For most of this year, I've felt positive, energized, and empowered.
Today just hasn't been one of those days.
I should be thankful that my city by the water has made it so easy to embrace solitude. It's hard to feel lonely alone when surrounded by reminders of how beautiful the world actually is. I get worried sometimes that being here has made it so frighteningly easy to be content in my own company.
But there are days when even being close to my beloved ocean, running by the river, or lying on the grass in one of Perth's myriad open spaces staring at the bright blue sky all fail to soothe.
And those times I just feel alone - and wonder what the hell I'm doing here.
