#SoCS Oct. 01, 2022 – Me

Linda’s SoCS prompt.

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “me.” Find a word that starts with “me” or use the word “me” as the theme of your post. Have fun!


It’s not selfish to think of myself sometimes.

I mean, I give my all to the world every single day.

As a wife and mother.

As a daughter/daughter-in-law.

As a sister.

As a friend.

As a teacher.

As a manager.

As a colleague.

As a writer.

As a reader.

Some days, when life allows me the luxury, I just forget about everyone and curl up with a good book and a cup of tea.

Self-care at its finest.

Sometimes we have to put ME first, otherwise we won’t have anything left in our reserves to cope with the rest of our responsibilities, and it’s taken me a long time to realise that.

    This to remember is very important, Sis! You forgot one duty, because you are also a pet carer. 😉 xx Michael

    It’s absolutely important to set aside some “me” time. You go crazy otherwise.

    A good book and a cup of tea come at the end of my day. It’s a good time. As to all the other stuff, Ritu. I don’t think you’d change any of it.

    I still can’t get my head around tea. Never have I ever… but, coffee and a good book— now you are talking.

    You time is very important – and I think you deserve it. G:)
