30-Day Blogging Challenge Day 19: Something I miss

Solitude and Freedom.

With all the ideas and strategies running through my head, I need those increasingly rare times when I can just be by myself, do whatever I want, whenever I want, and however I want, and process all those thoughts into strategies that makes sense.

Marriage and family lets me have little of that, to be honest. Having people who I care to be around me is definitely great, but my introspective side finds itself struggling to break free.

I love being alone, and this fact sometimes confuses people, especially those who don’t understand me. I often find myself driving out almost in the middle of the night, just to enjoy some “me” time while drinking tea at my favourite cafe. As long as I have something else with me that I can put my ideas into, like my smartphone, netbook or notebook (the writing kind), I could spend an hour or two just jotting ideas, sketches and whatever comes to mind, with the hope that I could get back to those ideas and work on them.

I think I would be as happy being a rich hermit as much as I do being a mother.

Spread the love
