Hi peeps,buddies and my fellow bloggers.
There have just been a lot of exciting things going on lately in my life, which I will probably share with you guys. Have you ever had one of those days to spend time alone and think about the things in life?
Today, I wanted to discuss something that has been on my heart and there is a lot of value in spending time with other people but been alone is still optimistic.
My friends may or may not agree, but I would personally consider myself to be introvert because I want to be alone. Funny decisions.
But as I thought about being alone, I began to notice a sense of Fear and anxiety growing inside of me. Am no longer a kid, I’ve grown to be afraid of being alone.
Someone can be alone in various ways-
Like sitting alone inside the room.
Standing close to the mirror without looking like you have something to do.
Thinking and meditating about something meaningful(yoga).
Going out to the river bank to throw stones.
Sitting under the tree at midnight thinking.
Whatever it is, Loneliness, especially among our generation, is starting to look like a really bad thing. A thing that must be avoided at all times, or else everybody will think of you as some sort of social misfit.
Consider the Transcendentalists, nemophilist, Romantics, Jesuits, and Monks! These guys would go on lonely retreats to mountains, lakes, forests, deserts, and temples just to meditate, to get away from the hustle of everyday life.
Being alone isn’t something so bad, there are some true pleasures of being alone.
You start realizing the beauty in everything, in nature, in your space, in other people, and (perhaps most importantly) in yourself.
Enjoy spending some time resting and relaxing, even if it happens to only be for a couple minutes or an hour.
Spending time alone is about “be at peace with yourself and having Love for yourself a bit”
As you spend time alone always have two things in mind
“”””””’BE HAPPY SPENDING TIME ALONE”””””
Whats your own idea about spending time alone?
