How often do we take time to be silent ?
I ask that question because I can personally answer that by saying … very rarely do I listen to the sound of silence.
With the recent pandemic and riots and everything else that has been happening in our world … it seems like I’m constantly hearing noise.
As I was talking to a friend … on Marco Polo to be socially distant, she mentioned how she had put her kids to bed, and then went out on her porch to just sit on silence to just think without the noise and distractions of technology and everything else.
When she said that she just craved the silence … I realized … she was meant to tell me this.
Because as isolating and hard as the pandemic has been for us and I’m sure many others … I have come to understand that we all CRAVE that silence.
We live in a fast paced world and when do we ever get a minute to just think and sit and be still?
However, I know it’s crucial to remember that taking a moment to get lost in our thoughts —actually recharges us and gives us that “lift” we all need.
In fact, I’ll be honest that I feel guilty when I just sit in silence because I have so many things on the “to-do” list.
So June’s Goal for the month… is to take time for silence.
Enjoy the quiet stillness around you.
Take a minute to breathe and relax.
It’s a challenge to make a habit of this “silent time,” and yet, I can see the benefit.
I hope you yourself can take time for “the sound of silence.”
In the end, you may realize just how much you too “crave” that time to get lost in thought.
I hope to update you on how my monthly goal goes.
Until next time,
