day 87: Befriending Aloneness.

Though our journey as women alone begins in fear, it ends, hopefully, in renewal. Befriending aloneness, we learn the creative potential of solitude, wherein we can recover, reclaim, and learn to express self.But we must be willing to allow the process of discovery to occur naturally. This means we must sit with, not run from, the discomforting feelings of shame, guilt, self-blame, and more that sometimes afflict us.
