How do feel about being alone?  We all have to be at one point or another.  Whether we are single, have partners or are married, true to form as we balance busy schedules or long distance relationships, there are times when you will be on your own.  This topic has been on my mind lately because my husband had to travel for business this past week and this was the first time during our entire relationship that Jersey was not here to hang out with me.  I could always count on that.  I could take him to the park or on a walk or we would just hang out on the couch watching movies.  I wasn't alone.  I was hanging with my favorite furry little man.  It took some time to absorb that part of life does not exist anymore.  All of a sudden, I had a ton of time on my hands and I wasn't quite sure how to spend it. 

Besides missing my husband and still moving through the grieving process, this is what I chose to do.  I  had dinner with family to celebrate a milestone birthday for our niece.   I drank wine and watched old movies.  I talked needlessly with a good friend for hours on the phone, I listened to music I hadn't quite put on the playlist for awhile and I went to yoga.  Looking back, it was pretty much what I used to do before B & I met.  Am I a creature of habit?  I don't' think so.  I believe I was just doing the things that bring me comfort.  I'm curious though, whatever your relationship status is, how do you spend your time alone?

Do you enjoy it?  Do you covet it?  Or do you suffer through it?  I'd love to know.

i dislike being alone, however, i've learning more and more to be alone and to be ok with it since sometimes it's inevitable. I usually spend my time alone designing and reading books. x

Hi Pati, thank you for stopping by FS and for your comment. I'm with you, I don't quite like it, I'll tolerate it but you are right, sometimes it is inevitable so you have to find things you love to do. Thank you for sharing yours. xo.
