Weekends Are For Moving Slowly



Maybe you've seen it or maybe you haven't and you'll enjoy it as much as I did. I discovered it here after following a few links. It's been awhile since I've been ALONE alone (hello, children!) but I found it beautiful and thought provoking all the same.

And off topic, if you haven't heard Best Coast's music you'll want to meander through it as soon as possible.

i LOVE being alone.
being alone = being truly myself - ie, not nose-wiper, cook, cleaner, negotiator, comforter, diaper-changer...etc - just me :)

Thank you for sharing that. I moved three years go from Los Angeles to New Zealand on a whim. All my family is back in the states. I have been on my own for a long time. It's been hard. This made me feel a bit better :)

Wow, this is beautiful. I am not every really alone either (yeah, kids). but this video is so wonderfully written and visually interesting. thanks so much for sharing it!

Nice video. But seriously, I haven't been alone in 4 1/2 years. Some time alone is the only thing on my wish list.

I was linked this video earlier this week, it was instantly favorited on my youtube account! Not only does it offer a refreshing perspective, but every piece of advice is absolutely true.

I loved that. Thank you.
I am a huge introvert (I like people and can handle big groups and stay at home with two small children,too; but get 'recharged' when I'm alone)
so that was very meaningful to me.

I love alone time. A lot of people don't understand how healthy it can be to spend some time alone once in a while. Recharge the batteries. Thanks for sharing.

i saw this last week on a friends blog, and it made me kind of teary eyed. i had my daughter when i was 16, and now i have a 2.5 year old son... so i am never alone. ever. and i haven't been in a really, really long time, haha. i sort of envy this girl, and anyone who lives a life like hers. but it also makes me appreciate my husband and children and their constant companionship too <3

i hadn't seen that before but i love the peace that comes along with it <3

ok.. this is going to be a regular thing for me here in a couple of weeks. i'm not used to being alone. this year both of my girls will be in full-time school and i will find myself wondering what to do during my days. this helps so much! thank you friend.
xo.

i really love this video. i enjoy alone time, and even thrive in it, but after moving out on my own, i have found myself with more alone time then i want. learning to be alone when you don't want to be is a challenge, but this video helps in those moments of solitude. also, this is like the third time this week i have been told i need to check out best coast. i think i need to get on that. :]

You really made my sunday better with this post. I watched the video and listened to Best Coast on pandora. Just what the doctor ordered for a blah day.
