New Years Day is coming to an end… the year is not so new. I have spent 85% of the holidays alone at home. I have cooked a lot, which means that I have had healthier food than usual. Now that the holidays are almost over I am starting to feel the weight of spending so much time by myself… without physical human contact.
As much as I like to spend time by myself, I know that the joy of spending time by myself comes after time spend in social spaces. This holiday season I spent more time by myself than with other people. I don’t miss the people, I just miss the balance between being with others and being by myself. I also miss having something to do. But everything has it’s time and purpose. I will enjoy the by myself time for what it is. Social time will come.
