I'll just go ahead and say it...I use to have a huge problem with being alone. Sometimes I still dislike it, but since I've grown up (some) and I spend so much of my time surrounded by people, I thoroughly enjoy my alone time now. But it wasn't always like that.
When I think about it now, it's silly. There are so many things that we have to do alone....like go to the bathroom, go to the doctor, surgery, sometimes shopping, sleeping, sometimes driving, etc. So why is it that it seems so daunting to some (including past me)?
Instead of trying to dissect this, because that's probably something way too involved and would probably make anyone who reads this blog (including myself) want to stop (again, including myself). So instead, I decided to take another approach. Why not make a positive list of fun things that include being by yourself?? Besides being more optimistic, this (I think, at least) be a fun way to make a list to carry out. Things to do all by myself. A list that I need to keep close and remember to do every once and awhile to keep myself refreshed and happy.
List 32: Fun things to do by yourself.
ride your bike
take yourself to lunch
go to the gym
go to the bookstore or library and find something new
go for a walk
go out for coffee and people watch
shop (window or actual)
cook a new meal
watch a movie (either out or at home in your pjs)
go out for a drink
go to the park (hang out, play a game solo, people watch, feed the birds, climb a tree...)
go on a drive and get lost
And watch this video, because it's amazing and you'll be glad you did.
Your turn. Can't wait to see everyone else's lists!
