How to Be Alone*
Hi, I’m Andrea
On this blog you’ll be learning with me how to use our voices, share our creative superpowers and live life in full color.
As an artist, photographer, life coach + mentor, I’m redefining what it means to be a SUPERHERO — ‘cause in my world, it’s got nothing to do with capes, spandex or sidekicks and everything to do with tenderness, intuition & baby steps of bravery.

The most beautiful dress I’ve ever seen.
During one of the first days I arrived in Colorado to tend to my father, my sister and I went to return something at Anthropologie. My sister and I love to shop together and I ended up getting a beautiful turquoise printed dress. Shopping therapy! We declared. It was...

I’m so excited that you posted this. I just saw if for the first time a few days ago and love, love, love it!
Got me teary eyed. Beautiful!
Love this – thank you for sharing!
Thank you for sharing this. I really needed to hear this message today.
Absolutely incredibly beautiful and fit perfectly into my heart. . . Love this to the moon and back! 🙂
How gorgeous and wonderful! It makes me want to go spend a day alone. xox
This could not have come at a better time for me. Thank you for answering my prayers, and the prayers of many others.
Thank you Andrea! As always you post such timely things that speak to my heart. I am only three hours into a two day stint of being alone (with my 7 month old son) to “work” I am a sculptor and have not had much time to work since my second son was born. My husband took our oldest son (who is 3) to his parents so I could “be alone to get some work done”
“if you have an art that needs practice, stop neglecting it.” wow. perfectly said.
i love this. thank you.
oh this is amazing!!! I LOVE HER!!! I have a very hard time with being alone all the time – and having a business from home and now being full time mama to Max from 8:30am until 7pm every day – I have a hard time filling those hours with things that will inspire us both. I can get hard on myself for not knowing what to do and feel sad that I am not with friends. I think I need to watch this over and over!! Love Love Love it.
Crying again! I am pregnant too with our 2nd babe and feel like I can’t get enough people, like there aren’t enough people around here to make me feel the way I am craving. Well, turns out they don’t have to remedy, I do. Lovely! I think today the woods are calling. Sometimes I wish I could just call you up and say, wanna come over.
Beautiful and inspiring! Thank you Andrea for sharing!
Wow, wow, WOW!
Nice. I enjoy alone time.
This is so, so lovely! I’m on a 2 month bus trip, which involves a lot of alone. And a lot of conversations on buses that wouldn’t have otherwise happened. So, this is wonderful to watch. Thank you for posting this!
Breathtaking. Thank you for this gem.
Thank you for that…how very utterly beautiful. Makes you want to go out for lunch alone instead of the usual big Friday crowd.
This. is. AWESOME!!!!
How utterly beautiful and inspiring. Many, many thanks.
I love this with ALL of my heart. I have made EVERY person in my house listen to it, twice. Her voice his so soothing and her words so profound. Thank you.
This makes me so very happy!
“take yourself out dancing”
This brought tears to my eyes! Thank you so much for posting it.
THANK YOU!!!! I have a touch of social anxiety and my 19 year old has it too. This is so sweet.
Thank you for sharing such inspiring words. This is helpful as my life is entwined with my son who is 16 and non-verbal. When people talk – I feel as if I’m from another planet as we don’t get out much and when we do – I am so immersed with his care to be safe and keep his dignity that I don’t think of much else. You told me that it is ok. The days when I feel as if nothing can get worse – it is ok. Thank you.
we are enough. this is lovely.
Thank you for the nice video.I was seeing this from crowded city in Japan.This video ease my mind.ARIGATOU!!
Loved this! Brought me to tears….. why is it so hard to be alone? Thanks for giving me food for thought!
I loved this video. I am a huge fan of alone time! I really enjoy going to a movie by myself just so I can be with me and enjoy it the way I want to. My best thoughts and ideas and inspirations come to me when I am alone.
Thanks for sharing this!
I love being alone! 🙂
So great. So beautiful.
i really needed this right now. thank you.
So not really on the same topic as your post, but I found this today and I just can’t resist sharing. Mrs. Agathe’s dishwasher quit working so she called a repairman. Since she had to go to work the next day, she told him, “I’ll leave the key under the mat. Fix the dishwasher, leave the bill on the counter, and I’ll mail you the check. Oh, and by the way…don’t worry about my Doberman. He won’t bother you. But, whatever you do, do NOT under ANY circumstances talk to my parrot!” When the repairman arrived at Mrs. Agathe’s apartment the next day, he discovered the biggest and meanest looking Doberman he had ever seen. But just as she had said, the dog simply laid there on the carpet, watching the repairman go about his business. However, the whole time the parrot drove him nuts with his incessant cursing, yelling and name-calling. Finally the repairman couldn’t contain himself any longer and yelled, “Shut up, you stupid ugly bird!” To which the parrot replied, “Get him, Spike!”
