Why Alone Time is Good for the Soul
As I write this, I'm by myself. It's 1:19 AM and I am enjoying every minute of it. I have my coffee, pen, and paper (and sometimes a good book), which is all I usually want when I just need some moments to myself.
I love being able to feel like the world is holding still. It gives me some inner peace. Even though I know the Earth is still spinning on its axis, I can pretend that it's going to leave me alone until morning.
Sometimes I feel like I need a vacation from my own life. I absolutely love my life; I'm more than happy with my wife, family, friends, and career. Being able to be alone for a certain amount of time gives me the mental and emotional retreat to recharge my batteries and love them all even more.
