#93: Solitude: Are You Getting Yours?

Man in solitude on a beach
Being alone is not time wasted. Solitude is time well spent.

Do you spend time alone? Where do you find solitude? Also, what do you do when by yourself? In this episode I pose these questions and more and encourage you to meet yourself in the quiet spaces of your mind. More importantly I share how it’s precisely in those quiet spaces in which you unlock your true yearning and wisdom.

How do you find solitude away from outside influence, in your own inner whispering, in your own radiant brilliance?

Is it in the early morning or late at night?

Furthermore, when do you meet yourself in unscheduled, unstructured, unrushed time and what do you do discover?

If you’re not spending time in solitude, I encourage you to ask why? What are you avoiding? If you’re intrigued, I encourage you to start simple in some of the following ways:

  • Get up 15 minutes earlier
  • Write 2-3 pages in your journal every day
  • Get outside and look at the sky for 5-10 minutes
  • Take a walk without extra entertainment

Solitude is unmatched. Quiet can be deafening. Time alone is time well spent.

 

Mentions and More

It doesn’t interest me where or what or with whom you have studied. I want to know what sustains you from the inside when all else falls away.

I want to know if you can be alone  with yourself and if you truly like the company you keep in the empty moments.

  1. I love this podcast because this is exactly where I am heading.. working on myself… having quiet moments and really taking in my surroundings and myself. In doing so, my life has slowed down and I am not as anxious and worried about getting things done all the time. I am more productive and think through most tasks… I am also more patient with my family. Thank you!!
