DO: enjoy some silence

My head has been going crazy lately – moments of silence mere specks in large expanses of the days and nights. I do it to myself, I know. I’m always stuffing more into a day – going here and then going there – chasing my to-do lists with franticness in my chest. The ability to be calm has not been coming naturally. My head has been LOUD with fears, dreams, questions, and so much more. When the rare gift of silence makes an appearance, a euphoria washes over my brain.

It shows up in rare forms: an intimate moment with my nose stuck in magazine, a child’s pose on my bedroom floor, or a warm hug from one of my friends. I call it silence because of the stillness in my brain. It seems to fill the vessels, slowly traveling through my veins and transferring to the rest of my body. It’s a much needed sensation that feels so carnally necessary for survival. My heart needs it.

Whatever these moments are for you – recognize and cherish them.

You have no idea how much I crave silence! Sadly, between my active 1-year-old and the neighbours upstairs (they have a 2-year-old who enjoys running laps) who listen to loud pulsing music… silence is a rarity around here.

There is so much truth to this! It is good to hear the honest truth, even if it may seem out if the common norm. Or out of the common norm to admit to. I feel people these days are embracing the fast pace life and not sitting, looking, questioning what is really going on. Embrace silence, look around, contemplate nature, look within and many wonderful things will start to happen! and when you get there to your true self meditate!!!
