The Quiet of Alone

February 19, 2021

“We’re spread so thin there’s nothing left for us. But here’s the thing: Time alone is as essential as breathing.

“Time to check in with ourselves, to sit in the core of who we are and uncover what’s really going on in there. If our cells are repaired while we sleep, then our heart is renewed in the quiet of the alone. And it’s there in the stillness that we truly get to know ourselves, learning how to live with genuine curiosity and desire, rather than need and avoidance.”

—Susannah Conway, This I Know
