“Solitude is as needful to the imagination as society is wholesome for the character.”
-James Russell Lowell, Among My Books
Solitude, time spent alone, nourishes our soul. And yet, some of us associate time by ourselves with loneliness. Maybe it’s that we’re afraid of being bored, or that we’re so used to having company that the silence seems awkward. Yet solitude is necessary for our spiritual growth. This is where we learn, this is where we receive those valuable insights. Make a date with yourself today – and spend some time is glorious solitude!
