Little moments of clarity

Woke up today feeling pretty good and eager to go for a walk. I was up long before everyone else and I’m sitting in my living room, enjoying the quiet.

I’ve been preaching about self-care for years because it’s so vitally important. I try to focus on self-care in my own life on a daily basis. There are times however, where I experience these moments of clarity, and today was one of those moments.

It’s not that I don’t recognize or appreciate the importance of self-care, but today as I sat on my couch, in total silence, I was very much in the moment. The peace and quiet was captivating. I appreciated being able to hear my own thoughts, without all the usual distraction.

It was a fantastic way to start the day. I was just talking to someone about this recently. I used to be so uncomfortable with silence. If someone was quiet, I always felt like something was wrong and it would freak me out. Arguably, that does hold true sometimes, but that doesn’t mean that silence is a bad thing.

I’ve been learning to appreciate silence and not always assume it’s a sign that someone is upset. Honestly, why can’t people just exist in silence sometimes? We don’t always have to speak. It’s okay to just be…. 

I’m learning to just be. It’s a work in progress but but having the ability to simply be present is a positive thing. I typically have a lot to say and I feel like being able to be present in the moment, without a need to always be talking, but rather appreciating who I’m with or where I am, is an amazing thing.

Anyway, in summary……

I’m doing good and the pain is dwindling. I’m stealing a few moments of peace and quiet for myself this morning. I’m learning to appreciate the magic of silence and I feel like I’m moving forward on my journey towards personal growth.

Have a great day folks. Take some time for yourself, you deserve it.
