Is it Friday already? Time flies when you’re changing diapers and breastfeeding a baby whose stomach is a bottomless pit! Today’s Five Minute Friday prompt is alone. Ok, five minutes. Here we go…
I love to be alone.
Alone to read.
Alone to write.
Alone to watch one of my guilty pleasure tv shows.
Alone with my baby.
Alone with my thoughts.
I love being alone.
I love being alone so much that I forget how much I hate being alone.
Alone with my worries.
Alone with my fears.
Alone with my doubts.
Alone to make decisions for myself and my baby.
The thing is I am energized by being alone.
I am a true introvert. A loud one, but still, an introvert. (Who says loud = extrovert, anyway?)
Even though I enjoy my alone time and I really do need it, I’m still human. And humans were created for relationship.
We are meant to live in community.
It’s a tough balance but I need to remember it’s ok to be alone for awhile but I wasn’t made to be alone in life.
