how to be alone



i'm absolutely smitten with this video, adapted from the poem "how to be alone" by tanya davis. i'm a big fan of alone time - solo vacations, dinner reservations for one, and quiet walks through museums. there's something really rejuvenating about being with yourself, your thoughts, your fears, your dreams. what do you prefer to do alone?

This is lovely! I agree, I love when my husband is gone on business and I have the house to myself. I can listen to whatever I want, eat whatever I feel like eating, operate on my own schedule. I love my husband, but I love my alone time too!

This is simply darling! I think the biggest challenge for me in alone time is just sitting still - I too often designate it as my "get stuff done" time, but it's nice just to be able to escape too!

Alone time is an absolute necessity for me. I don't often get it due to having 2 small kids, but I try to take some times in the evenings before bed to read, be alone with my thoughts, read blogs, drink a bit of wine... if I don't get this time, I get crabby and sometimes depressed.

This is an awesome video and message. I definitely need my quiet/self time and can appreciate what a great reminder this video is regarding the importance and beauty of such moments.

i only enjoy short amounts of time alone. in fact, i sometimes rather hang out with someone i dont even like than to be by myself. this video is inspiring though. who knows ... maybe i can learn to be alone more.
