Hi everyone! Wishing all of you a happy Sunday!
My life has been very quiet recently, probably the quietest it has ever been. I did not choose to have it, I was forced, but it is honestly a good phase after the many turmoil I had to go through some months back. Surprisingly, I really like the quietness. Normally, I am an active person. I like moving around, talking to people, just doing things in general. So, I would never think that I would enjoy the silence and quietness I have now. I am not only enjoying it but I am literally making it more so so that I can get the most out of this phase.
Silence and quietness are powerful. It gives you the biggest insights about yourself, your life and life in general. With distractions gone, the mind has now the time and energy to focus on these bigger points. This opening then opens new doors in life. A good kind of cycle comes with it. But it is challenging to be in that state because we are not used to it anymore. It requires a lot of patience. Maybe you can guess, I am not a very patient person. This process, however, made me a lot more patient with people and events and processes. I think the biggest thing I learnt from this year is patience and I am very happy about it. I am thankful to this silent time for this learning.
Have you experienced phases of silence and quietness in your life, either voluntarily or by force? If so, what did you gain from it? Let’s talk about quietness and silence today and give a voice to them.
