    I Believe That Everyone Needs This... Sometimes...

    Doesn't Everyone?

    I'm pretty sure everyone has times when they just need to be alone. I know I just had a day like that yesterday. I was tired of talking to people constantly and I just needed a break. It's nice to take a break on your own., catch up on a good book.

    Alone But Not Lonely

    At times I enjoy spending time alone, like today. It allows me the space to get in touch with my true feelings and just feel them without anyone trying to figure me out or inundate me with their agendas for me. Today was quiet but it opened me up to see and feel where I'm at and...

    I really need to not hear anyone. No sounds, just silence and peace. When my thoughts become too frantic and emotions run too high I just need total silence and space. I feel a need for clarity that noise can't allow. To sit in silence and lay my troubled thoughts out so I am...
