Taking Back Solitude
Do you really spend quality time alone? Think of it in terms of solitude and not as being antisocial. Call it what you will, but the Super Achiever, Go Getter, Must Not Stop Now person inside each of us needs to rev down and reconnect with the true self at times. Do you just not feel like yourself some days? It is called BURNOUT People!!!
At least do yourself a service and let go of technology for a few hours throughout the day. That will become the next reality show. Has technology taken over your life? Call 1-800!
I enjoy the freedom and creative license of solitude as well as it gives me a much needed break to be a better person among the people I love too. It is important to have that personal balance in your life (i.e. time for yourself, time spent with family and friends, time for networking, etc.). I know this is probably a little too TMI, but solitude puts the spark back into my relationship. Oh So Grateful and Really Appreciative of What I DO HAVE in My Life!
Remember to surround yourself with people that lift you up and not down. Avoid the unnecessary drama because it is a time waster and an energy sucker for sure! If this is not possible, then set some boundaries and spend less time with these certain individuals. If it is possible, it might be time to clean the “emotional house” and sever some ties with certain individuals.
My #1 Going It Solo Love
When I vacation near a beach I love to get up early and go for a walk on the beach. So rise and shine for some much needed solitude. If you are a night owl than stay up a little later than everyone else for some much needed solitude. Enjoy IT Whatever IT Is!!!

My #2 Going It Solo Love
I enjoy taking myself out to lunch and for a little window shopping. I also enjoy going to the salon to have my hair done. I really love doing the little things for myself; just reconnect with my true self. It is nice to do what you WANT TO DO at times!
