Solitude, Who Needs it?

We need some quiet and alone time, to meditate and examine our lives; 
whenever we're facing big challenges; 
when we feel dead tired and discouraged.

 Solitude, who needs it?

I heard the word solitude during my one on one session with a spiritual counselor some years ago. I asked if it really makes sense or just a waste of time? This year alone, I've made an itinerary or  planned several trips. It took me several days to finish it, I have to review how we would get the most out of the trip. Just like plotting an itinerary, solitude has ceremony in it. It should be planned.

Coffee is Comforting, Chocolate is a Sweet Satisfaction

Whenever I feel the need for solitude, I simply go to my room pickup a book and a coffee to accompany me during this quiet time.

People knew me as a coffee drinker but only few knows I'm a chocolate lover too. When I was young my dad would bring home Goya gold coins chocolates he bought from a convenience store. In return, I make a cup of coffee for him. One day, I decided to add a bar of Goya chocolate in his coffee. He prefers coffee without milk so I was happy that he appreciate my first ever coffee concoction.

Coffee and chocolate make sense together. Coffee is comforting, Goya Dark Chocolate is a sweet satisfaction. I can have it whatever I want it to be, whenever I need it especially during alone time. Life is not all bad, not all good, it tends to be bittersweet.


Just like having coffee, solitude makes me comfortable in my skin. Savouring every moment of solitude, the way I savour a cup of my favorite drink. Solitude provides opportunity to detach from the busy world. Solitude is a time for reflection, a food for my soul.
