I love the sound of music, of children laughing, of cheers at a sporting event. Hearing life is an amazing thing. I also really appreciate the stillness of a quiet moment to reflect and hear my own thoughts. To contemplate something greater – something spiritual around me and within me. To hear the wisdom that brings clarity to a problem. To look around at the beauty of creation, to see what surrounds me, to look at the details that I often overlook, to be aware of my feelings. Being able to remain in the silence can be a way to let go and accept what is.
I am grateful for my walk yesterday, where I turned off the headphones, and took in the silence. I felt refreshed, gained some new insights, and enjoyed the beautiful fall day. May I remember to step away from life’s busyness periodically to take a moment to breathe in what is around me….
