Alone Time

My thoughts are louder than the silence around me. I spend a tremendous amount of time by myself, even more so since moving to Boise. And I love it. I need my alone time—quiet quality “me” time dedicated to doing whatever I please. I value this significant relationship like none other. It never gets boring, embarrassing or lonely; it builds my self-love, awareness, creativity and dreams. Plus, it recharges my energy and willingness to give a half-ass hug and talk to people!

Most days, my alone time is the most laid-back comfortable feeling ever. Sometimes, it’s an inner battle if I’m trying hard to clear my mind or crank out an idea when I feel stuck. But hearing my own thoughts and having deep conversations with myself brings “real” insight…free from distractions, interruptions and others’ opinions.


Alone time is quality time:
