Alovely Alone Time

There's nothing better than spending time with your main squeeze. Hours and days can evaporate in a blur of cuddling on the couch, eating take-out and sleeping with your foreheads pressed together. It's fantastic.

However, equally fantastic is what happens when you leave the love nest and go back to your own apartment. You get to be all alone...

And although the flavor is a bit different, this too can be a delicious passing of hours and days. You can exercise smack-dab in the middle of your living room, leave your sweaty hair in a ponytail, make a cup of your favorite tea and curl up to read a captivating chick book for as long as you want. You don't have to answer to anyone. You don't have to impress anyone. You can have spinach in your teeth and stubble under your armpits and it doesn't matter one tiny, little bit.

Everyone needs this time. Everyone needs to be comfortable in their aloneness. When it comes down to it, you're all you've really got. And if you can't pass the minutes enjoying your own self, you'll be passing up some of the best time of your life.
