New beginnings and thoughts on being alone



Hey you!

Thanks for stepping by. While you're here, please take a moment to like my Facebook-page as well, for healthy information and inspiration 

So, after some recent events, I'm living by myself now. I'm obviously a little sad and it was not nice to say goodbye and all, but I'm trying my best to focus on the positives.
I'm not a big fan of living alone, but I'll have to remind myself of the fact that before, that's all I knew of, right? As much as I love living with others, I can't be dependent on being together with someone 24/7, I'm a grown woman and I can take care of myself. ;D so I'll be OK. :)

Now I have so much time to focus on myself, and that's exactly what I'll do! I've already made some fun plans with friends and pampered myself with facials, home workouts, blasting my favourite music, good food and Netflix (all the series others can't stand haha).

This day inspired me to write a little post on being independent. Especially for people in a steady relationship it can become so normal to live together that it's impossible to even spend a weekend apart. If you're that person, you're the one who needs to be alone the most! You'll have to be alone one day in the future no matter what, life won't always work out exactly the way you want it to, and then you're gonna have to know how to be alone. It's not as bad as you think! It's actually nice, relaxing, healthy and therapeutic, even.

It is a great chance for you to practice some healthy self-love, pamper yourself, listen to yourself, read, study and focus on bettering yourself. Listen to your favourite music as loud as you want (well, as long as the neighbours are fine with it :D) and just have fun!

It's important not to fear solitude. Even the kind that's not by your own choice. Take the time as a test - learn new skills, like trying new recipes (something I'm excited to do!), meditate, work out, clean the house, organize and get rid of old or unused stuff (feels so good) and just do what you want.

If you don't like being with you, how can you expect others to?

Loneliness expresses the pain of being alone and solitude expresses the glory of being alone.

Solitude is independence.
