Spending time alone
Solitude. We’re living in a rush, rush world. There’s always something to be done, the “to do” lists get enormous day after day, and we get slowly mad without even stop for breathing. Or look at the landscape for 5 minutes.
You see, nowadays we are measuring our success in terms of accomplishment. So, we push ourselves harder and harder, because stopping equals to failing, and nobody wants to fail, right?
As it looks like that at a first glimpse, truth is when we think about it deeply, we get that sometimes being in a rush 7 days per week, 24 hours per day, can drive us crazy. And less productive, for sure.
We are human beings, so it’s in our nature to stop for thinking. Or to review the day, or just to be with ourselves realizing what we’re feeling about our life and the things we’re doing. And that is totally fine. It isn’t laziness. It’s a well spent time to get even more productive on our tasks and in our life on a daily basis (i’m not talking about procrastinating, okay?).
We push ourselves harder and harder, because stopping equals to failing, and nobody wants to fail, right?
This may sound hard, i know, because there are always someone pushing us harder or calling to know if we’ve already done something, or if we’re already on our way to somewhere. But, having “my time” is a way to get our minds clear and to get even more productive, trust me. That’s why it’s so important.
I’ve always been a person who needs “me time”. Even if i love being with other people, i love solitude as well. When i’m alone with myself, i get more creative and want to do more and better. It’s like a charge of batteries.
Truth to be told, on the day we took these pics, i was feeling a bit overwhelmed. It was such a busy day, that all i wanted was to stop and take a breath.
So, when we finished shooting, we just stand there, in silence. We’re both lost in our souls and that moment calmed me down. I felt way better after just stopping for 15 minutes. And yes, you may say 15 minutes is a lot of time to be doing nothing. It possible is, but if it makes me happier and better, why not?
I mean, we don’t have to fit in a crazy routine just because someone thinks we shouldn’t have a “me time”. We all have that right, and one should find a personal routine that fits perfectly. Not a crazy one that just stops when we get to bed (and don’t have insomnias).
