how to be alone

some people at full tables will wish they were where you are...
lonely is a freedom that breathes easy and weightless and lonely is healing if you make it.
if your heart is bleeding make the best of it.
there is heat in freezing.  be a testament.



  1. One of the most inspiring poems I've seen in quite some time. I love it. Thanks, Jodie!

  2. I love being alone.

    Probably won't love it so much when my kids aren't around though.

    Forced alone time = Not good alone time
    Voluntary alone time = precious

  3. i think what she's talking about here is learning to love forced alone time in a new way... that even if it's not by your own choosing, even if you'd prefer different circumstances, being alone can still be beautiful and good. i love her thoughts on it.
