How to Be Alone

This video has been floating around the interwebs for the past couple of weeks, and I finally just got around to watching it.  As the most ironically attention-seeking introvert you'll ever meet, this really speaks to me.  I love being alone, but I fought hard against it for years thinking that it was weird or anti-social or fear-based.  But a lot of my best times are by myself - traveling alone, eating alone, wandering alone, exploring alone.  Sure, I've been lonely, but I enjoy my company and generally enjoy going solo.  So, this is an affirmation of what I once considered freakery, and a lovely affirmation at that. 

Here's to the loners.  I toast you from afar.

I always say I'm the most extroverted introvert you'll ever meet. I love traveling alone, exploring alone... enjoying my 'me-ness' :). Cheers to you as well!
