But lonely is a freedom that breathes easy and weightless, and lonely is healing if you make it.

What comes to mind when you think of a time you were lonely? How often have you heard words like “freedom” and “magic” associated with the word “lonely”?

Each one of us is predisposed to finding ourselves alone or lonely at some point. Be it for a brief fleeting moment, or for longer, more memorable periods. It can, without doubt, be an intimidating place to be in. Just with ourselves – thoughts, feelings and soul. It opens up for us intense personal spaces which are sometimes perceived to be attached to isolation, unhappiness and pain. It is also a situation which many of us, including me, want to avoid; because loneliness is sometimes synonymous with shame. But that story is about to change now.

Embracing the universality and profundity of this experience, Tanya Davis wrote a poem called ‘How To Be Alone’, which offers a unique lens to the concept of loneliness, making it uplifting, wanted and a practice for self-love. The quote above is from this poem. Featuring illustrations and choreography by Andrea Dorfman, this video is a befitting enactment of Davis’ poem.

If you, like me, have been caught off-guard with the pointed impact of being alone or are actively seeking solitude, this video has a unique gift to share with you. If you are someone who finds the company of your own heart immensely gratifying, this video will give you much celebration. Either way, this poem is going to being alive something beautiful in you.

Whoever you are, wherever you are, this poem goes out to You.
