It is very rare in the world today for anyone to understand silence. However, as I sit on the front porch and stare off at the river, I noticed something strange for maybe 20 seconds, silence!
Not a bird chirpping, an airplane speeding over, a car zooming down the road or even a barge slipping down the river. Absolute silence!
It took me a few seconds to understand what was going on, but when I did I received ten seconds or more of, shhhhhhhh…
It was phenomenal.
When those rare moments appear (which I can’t imagine anyone wanting them more than a few seconds) pause…stay still and enjoy the simplicity of life.
These rare times allow me to reset, refocus and restart.
I realize life becomes hectic, frustrating and scary at times. However, it will always provide you with an opportunity to redirect. Life is meant to enjoy.
Yes, there will be down times or as I call them valleys. But remember while in the valley look for a few seconds clumped together, where the universe says, “Just for you we are going to pause and exhale. This is for you to take a deep breath in and exhale.”
