Solace in my Solitude

Lately I’ve been spending a lot of time alone. I’ve been doing things that I usually do with other

people, by myself and I have to say it’s quite refreshing. Having time to myself has made it an easier

process to reflect on the things that cloud my mind daily.

If you read my latest journal entry, you know that I was coming out of some type of creative block.

Now as I’m writing this post I realize that I was actually in shock. I was so used to pretty much never

being alone that I felt lost, lonely, sad, unmotivated, etc., I still feel these emotions sometimes but

everyday it gets better. As time went on I remembered that the point of forcing myself into solitude

was so that I could go through all those different emotions and learn how to pick myself up without

needing someone to back me.

Slowly but surely I started seeing the growth in myself. I didn’t need anyone to cheer me on, didn’t

need anyone’s opinions or comforting words to keep me motivated.

I found solace in my solitude.

In others words I found comfort inside of me. I found happiness, motivation, peace, everything I need

in me. That’s what this life is all about, that’s the ultimate goal; to be everything you need to yourself

FIRST. Everything else will fall into place.
