Alone Time – Does it Make You a Loser

“What a lovely surprise to discover how unlonely being alone can be” Ellen Burstyn

Alone Time - Good for You or For Losers?
Alone Time - Good for You or For Losers?
Hey GirlMoguls, it’s Daisy here, with a post in our quote series – today, my theme is about solitude. You know being alone on purpose. It also means no TV, computer, internet or video games. I think some music and books are allowed, but if you really want to go deep into solitude, try just taking a walk in the park without your tunes, or sitting in the backyard or even in your room.
Does it sound like torture? I mean, why would anyone want to be alone. Well to get some peace and quiet, to let your brain really cook. For creative people being alone can really bring on the trippy ideas – or help solve problems (like the time I figured out to fix the creaky arm on my newest robot). Sometimes I just take 15 minutes at the end of the day, sit in my room with some music on low and just let myself zone. It totally balances me out at the end of a crazy day and I am totally ready to get a good night’s rest.
That’s why I picked my quote. When I take a little time for myself, to truly be alone, I really never feel lonely. I feel great, totally comfortable with myself. And I also find I am in a much better mood – and totally able to deal with other people and not um, let my natural snarkiness, I mean impatience come out. I mean Lily can totally tell when I haven’t had enough alone time. And she steers clear until I’ve had my 15 minutes of blissful peaceout.

So go ahead – try being alone – try it for 15 minutes. You can set your timer or your alarm, and I bet you’ll be surprised at how it feels – mean when was the last time you were ever deliberately alone…see what I mean…. You can let me know how it goes in the comments below.

Quote of the Day – Write it Out

“Oh, so many things bubble up inside me… That’s why in the end I always come back to my diary. That is where I start and finish.”

Anne Frank – diarist

keeping a journal can help your feelings
keeping a journal can help your feelings

Hey GirlMoguls, it’s Rose again.  Today we’re going to look at quotes about keeping a journal – as you know I’m a writer and I’ve always kept a diary ever since I could remember.  Well more than one, it seems like I am always filling them up and finding a new cute one to start fresh.

I picked this quote because that’s how I feel too.  I use my journal to help collect the bubbles.  I mean growing up is hard to do – so many things seem to happen, between friends, and school and family.  And then there are my emotions…It seems like I am having a new one every day.  So when things get really bad, I just turn to my journal and write about it.  Sometimes I write a few lines, and sometimes I write for pages – but whatever it is, afterwards, I always feel better.  And if I had a problem, usually I have figure out a way to solve it – just by writing about.

So if you want to start your own journal – you don’t need anything fancy – a simple notebook, even a marble composition book will do – you can decorate it with stickers or some wrapping paper or magic markers.  You can write in pen or paper, whatever.  You can write every day or once a week, or only when you need to.  You can keep your journal with you wherever you go, or you can keep it safe at home.  You can re-read your entries or never look at them again.  And remember they’re for your eyes only –so you can be honest, you can make spelling mistakes, you can even try writing in code.  Just start writing and you’ll see how much better you feel.
