“Solitude is where one discovers one is not alone.”
― Marty Rubin
When was the last time you were all alone and thought about your life?
In these days of ultra – connectedness and the continuous need of being socially active 24×7, has made solitude a lost art.
I am no loner, I love to talk to my friends, have a good dinner with my family. But, there comes a time when you really need to introspect your thoughts and refine them.
Art in it’s best form is created when one is in solitude. In deep thoughts, of beauty. One can find answers to their long awaited questions. Great philosophers took long walks alone and that is when they came up with their best of theories.
My best photography, and in fact the best of anything I’ve ever done, was when I was in solitude.
It is the time to reflect on what we’ve done and learn from it. To find your inner voice and not being influenced by any other person, be it your family members or your peer group. And once you start listening to this inner voice, you’ll find peace in everything you do.
Constructive Solitude, in these days as much as ever, is an absolute necessity.
