23 Things Only People Who Love Spending Time Alone Will Understand

23 Things Only People Who Love Spending Time Alone Will Understand

1. A weekend in which you have no plans, no responsibilities, and nowhere at all to be, ranks as one of the best weekends you’ll ever have.

2. Sometimes friends will try to make plans with you and you have no reason to decline except for the fact that you just want to be alone that day. (Your plan is to have no plans, people need to understand that by now, right?)

3. A good album, book, or television show can keep your attention far longer than any party, club, or bar could.

4. Going away to a remote cabin in the middle of the woods to just exist for a period of time sounds like the best idea for a vacation that you can think of.

5. There is nothing more exciting than planning a long, solo road trip, because you know you’re going to be able to think your thoughts, listen to your music, and play your audiobooks for hours and hours on end. Is there anything better?

6. When people say they can’t eat alone at a restaurant, you’re like, really? That’s one of life’s simple pleasures! Food? Good. A book? Good. No conversation whatsoever? Perfect.

7. The worst trait any potential lover could have is “clingy.” You need your space like you need air to breathe. It’s essential. If they need to be around you all the time? Dealbreaker.

8. Even if you are attached, you carve out hours of alone time just to keep your sanity (and to keep your relationship healthy and happy, too).

9. The only person you’d ever consider marrying would be someone that also loves spending time alone, otherwise that thing’s never going to last.

10. If anyone that knew you were to describe you, one of the words they’d use emphatically to do so is: independent.

11. Your intuition is on point because you spend an insane amount of time alone and cultivating it.

12. While people around you hate being single, you consider it such a joy to be able to be at the whim of your aloneness and this feeling is especially better if you live alone, because you have so much time to do all your little things that you do when nobody is around.

13. You’re always working on a project –usually something artistic– and you start to get antsy if you haven’t been able to work on it for a few days.

14. When you do hang out with people, you prefer seeing them one on one or in a small group. The more intimate and deep the conversation, the better.

15. You are an observer –watching and studying people’s behavior– and, funny enough, are usually quite well-liked, which can serve to be a problem considering how much time you want to spend by yourself.

16. A full day by yourself makes you feel more you than anything at all.

17. You tend to enjoy cold, rainy weather, as it gives you even more of an excuse to hibernate in your home and read, sit by the fire, think, curl up, write in your journal.

18. If you are not thinking about life’s big questions, you must be dead.

19. Because you put a premium on spending time alone, you are more present and attentive when you do spend time with people, because you don’t feel as though you’re missing out on time by yourself.

20. You would much rather go on a hike or go to the beach by yourself than with anyone, which isn’t to say you dislike going with people, it’s just a more engaging experience when you do it alone.

21. Sure, it’s fun to drink wine with friends, but having a bottle of wine to yourself at the end of a long day? 100% perfect paradise heaven.

22. Traveling to a new place by yourself (even if the new place is only ten miles away) is your idea of a great time. You are always either planning a solo adventure, going on a solo adventure, or coming back from one. Experiencing the world through your own eyes without anybody else’s opinion is not just a desire, it’s an essential need of yours.

23. There is absolutely nothing that can touch the feeling of when someone cancels plans on you and you are suddenly left with surprise alone time. You’re all, “Oh good, more time to be with me!” and it’s truly an untouchable feeling of happiness.

================================

Կարոտում եմ տուն իմ հայրենի
Դու ամրոցն ես հզոր հայրերի
Դու մատուռն ես դու մեր քնքուշ մայրերի, հայրենիք

Աղոթում եմ Աստված պահպանի։

Դու մատուռն ես դու մեր քնքուշ մայրերի, հայրենիք
Աղոթում եմ Աստված պահպանի։

Օտարություն իմ կյանքից անկախ
Հայի ոգով ապրում եմ անվախ
Ես կդառնամ ու իմ գիրկը քեզ կառնեմ, կփարվեմ
Վախենում եմ կարոտս չառնեմ։

Ես կդառնամ ու իմ գիրկը քեզ կառնեմ, կփարվեմ
Վախենում եմ կարոտս չառնեմ։

Քեզ խլել են, թալանել են, կալանել են
Քո վանքերը, ավիրել են տուն իմ հայրենի,
Խաչքարերդ արցունքներով կլվանամ,
Աղաչում եմ, կանչիր, թույլ տուր տուն դառնամ:

Խաչքարերդ արցունքներով կլվանամ,
Աղաչում եմ, կանչիր, թույլ տուր տուն դառնամ։

Դու դարծել ես օտարի գերի,
Որդինեդ գերի օտարին,
Քո տաք սրտում սառույցներ են գոյացել, քարացել
Գարուններդ աշուն են դարձել:

Քո տաք սրտում սառուցներ են գոյացել, քարացել
Գարուններդ աշուն են դարձել։

Քեզ խլել են, թալանել են, դարանել են
Քո վանքերը ավիրել են տուն իմ հայրենի,
Խաչքարերդ արցունքներով կլվանամ,
Աղաչում եմ կանչիր, թույլ տուր տուն դառնամ:

Խաչքարերտ արցունքներով կլվանամ,
Աղաչում եմ կանչիր, թույլ տուր տուն դառնամ։

Աղաչում եմ, կանչիր, թույլ տուր տուն դառնամ…

To the Children

 

To you, the children…may you grow wise and strong–strong of heart.

With clarity and purpose may you learn well to care for her on whose back you walk…Mother Earth.

Even now, it is we who learn from you, as we watch you grow.
You forgive so quickly, and you love so unconditionally.

The light of spirit shines so brightly within you.

May you cultivate these things as you grow to become the leaders of tomorrow.

May you learn to live in harmony with one another, that your world may be a world of peace.

The Gift

 

Winter snow is falling down
Children laughing all around
Lights are turning on
Like a fairy tale come true

Sittin’ by the fire we made
You’re the answer when I prayed
I would find someone
And, baby, I found you

And all I want is to hold you forever
All I need is you more everyday
You saved my heart from being broken apart
You gave your love away and I’m thankful everyday, for
the gift

Watching as you softly sleep
What I’d give if I could keep
Just this moment
If only time stood still

But the colors fade away
And the years will make us gray
But, baby, in my eyes
You’ll still be beautiful

And all I want is to hold you forever
All I need is you more everyday
You saved my heart from being broken apart
You gave your love away and I’m thankful everyday, for the gift

And all I want is to hold you forever
All I need is you more everyday
You saved my heart from being broken apart
You gave your love away
I can’t find the words to say
And I’m thankful everyday, for the gift
