Being alone - living alone

Since moving in with myself, I have been busy organising for things about the house to be fixed, as well as changing the garden and buying plants, as well as working some days.
These have occupied time, providing a busyness which has meant an easing into being on my own. As I gradually settle and relax, I am adjusting to how this life is for me. Getting to know new people and coming home to my own place on my own. Making decisions on my own. Trusting me. Valuing me. Taking care of me.
On the way to taking time to really sit in silence in me - as the busyness slows.
When do you sit in silence in you? Down at the beach? (Yes, I did that the other day) In the bush?  By the river? On top of a hill? Places in nature support us to be in the stillness in ourselves. The sky, the waves, the stream, the bush, the clouds, the flowers - the expansiveness of nature embraces us.
Or maybe you need movement - walking, dancing. Being still in the movement. And moving in the stillness.
This is the Viking Rune "The Self".
The starting point is self. Only clarity, willingness to change, is effective now. For from a correct relationship to yourself comes a right relationship to all others and to the Divine.
