I am home alone a lot now that my son has gone to college. I keep myself busy with work, blogging, looking for meaningful work, seeing friends and family, doing the housework and yard work. It is all busy work.
I miss my son and having someone here with me. Having my son here made me feel more comfortable and secure. It has been many years since I lived alone and I forgot what it was like.
I have the television on more now than before. It keeps me company and my cat keeps me company. I talk to my cat and sometimes I find myself talking out loud. I know it’s kind of weird but I guess hearing myself talk is better than the silence.
It’s the next phase of my life. I’m no longer having to make meals for my son or call him when I am stopping at the store to see if he needs anything. It’s time to move forward and embrace this time that I have to find new passions and self fulfillment.
