I believe in strangely wrapped gifts. When I was struggling in my darker days of recovery, I isolated...a lot. My husband was working a project out west so I could isolate in the house and get away with it....but I knew I needed to make myself enter the world once more...and as my recovery grew, I did.

But the gift that came from all this was my ability to like being alone with me sometimes, and to learn all about quietude and meditation and classical music and just making my own space and enjoying it.

I learned the difference between isolation and solitude....darkness and light.

Thank you for this reminder, Daisy.
