how to be alone.

in You

good late morning lovelies…

spent the other day with my dear friend in cincinnatti. we explored ikea, walked about the city, sipped coffee in a tucked away building with stain-glass windows, and shopped our little hearts out…contemplating if there is value in designer or not. I think we decided that we were just too northern, and stuck in our earthy-simple ways to be donning Chanel and Vuitton anytime soon. we had a wonderful time anyway.

saw this little film in my newsfeed this morning…i really liked it. i value time being alone…it used to be hard, now it’s needed and helps me breathe…

Love this video and its message. I’m an artist and by profession and temperament I spend a lot of time alone. I learned a long time ago that I don’t require a lot of people around me to be happy.
At this time of my life, with my children grown and married, I enjoy having the time I need to do my art. My husband works quite a bit so I have more time than most spouses. I have no problem with going to lunch or dinner by myself or the movies or taking day trips. I’ve taken week long vacations by myself and reveled in my anonymity. I’m comfortable in my own skin and have much to make my days full and enjoyable. Do I ever get lonely? Not very often. There is a great difference between being alone and being lonely.

I enjoyed this video. I don’t know if this is normal or not, but I enjoy being alone. :) I do love people, but sometimes, I am content with stillness and quietness.

Years ago, I wouldn’t do anything by myself. Today is a new day. I’ll hope in the car and go anywhere by myself and be okay doing it.

Thanks for sharing!

I love that video and everything that she is saying. I’ve spent time alone and time attached, and I can say that the time alone really stretched me (and continues to stretch me). I think that if I weren’t so busy with work and raising my son, it would bother me more and I would have to learn how to be alone and okay with myself.

Although in Philadelphia for about a year and a half, I was really alone like that and found so much time to get to know the city and myself. I enjoyed it.
