“Alone Time: This year I am noticing that I am growing more and more grateful for my time spent alone.
In most of the years past I would avoid being alone as much as I possibly could, and now that I am growing older, and growing more in my various passions, I am finding that I am gravitating toward being alone more often than I am choosing to fill my time surrounded by other people. I am turning down party invitations, choosing to stay in rather than go out, and really leaning into my time by myself.
Choosing to be more selfish with my time has allowed me to do so many things that I had been putting off for years simply because I thought I didn’t have the time. This year I have chosen to be more intentional with how I spend my time, who I spend it with, and I am saying ‘No’ more than I used to and I feel that because of this, I have grown exponentially toward being the person I want to be, and doing the things I really care about.”
