Solitude can be scary, it can be exhilarating. It can lift us up or drown us. I personally don’t mind being alone. I am comfortable there. Granted, I do like hanging out with friends, but I’m turning into a homebody and I’m cool with that. In a house with 2 kids, a husband and 2 dogs, life gets loud. Very loud. When it gets quiet, it’s very quiet, and I cherish those moments. It allows me to slow down and reconnect. To think about things, who I am, what I want and what I have. For me, solitude is a chance to regroup and recharge so I can deal with all the loud my life offers.
