How To Enjoy Being Alone

As I was catching up on Facebook today, I noticed the video “How To Be Alone” on my friend Pamela Dangelmaier’s FB wall. As Pamela says, this video carries a poignant message. I couldn’t agree more.

I quote Bravo, who produced this video – “A whimsical piece that explores the multi-faceted definition of “alone”; the relationship between solitude and loneliness; and the multitude of ways we can embrace being alone while negating the associated stigmas.” This video is by filmmaker, Andrea Dorfman, and poet/singer/songwriter, Tanya Davis.

There are so many lonely people in the world. Some even lonely in a room full of people. By learning to enjoy the moment for what it is, life can become more joy-full.

“This is my wish for you: Comfort on difficult days, smiles when sadness intrudes, rainbows to follow the clouds, laughter to kiss your lips, sunsets to warm your heart, hugs when spirits sag, beauty for your eyes to see, friendships to brighten your being, faith so that you can believe, confidence for when you doubt, courage to know yourself, patience to accept the truth, Love to complete your life.”
