession. Its so amazing to look back at my life...my feelings, thoughts, and evolution. Truly beautiful.

    It is half the battle. It is also just as much work to being mindful of your blessings. Sometimes we 4get.
