Reasons to Embrace Alone Seasons

We, who are so schooled in the art of listening to the voices of others, can often hear our own voice only when we are alone. . . For many women, the first choice, then, is to give ourselves the necessary time and space in which to renew our acquaintance with our lost voice, to learn to recognize it, and to rejoice as we hear it express our truth. ―Florence Falk

Embrace The Seasons That Require You To Be Alone

Lose not the advantage of solitude, and the society of thyself.–Thomas Browne

Solitude is the perfect time to connect with yourself. All outside voices are removed and you are alone to explore, to create, to heal, to be the amazing person you are without any distractions. When you are alone, you’re not worried about the opinions of others. When you are alone you can be creative, pursue your passions and take time to map out your next steps in life.

When I was younger I never wanted to leave any space in my life. I wanted to fill every moment up. But with time alone comes focus, comes a period to look back at what really matters and a time to reflect on all the good.

In the seasons that require you to be alone, you are able to evaluate your current path and gather the strength to change directions. If you find yourself alone, stay there a while. Don’t get busy and try to jump into the next thing. Your true direction and desires are often revealed to you in the time that you spend alone.

– Mellissa

Aloneness is an opportunity, a state brimming with potentiality, with resources for renewed life…In the space of aloneness–and perhaps only there–a woman is free to admit and act o her own desires. – Florence Falk
