HEY! Be Quiet. Easier said than done right?
Constantly everyday we are bombarded with noises. Right now I a listening to a cell phone ring, boxes being moved by a UPS man, voices in the other room, the clicking of my computer and even my own breathing.
Let me be the first to admit, that I am the world's absolute worst at being still, being quiet and being by myself. The ex-bf use to say (in a joking manner) that I was high strung. But maybe, just maybe....I AM.
So how do I get there? How do I remove myself from all the noise? How do I be still? How in the world do I stay still?
(and not fall asleep?)
But once you remove yourself from all the noise, then the self starts talking. Once I learn how to still myself, I must then still my brain. I believe that an idle brain is dead brain. I believe one's mind is more powerful than any tool or weapon one could ever hold. My mind is constantly one step ahead of my feet and my mouth. It is on to the next adventure where as I have yet to finish the first. I don't think this is ideal health either. With my mind constantly racing forward, I sometimes miss the moment, the here and now.
Perhaps, this is my fault in relationships. I am constantly thinking about the next thing that we are going to do together, that I don't enjoy what we are doing then.
Im going to make like molasses....and slow down. The world is racing by, but do I have to? I have one life to live and I AM GOING TO LIVE IT!!
I am going to love myself. Take up yoga. Lay in the grass and smell the air. Pray every chance I get. Swim for four hours. But I am also going to learn. Read. Soak in all the knowledge that I can. Dream Big. LOVE GRAND. Be me. Follow Him. and Believe
So when all the noise stops and I breath my last breath I will know that its ok to
