SOMETHING TO THINK ABOUT:

“SOLITUDE”

Solitude is such a blessing!  Everyone needs time alone.  Often we are fearful to time alone, because there is no one for us to encounter but ourselves.  How comforting it is to go to ourselves!  How much like returning home to an old friend or lover after having been away too long visiting places that felt foreign and unfamiliar.

Our solitude is one of the pleasures that only we can arrange.  It is up to us too see that we regenerate, through our time, with ourselves.  We have the right, and we have the power.  If we do not model respect for our own need for solitude, our children will never learn that they deserve their time alone.

  • – Let me remember that I have the right to create a space of solitude for myself, if only to enjoy the soothing sound of running water in my own bathtub.
