It used to drive me crazy when people would say “You’re never alone!” Ummmm yes I was and still am sometimes. I was like…there is nobody here in my home with me days in a row, so ummm yes, I am alone. And YES I believe in God, I believe there are guides on the “other side” looking out for me. I believe my dad, family and friends that have crossed are “around” when I call on them. But I was talking in the human manifestation sense, you know like people. So I always had a hard time resonating with the concept “you’re not alone”…because it sure as hell felt like it.
Then one day after wrapping a movie at my home where I was used to having like 60 people in my home from 5 am to midnight 5 days in a row, all of us working together for a common goal, my home was empty. It went from like having this huge family to being able to hear a pin drop. It was just me and a crew member on the stoop and that friend was talking about his life, and how he has to return to his “real life” now and how that consists of living “alone”…and visiting an older relative to take care of her throughout the week. How he eats by himself etc. and it wasn’t in a sad way, he was just telling me what his day to day consisted of. That’s when it hit me, the perspective that made sense to me. So try and get this with me…..It’s not that I’m not “alone”……it’s that I’m NOT alone in BEING alone. There were OTHER people out there feeling the same things I was feeling! It was an ahaa moment for me! And when I connected to THAT concept, I ironically didn’t feel alone anymore! lol
I’ve also learned throughout my life that you can feel alone when you are by yourself, and you can feel alone when you are in a relationship…it really doesn’t matter. So if you can feel alone either way the only person to really look for in finding happiness is yourself. It is a DECISION to be happy when you have moments that you are alone…it may be for weeks,months or even years.. And when you get there, you just may start having thoughts like…”What do I have to be grateful for?” Or “You know what….let me check on my garden and take care of my vegetables and flowers.” And “Hey I’m feeling good right now and there is nobody here…I am at peace…cool!” I have grown into a much more peaceful place in my life now, and I have to say it feels really nice 🙂 So it was important for me to get this thought out to you today. That’s why I love to sign off with “We are all in this together!” Because whatever it is you are going through or feeling, there ARE people out there going through the same thing. And its opportunities like this when I can reach out to you and remind you of this, that we can bridge the gap:) I’m sending you lots of love and light right now as I am writing this..so please take it and feel it!!!:)
