I’ve never forgotten this early “goal/lesson” from Kindergarten report cards.
Plays well with others?!
DO I need improvement in this?!
Is it possible I play BETTER with others when I’ve ample time by myself?!
At this point in my Life I have learned myself much better.
I have discovered my love of Solitude.
Seen myself flourish BEyond anything I’ve ever managed whilst spending copious amounts of time in my own company.
I’m NOT saying I don’t play well with others generally, just that in order to really DO this I require time with just myself.
Quiet time. Unordered time. Time that I choose to fill my own way.
It is clear that playing well with others is a positive. A desired thing.
And when I DO have that chance I LOVE IT BEyond words.
And yet my time is spent largely with myself.
This has helped me learn to BE my own cherished friend.
Someone I make and take and find the time for and enJOY the time with.
Someone I play “nicely” with, share my toys and cookies with easily…
At the same time [though it’s NOT the same same time] I strive to BE as kind with friends, neighbours, and all whom I meet when I am out there having my tiny adventures close to home.
I love you, Currie
