Doing it Alone

I used to worry about going solo

Striding out to places only I wanted to see

Going to the cinema to see a film

Only I wanted to see

Drinking coffee in a coffee shop alone

Sitting on the prom with a portion of chips

With not even a dog for company

Not any more

Tell yourself you're people watching

Tell yourself it's an experiment

Tell yourself anything

Just strike out 

With confidence

Be comfortable in your own skin

In who you are

And who you want to be

In the places you go

And the places you see

Just be you

You will be brilliant at it



  1. Yes it is. Sometimes I just want to be by myself, just people watching or sea watching.

  2. I love to go out walking but my husband always has a dodgy knee, so I just go by myself, sometimes my son will come with me. Nothing stops me. x

  3. Agree with this philosophy completely.

  4. I wish I'd had the confidence in my younger days to do exactly this.

  5. I always take a good book along.
    So I have company!!!
