In solitude we discover that our life is not a possession to be defended, but a gift to be shared.
- Henri Nouwen
It is rather sad to think that many kids haven't had the chance to be still, quiet and learn to know themselves without being defined by how they are seen on Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, etc., etc., etc.... I keep the hope in my heart that as my Nieces and Nephews grow into adulthood, they can continue to learn their true selves separately from the constant barrage of instant connectivity.
Besides, learning to enjoy solitude is as easy as sitting down with my cat, being comforted by his purr, and watching the sun warm his soft fur...
Happy Monday Everyone! Know thyself! ;-)
