How To Be Alone. {Amazing Video}

“If you are at first lonely, be patient. If you’ve not been alone much, or if when you were, you weren’t okay with it, then just wait. You’ll find it’s fine to be alone once you’re embracing it.” ~ Tanya Davis


Morning is my meditation; my time to gather…to reflect…to just simply be.

I love watching the world stretch wide its arms, in order to embrace this brand new day.

Oh, and the sounds…the birds chirping their call, and the squirrels playing chase across the fence.

I love the sounds of life, waking up. I love the feeling of daylight against my face.

And when the morning sun lifts her veil to me, I watch with heart as her light dances across the outlines of this earth.

But, most of all, I love this time just being alone.

People are so afraid of being alone, but for me—I rather much enjoy it.

In this video, poet Tanya Davis carries us gently through to a place we often fear—our very own “aloneness.”

If we can learn to embrace our own solitude, we might just find a much deeper happiness within it.
