How to be alone

“Because if you’re happy in your head then solitude is blessed and alone is okay.”

Love it! I have gone shopping alone, eaten meals in public alone (albeit with the company of a book or my cellphone – gotta work on that) and pursued spiritual courses alone.

If you can read your entire manuscript without wanting to make a single change, then you’re good to go – it’s the best you could do at the time. Maybe a break is good, maybe it’s not. All I know is that I edit and re-write and tweak my stories until I just want to get them published and never have to read them again.

13 Things Mentally Strong People Don’t Do

Someone shared this in my FB feed and I’m posting the link here as a reminder for myself, and for future reference.
