I hear the clock tick with no panic and I reach the end of the day with no self-judgement.
At least, that is what I hope for, in life.
What you do when you find yourself alone affects everything. To simply feel what you need, to know yourself, and to reach peace inside, takes practise. But it is totally worth it and lovely to reach it.
And in the aloneness that isn’t lonely, that is where I believe I find my voice, when I follow the bunny hops of ideas and thoughts and trace them back together.
