Another week…another day in the SANDBOX………Writing Challenge. This week I’m digging from a new location……..same results though. Still gotta shift through the rocky stuff to get to the smooth silky sand.
This weeks challenge asks us WHAT MAKES YOU FEEL LONELY?
Lonely….happened while I was living in the home we built as a family. Husband, 3 children, 3 dogs, 4 cats, and 2 ferrets. In a household of chaos and business, I was inexplicably lonely……it was not a good place to be………..thankfully, that was then, this is now………
I’ve closed the door on yesterday…..That’s no longer my life.
Now a days….I actually seek out and enjoy my solitude. I’ve said it numerous times before…I need it and I’m selfish with it…sometimes to a fault. It’s hard for those who need and seek companionship on a more regular basis, to understand those of us who prefer our own company….I’ve stopped trying to explain. Now when asked, I shrug my shoulders and simply say, ‘that’s me.” I have found as I get older, I’m much more content not being in the middle of things, preferring to remain outside on the peripheral.

I may be Alone….but I’m never Lonely.
