This morning I came down to write my blog. It is one of those mornings where there is plenty I could be grateful for but also plenty I could be stressing over. Yet I sat in silence; the thoughts of my mind still back in bed asleep.
I joke when this happens that if it were a cartoon there would be crickets. And there have been times when the feeling has even stressed me out a little. Yet now I know that it is not an inability to communicate; it is just a pause. And when the mind is used to running like a crazy monkey all day long, sometimes it just has to create its own silence.
I'm grateful to find peace in these moments of silence. I'm grateful for the giggle it gives me to picture myself in a cartoon with crickets chirping. I'm grateful for the relaxation my mind has in these moments. I'm grateful to start the day slow and silent rather than in a jumble of thoughts and to do lists. I'm grateful for the day ahead and to use this calmness to prepare. I'm grateful for all my blessings.
When was the last time you sat in silence? When was the last time your brain joined you and just relaxed?
May today envelope us in calmness. May we live in the moment and cherish it. Have a beautiful day!
