Why Alone Time is Good for the Soul

Time alone gives people the chance to self-reflect, relax, and not worry about the world around them.

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.
