My relationship with my bathroom
Looking back, I've always had a unique relationship with my bathroom. I recalled hiding in the bathroom to study for exams when I was living with my aunt and half a dozen of cousins through secondary school. That was the only place in the condominium we shared where I get time alone to study without distractions and imposing on the others.
The bathroom has been my sanctuary. With all the different roles and responsibilities, I especially crave for time alone. The bathroom is the easiest escape for me. It is where I now find time for myself soaking in the bathtub over a glass of wine, favorite music playing off my iPod and browsing through a book or magazine.
I am glad I no longer go through nights throwing up over the toilet bowl from too much alcohol. My relationship with my bathroom reflects the state of mind I am in and the journey of my life. Nowadays, I occasionally practice yoga poses and dance to my favorite songs in my bathroom. I am thankful where life leads me and I am thankful for my bathroom.
