    • I start going for walks in areas I’m not too familiar with and I try to read some books that really appeal to me.  I also have a box of old letters that I reread every few years.  I’ve tried to keep a letter or a card from every person who has been very important to me through the years-plus notes I’ve received that make me feel good like when I returned a lost dog, made chili for a sick neighbor etc.

      I also reread my “Peanuts” comic books and watch old movies.

    • Anne, I love what you do!  

      Right now I am only me and so I don’t have need to reconnect with myself, and actually being a wife didn’t change my self identity habits. He was a workaholic so I had plenty of time to remain connected to my “me“.  

      My first marriage was different of course because I had children and a husband that was a family man. I never felt disconnected from myself though. I had quiet evenings of reading or writing letters or listening to music with headphones, my “me” times.

    • I tend to go for long walks when I need to find “me“.  That way I can talk to myself, talk to God, laugh, scream, swear, whatever I need to do to work things out.

    • It depends. Sometimes I dont realize I NEED to reconnect that way until I pick up the guitar that gets ignored for too long. Or sometimes, artwork, or take pics of something that is significant to me as I think of things needed to be thought about.
      Walk, exercise, write, find music that takes me deep into myself to reclaim something [if that makes sense] or to just soothe the soul. I could use some of that now actually. Not to say Im down etc. Im not. I just think it’s wise to stay in tune with one’s self deep down, especially when trying to make life decisions or significant moves, etc.
      Hope that answers your question. Have a very nice day. :}
