Day 44

I dare you to have a hermit day.

I love to be around people. I love the energy ( for the most part). I love the noise. I love just knowing that people are there. Growing up I was that kid that as soon as I walked in the house after coming home from a vacation or a busy day running errands, I wanted to call someone to come over and play. I love being social.
But as I have gotten older, I have discovered the beauty in being alone.
As much as I love being in the middle of a crowded room, I absolutely love the silence in being alone.
I also have learned to appreciate being alone because I rarely get alone time at my house anymore. I basically lived alone for a few months and I was torn between loving it and hating it. But now that I have another roommate that I didnt plan on, who has no job and is always at home, I get sick of always having the presence of another human.
I am very grateful for being able to go in my bedroom and shut the door and do my own thing in there.
Sometimes being around people is amazing. But it is important to have alone time to regroup and collect your thoughts and sometimes to just breathe.
