Lonely is a freedom that breaths easy and weightless, and lonely is healing if you make it

I found this video on my new favorite blog, Daily Poetics, and I had to pass it along. What a lovely reminder for us, when everything is telling us we need to be constantly stimulated and surrounded, that it's okay to be calm and alone. See the full transcript of the gorgeous poem here.

"And then take yourself out dancing, to a club where no one knows you, stand on the outside of the floor until the lights convince you more and more and the music shows you. Dance like no ones watching because they’re probably not. And if they are, assume it is with best human intentions. The way bodies move genuinely to beats, is after-all, gorgeous and affecting. Dance until you’re sweating. And beads of perspiration remind you of life’s best things. Down your back, like a book of blessings."
