This past weekend, I had 2 days alone.
As a momma,
we are always so BUSY,
that we forget what being alone truly means.
We are so taken back by the feeling, that we do not know how to spend our time.
In my head, I think: “How can I fully monopolize on this situation”?
“How productive can I be”?
And then, after a few hours, you anticipate your littles return…
You’ve missed them.
Pre marriage, I struggled with being alone.
In fact, I was fearful of it.
Living on my own, never sat well with me.
I saw my parents more when I was out of the house, then I did when I physically lived with them.
That sense of independence sounded glamorous, but deep down I hated it.
This past weekend reminded me how much I struggle with this sense of alone.
My new’s year resolution this year is to dismiss my fear.
I want to get back into God’s circle of blessing and be ok with the me that was created so perfectly in his image.
I want to plant my feet firmly on the ground and be content with ME.
Sometimes it’s stepping outside of our comfort zone for us to grow as God’s children.
How does being alone sit with you?
