I am an introvert – I get my nourishment from being alone. I love being with friends and going to parties, but for me to thrive in who and what I am, I need my alone time. And, I love being alone with the trees because if you haven’t noticed yet, I LOVE trees!
(As a side note, many dictionaries describe, solitude, as feelings of loneliness. I totally disagree! How can you be lonely when finding the nourishment from within yourself?)
Even if you are not an introvert there is much that can be of benefit to having some time to contemplate in solitude. That inner source of your being, your higher self, sub conscious what ever you what to call it, it likes to have its own personal time to chat with you. Chat with it, listen and trust, get inspiration.
Take that time to chat with your inner being. Learn to love solitude, for there is the true nature of your being.
Find some time daily, weekly, monthly to have a little time to cultivate your inner being with solitude. I do this on a daily basis
~Visit your favorite park, (yes, I am American so I have a deep love for parks - it’s like it is bred into us)
~Go to the beach and watch the waves roll in
~Find a favorite room in your house that is quiet – sit and enjoy
~Take a bath
~Ride a bike ride
~Go for a walk
~Do some breathing exercises
Yes, all of these things can be done with others, but the idea here is to enjoy your solitude.
“When I nourish my solitude, I continue to trust my inner voice.”
“Solitude is a beneficial way for me to thrive in life.”
“With solitude, I am invigorated.”
