Alone Time

Do you like your alone time? Do you enjoy your own company?

After spending about 4years altogether on remote cattle stations it is pretty clear that I am happy in my own company and enjoyed just hanging out with me. I had to be my own best bud or I'd have never lasted. I am confident and happy driving from one place to the other through remote areas by myself and have always enjoyed that time by myself, music loud, singing along, well until my butt got sore and I was sick of being confined to a car.

I do however also enjoy time with others. It is a bit of a balancing act though. Sometimes too much time with others really gets to me sometimes too much time with myself does.

I do think my batteries recharge best in a quiet place. 
Often by myself. 
Often outdoors.

 Reading for me has always been a good escape and refresher. 
I need to do more of that.

I still spend a lot of time alone and I do find the more time I spend alone the harder it is to deal with being social and the less tolerant I get of idiots other people. I spend a fair bit of time exploring places alone, often filling in time to tell the truth. I quite like going places alone though because I can take my time and look at what I want to look at. Maybe too much alone time isn't that good for me, sometimes it gets a bit lonely, but I do enjoy it most of the time.

Bit of an antisocial butterfly aren't I.
These photos are from yesterday evening while getting ready for my night job, I just had to stop and take a few pics. The clouds with pretty amazing and different all in one. It rained not long after.

I Must Confess


  1. Enjoying alone time doesn't make you anti-social. :) I do enjoy alone time... which I totally embrace, because once the kids are home from school, it's mostly about them and I don't really get much alone time then.

  2. Really enjoyed reading this post. I think it's all about balance. It's good to have time to yourself but also it's nice to spend a little time with people as well. Joan at www.aviewtothefells.com

  3. I feel you. I also enjoy having time all to myself. I think spending time alone every now and then is healthy. That's why I don't understand why some people are "afraid" of being alone.

  4. Loved this post, it inspired me to write a little about alone time too! I really love living in the middle of nowhere on a farm, it gives me plenty of time to be all alone and I really really need it! As much as I love being social I also need time to just be by myself. Probably more so then I need social time..
