I learned to appreciate freedom and alone time after my past relationships.  I learned to love myself.  I enjoy traveling alone.  I appreciate the time to be just by myself.

But now, taking a break on my own is not as easy because I have a career to tend to.  It is really hard for me to leave my work and be away for several days.  It makes me feel worry more.  Yet, I still find time to be alone- relax and reflect by myself.

The times that I really had alone time were:

1.  I visited the southern part of Iloilo.

2.  I visited the churches in the second district of Iloilo.

3.  I watched movies alone.

4.  I looked for a purple birthday gift.

5.  I was left alone at home.

on bed and watching the moonlight

6.  I visited Trappist monastery in Guimaras once a month last two years ago.

7.  I did knitting the whole day.

You can even have alone time for just 20 to 30 minutes for you to reflect by yourself.  Alone time is just a moment (to have peace of mind and de-stress) and not a lifetime.

Being along sometimes helps you reflect on yourselves. Enjoy the process, Redlan. Btw, I like the blue knitted stuff :D

being alone do have its blessings: katahimikan, walang mangungulit at nakakapag-concentrate tayo ng mabuti. when i travel alone, my senses are at its most active!
