This is the time to assess your situation and focus on your own needs. Put yourself first today. You may be in need of some alone time to sort out your feelings, thoughts and beliefs. Find a quiet place where you can reflect and allow your mind to wander. There is great peace in the sudden silence. Meditation may lead to memories that can help you sort out the present. If you are clear with others about why you`re temporarily absent, they will understand and gain a greater understanding of you through your reflections.
