In My Own Words...Being Alone

I have to admit, I truly enjoy being alone. I probably like being alone more than most people. But when I'm alone I can relax. I can think. I can breathe.

Being alone gives me the opportunity to put things in perspective. Assess what I need.

The older I get, the more I enjoy my time with myself. The more I find peace in the silence.

When I'm alone I reflect on a lot of things. Decisions I've made (good and bad), where I am in my life, if my life is where I want it to be, and what I want to do in my life.

It's also my time to rest. Rest my body. Rest my mind. Rest my soul.

From the outside looking in some people might assume that I'm bored (or boring). But, that is so far from the truth. What some may call boring I call stress free. My 'Alone Zone' is a 'Drama-Free Zone'.

Whether 'my time' is a 15 minute hot bath, or a 48 hour sabbatical in the bedroom, its something that is mine that can not be taken away from me. Its mine to think about whatever I wish, be bothered with whatever I want (or not), and rejuvenate from the life's wear and tear.

My gift to myself. My 'Calgon' moment for me to get 'taken away.'


  1. Hey Valerie, 'alone time' is defintely a must. As I get older I too crave that space where there is stillness, no tv, or chattering needing to make room for my creativity and being still - which is essential for our health and well-being. Great to be on your blog, looking forward to reading more of your posts.
