Thanksgiving – Alone

Posted in My Journey with tags , , , , , on November 27, 2009 by naturallysubmissive

Yesterday was the first time I have spent a major holiday by myself and I wasn’t sure how I would feel. The holiday is a time for families getting together and being grateful. I enjoyed the solitude, not having to rush anywhere , listening to the same repetitive tired old conversations that happen when families get together.

I grew to hate the holiday dinners growing up, there was a lot of stress in my family around the holiday times when e got together. When I was introduced to my wifes family I enjoyed them, because they actually had fun and laughed and everything seemed so serious in the home I grew.

Someone told me as we grow up we have the opportunity to create a new family for ourselves.

Touch

I went and had some bodywork done this weekend, it felt so good to relax on the table and feel someones hands on me. I am so used to being hugged in the morning and when I came home from work, I miss that now that I am on my own. How many times have I heard or read we live in a touch deprived society? Now Iunderstand why people have pets. There is something very comforting about being able to touch a living being, we all want to connect with someone. Some of the small things are so important and we can take them for granted until they are gone.
