Are You Lonesome Tonight?

"Are You Lonesome Tonight?”  is the 7th in my 2017Tom's Summer Shorts series of holiday press releases sent from my happy home in the sunny south of Portugal


Are you lonesome tonight? Do you know what is loneliness? Do you know the difference between being physically alone and being mentally alone?

That last question is the real teaser, it's one that many people struggle with because they really cannot differentiate between the two. To them physically alone is equal to mentally alone is equal to loneliness and the inertia of energy which comes with it.

The standard fix for this is to 'socialise', going to pubs and restaurants where there are lots of people, noise and activity which they suppose will invigourate them and fill the void in their lives. And up to a point this works. But there's a difficulty with this approach too. Because if anything it simply makes matters worse!

Continuous superficial physical company devoid of any real and meaningful, close or emotional contact simply deepens the scar in your well-being, increases the distress. You don't feel secure, safe or understood through it. It takes its toll on your spiritual character.

So it's necessary to understand that being alone isn't necessarily a bad thing. You need to recognise the good which solitude can do to create ease within yourself. And anyway, you may not need as much social contact as you think you do! And certainly not of the superficial, meaningless kind. Most of the time you can do just fine when alone. And the rest of the time seek out opportunities and relationships which will satisfy your more profound emotional and intellectual needs.

When thus satisfied you are self aware and relaxed, with a balanced psyche at ease with both solitude and society. You'll tend to shun the superficial and embrace life's simple pleasures. You'll be a better person for it. And the question of “Are you lonesome tonight?” need never arise again.

Your input is appreciated so please comment on “Are You Lonesome Tonight?”



It took me some years to establish myself in business but I believe that in life only the most resolute of tryers will prevail and after several years of a bank account in a permanent state of cardiac arrest my perseverance began to pay!

I became a successful Business Consultant, Investment Adviser and award-winning Salesperson and Marketing Professional and I coined the term 'Creative Solutions' to describe my work in devising and implementing innovative approaches to situations in business, commerce and industry (some call it touble-shooting). From my successes I grew my own group of small companies.

By later years I had realised that sheer sweat and toil did not represent the smartest or swiftest routes to wealth. Entrepreneurs, I observed, had always existed able to create fortunes from little apparent effort and I became increasingly fascinated by this phenomenon. I set out to emulate this approach and such was my success that I could 'retire' at an early age to the tranquility and calm of south west France. I later moved on to southern Portugal.

CONTACT ME – I'll be thrilled to hear from you!

The life of which you dream is HERE within your grasp!
