It’s quiet again in my house.
I am loving the silence. Needing the silence.
It’s causing me to think about silence…
I am not your typical silent-lover traditionally! Usually, if you get in the car after I have gone somewhere alone, the stereo is cranked. And if I am not listening to LOUD music…I tend to be blabbing on the phone! Almost like I am afraid sometimes of just being quiet. Well, all that has changed recently, I can’t remember how long ago… but
I have realized what a gift, what a treasure, silent moments are. Maybe because they are very rare for me.
Life is so loud. Inspiration is so silent.
Even if it’s just allowing your mind to scroll your to-do list… or maybe that complex communication between your sub-conscious with your consciousness…and definitely prayer… it can’t really happen with gwen stephani blaring. (of course there is a time for that!)
I think that my life is so crazy… so much going all the time, that I crave peace. I have realized, that it’s something I can choose. I can turn off the TV, my music… even my phone!!
Can’t turn off quincy… lol. So I can’t try for silent time when she’s around! Seriously, she is a talker, laugher, singer… I think I should have the quiet talk with her! Funny.
Anyway, take some quiet time. you can still do stuff! Fold, clean, exercise, work, scrapbook… try it. you might be trying to tell yourself something.
Listen. I am loving that right now.
