Bloganuary Day 27

This is an interesting topic today. To be honest, I don’t really seek solitude. I don’t often need or want to be alone. That’s not to say I don’t like my own company as I really do but after a few hours on my own, I become bored of my own company and like to speak to others or my partner.

Maybe I do not search for solitude as I often have it without having to try. I would often go for a walk on my own, especially along the coast. It’s good to blow away the cobwebs, take in some fresh air, have a think and increase my step count. It just so happens that I am often on my own as my friends or partner will be working. So, realistically, this would be my place for solitude and maybe it is required more than I will even know, even if I don’t plan to have solitude.

Also my trips to the gym are good for my own quality time, doing something just for me. However, there are often other people there for me to converse with so I guess it’s not really solitude.

When we were in lockdown, I would find solitude in the bathroom. Otherwise I was with my partner 24/7. This was never a problem for me as we enjoy each other’s company a lot but a visit to the toilet was a great way to have a few minutes to yourself. I know a lot of my friends who are parents agree with this one 😆.

Where do you go when you need solitude?

  1. In my career I spent a lot of time alone, in fact I’ve seen the role of MD described as the loneliest place on Earth – yet I loved it and was happy in my own company. Since meeting Michaela (2011) I am the complete opposite, I get no pleasure at all from being alone! But if I ever needed solitude, it would be sitting on a clifftop in Cornwall looking out over the Atlantic.
