Today, I am grateful for knowing I am comfortable in my own company again. Six months ago, I hit rock bottom and felt very alone to the extent that I feared my own company. It was easy to blame it on the gloomy weather, old carpets and ceiling falling apart over my head. In hindsight, though, it wasn’t not having a wonderful home and housemate or missing out on sun-kissed skies that made it hard. It was my will to succumb to darkness over my need to see the light. Since…I’ve constantly leaned on someone or something to keep me company. I am grateful for feeling alone and lonely because it taught me what to never wish for. The mind can be a dark place but I don’t have to be. Last night, as we sojourned in the wilderness, there were moments I was alone and for the first time in a long time, I was okay with that. I am okay with that and I feel grateful for it!
