Why not go alone?

I’ve never felt uncomfortable in my own company. Sure I occasionally get lonely, but I try to regularly meet up with family and friends for catch ups over a meal, drinks or movies. This keeps any “lonely” type feeling at bay.

I often crave and love the moments I am at home alone or able to go and spend the day doing anything I fancy. I love it, I’m quite comfortable.

Yes, this means I have gone to a restaurant or cafe and eaten on my own, I’ve gone to gigs to watch a band and I’ve definitely rocked up solo for a movie. The more you do it, the more you realise other people are too – the first time I went to the movies on my own I was surprised to see so many people on their own. I enjoyed it and have done it a few more times… I love doing it when I’ve had a run of low points or stressful situations, it’s nice to tune into a different world and relax.

I am looking forward to my next overseas trip (in 7ish months) as I spend a third with two friends and then travel to a variety of destinations on my own,  I haven’t solo traveled on my own overseas before but as it is my third international trip I figured why not? I am looking forward to having to go by no one’s time but my own, I can skip attractions that don’t interest me and spend more time at those that do. I can have indulging, pampering days and not stress that I am slowing someone down. As Carrie Bradshaw memorably gushed when she was dating her beautiful city, there is so much you can do, everything holds potential for adventure or fun.

I think it is important that everyone has some solo time at some point to clear your mind and recharge… As the quote from Diane states building a relationship and understanding of yourself is important, you will be stronger, independent and have clearer ideals of what you want out of life, experiences and your other relationships.

I’d love to read your views and if you have or haven’t done this.

A chat with my readers..

Hello to anyone reading this post – regulars, readers who occasionally skim this blog and anyone who has just stumbled across it. I love writing and creating my blog posts.

The reason for this post? An apology, I have been out of action lately. I went on a wonderful and intense holiday throughout four major cities in North America (Los Angeles, San Fransisco, Las Vegas and New York City) with Contiki on the Best of Usa tour.
Following this due to some personal events that took place I needed some time out. To regather my thoughts and take some time out for myself. I am still working on that but tonight was the first night I have thought, ‘hey, let’s write a post’. So here we are. Basically sorry for the abrupt hiatus, but THANKYOU to everyone who kept reading, was very pleased to see the stats when I logged back in.

You guys are amazing! So here is what is coming, what you can expect in the weeks to come from For The Style Seeking Girl :

* Hairstyle review posts
* More Inspire Me Monday and Hint of Glamour posts
* A guest post from me (Kooklah) for another blogger
* A series of posts on women whom I know, and find strong, motivated, creative and stylish in their own way – especially in their respective careers or job positions.
* Some posts inspired and about my trip to the beautiful USA

So please be patient, so many good things on the way!

To finish, I will leave you with a style quote. To ‘like’ this blog on facebook click here
