Just To...being

I like to spend time by myself.  I guess its due to the many number of years that I have been by myself and I have gotten used to hearing myself think.  I like the peacefulness of just being still.  sometimes I go for a walk and there is a park not far from me and there is hardly anybody there and its even better I think because I get to enjoy the beauty of the sun setting even more.  Its unbelievable how when I was younger I didn't realize just how wonderful being quiet can be.  I asked ALOT of questions, but now I seek it and when I get my time to myself (which I humbly call "Lily's Quiet Time") I dream, read, listen to music or just let my mind wander.  Its wonderful.  It makes and helps me appreciate being alone.

It sure does help with the rejuvenating of the mind. I like to write down my ideas and dreams, its good ground to plan my life and it helps me focus on what I can do for others as well. Thanks for the comment jrhanold. I'm glad you feel the same.

I can certainly relate! I have found having alone time to be relaxing and rejuvenating!
