And with them, creating a process that unfurls the heads of confusing question marks into tall and proud exclamation marks. I get it! I never thought of it like that. That’s why my (insert your choice of: boss, partner, friend, colleague here) does that.
I also adore being alone.
Learning and development is my passion.
And, at the end of the day, I look forward to some quiet, alone time.
Learning and development is what I’d do even if I didn’t get paid (the true litmus test).
Learning and development also feeds a reverse need in me for being solo. For restoring, for hibernation, for seeking and finding caves, for soothing stillness, for calm. I’m a better trainer, partner, mama, friend and all-round human when I’ve had some solo time.
My proclamation –
- Being alone is not a synonym for being lonely.
- In this busy, frenetic, crowded world of ours seeking solo is not a sickness.
- It’s in fact yin to the yang.
- When you’re happy in your head, alone is [more] than ok.
- Being an introverted trainer isn’t an oxymoron, in fact it’s a gift to my participants.
Sound weird to your ears? Here are some lessons for how to be alone.
P.S. I get a delicious little thrill knowing that Tanya Davis participated in a training I did some years ago.
