When we talk about being alone, the first impression most people get is that it is a bad thing to be alone. It is associated with extreme loneliness and social issues and other stigma
To tell the truth, being alone isn’t all that bad. In fact, it’s good to spend some time alone once in a while, to reflect and to be honest with ourselves. Here are some benefits you can gain from having some regular alone time. Give it a go and see how you feel 😊

This frame of Helen was taken just as the sun was peaking up over the horizon, it was chilly and we were just chatting about life and her new tattoo and waking up before sunrise. Just doing us. I was fumbling around with my lens unattached wishing I had four hands as I tried to catch a focus point I liked (cue tiny violins as I tell tales of my love/hate relationship with freelensing). And I remember my eyes falling on this as I was editing and thinking “well shit, this is SO her - effortlessly beautiful, light dripping from all the right places. Making you look again, just a little closer.” And isn’t it just magic when that happens? .

So I finally caught up with a dear friend of mine! She is one who holds perspective, makes me laugh 😆, and I ALWAYS leave HER feeling truly heard!! ❤️.

Knocks. 2009 - 2011. Fresh from freelancing (school of hard knocks) I was hungry only for failure. Just failure. I rushed as usual into odd projects, did the odd/off crazy stuff. Unafraid and unfettered. The rush of learning something new, something that helped broaden the horizon/ scope and deepen the awareness of things around me.
To survive the city life, I took up a corp job once more. This time however, I chose what I loved and enjoy till today. However inertia creeped in. Each time a deadline, or looming work forced this learning/experimenting to the next week, and the next and the next till it went into the 'to do' bin.
Learning: Don't blame the system. The real art lies (within you of course) to persist and prevail 'despite' the system. It's a mix of managing yourself, your time and letting a whole lot of 'friends' down👎. Ideally I would bracket everyone into acquaintances unless and only unless I have 'avatar' moment(s) where there is actually an intertwining of thoughts, consistency of action, follow up and care (without agenda). The last two words and the kernel of disclaimer is actually the deal breaker for me.
I have had 'friends' and I have myself been one of those that I despise today (and have been despising for a while). Life's too short for fake/bad relationships that suck the life force out of you and your living. So find your tribe before you get too old, too rigid. And darlings, 'friends' (the real ones) number less than the fingers you can ideally find on both your hands. #learning#perspectives
Imagine getting to the end, and life flashes in front of your eyes, in slow motion. Imagine seeing your greatness, imagine seeing your impact. Imagine seeing the career you had, the people you inspired the legacy you created. Imagine the long list of achievement you attained. Imagine seeing your courage so strong that you dared to pursue what you wanted in life and got it
Now imagine looking at all of that and thinking, that’s not me? I didn’t achieve any of those things? I didn’t have that career I didn’t meet that person, I had nothing to do with their greatness, all I ever achieved was a job that I hated and an average normal life
Finally, imagine a tiny little voice inside your head, that of which we all have, whispering...that was your potential, that’s what you were supposed to do, what you were meant to achieve
Every single day you have is an new chance to strive to fulfil your potential, to step into the shoes of the man or woman you are supposed to become for that day. The process doesn’t stop there though, you have to get up, dress up, show up and do it again
Live your best life, be your best self. At the end of the day you have a choice between two pains, the pain of discipline or the pain of regret

When I met this guy, he had his pilot’s license. We flew a lot in a four-seater Cessna, including many trips to Notre Dame. He gave up flying when I got pregnant; small plane crashes are mainly due to pilot error, and he deemed it “not worth it”. Agreed.
I still like small planes though. They’re more intimate than 757s and way more comfortable than any coach seat. It feels like riding in a car, just in the sky.
This 6-seater was our third plane for the day en route to Costa Rica. It reminded me of the Cessna, but I was still a little nervous. Not of the plane, but of international travel in general, because #homebody
I couldn’t shake this uneasiness. As we reached cruising altitude, I did a quick body scan, so to speak. My heart rate was totally normal. I wasn’t sweaty, my hands weren’t clammy. In short, my body was not at all afraid. It was my mind that was tripping me up with the “what if games”. And then something glorious happened...
In the course of one magical inhale, my nostrils filled with the scent of my grandpa’s old Chevy Silverado (mechanic-y, motor oily, goodness). And just like that? My mind calmed too. “Thanks Grandpa,” I said on the inside.
Muscato watched the pilot and the instruments, nodding his approval. We reminisced about the Cessna days and in 25 short minutes landed safe and sound.
It’s a new destination for us. New experiences and new memories. Yet, there’s already the familiar weaving its way into the mix. In fact, it’s one of my favorite things about travel; seeing how signs of “home” show up and say hi. 🚽😊
If you struggle, look for other options to solve the problem. 😁📖 _______________________________

I had the pleasure of experiencing @refinery29 ‘s 29 Rooms exhibition last night and it was one of the most beautiful interactive art installations I’ve ever been to. One of the rooms that stuck out to me the most though, was one in which you got to hand write a letter to your child self and pin it to a wall full of letters of strangers that preceded you. I felt myself getting emotional reading all of the letters because I came to the realization that as adults, we all collectively wish happiness and acceptance for ourselves. It was powerful reading the closure and support we fail to offer ourselves on a day to day basis being given to our child selves. Not until we see ourselves in the mirrors as children once again, do we recognize that we deserve all the happiness and acceptance we can get. So this poem reflects just that internal monologue I had with myself as I was looking through that time portal. • What would you say to your younger self? •
ICHING no.62, Conscientiousness: Be very detail oriented and thorough in your actions. Make sure nothing is overlooked, even if they seem trivial. This is not the time to take on great endeavors; focus on the small things. Be humble. Pride now will lead you in the wrong direction or to seek unrealistic goals.
ICHING no.61, Insight: Face your goal with an open mind and take a step back to evaluate. Don’t lose sight of your principles, but allow yourself embody your goal from another’s perspective. This yields useful insight which helps you understand and achieve your goal.
