One Hour Alone
For our first assignment in class, we were asked to do a “One Hour Alone” where you sit somewhere quiet, by yourself and just observe your senses and feelings. My one hour alone was very interesting. I chose to sit in my car in front of my house for one hour. At first it was very boring but then I started to think about my life. It was raining outside and I felt so relaxed. All I heard were rain drops dropping on the windshield and I was watching them fall as I laid in my seat. All I could smell is the heat coming from the car and the cup of coffee I had to keep me awake. I started thinking about how much I miss my mom who had left a couple days ago to Jordan to see her sick brother you suffered a stroke and is currently in a coma. I thought about all the moments I had with my uncle and how much of a nice guy he is. My uncle suffering a stoke reminded me of my PED class and how important it is to stay healthy and fit, to prevent stuff like this at an early age. This one hour alone helped me relieve a little stress I had in my life. I thought everything through and little by little I saw myself feeling relieved. It was like a problem and resolution time. I thought about the problem, and I solved it in my head with a good resolution. It's good to be alone every once in a while to think about everything throughly. I felt like I was communicating with myself, and even understanding myself more. I will definitely do this more often with myself.
