Silence Is Pushing the Off Button

Taking time to yourself may be just what you need at times.


dwelling in the quiet moment.

the stillness of silence.

alone with my thoughts.

and savoring every minute of it.

Sometimes we rush throughout the day without ever taking the time to pause for a moment.  We go from one thing to another and never just sit quietly. When is the last time you took the time to just sit alone with your thoughts? Without any distractions…

When is the last time you took just a brief moment to yourself to recollect  your thoughts or simply meditate?

We live in a fast world so I understand that having a moment to yourself is almost impossible, especially  if you are a parent.

I take advantage of nap times. I’m  sure other moms are with me on this: nap time is bliss.

Sometimes life gets  frustrating. Plans change. People annoy you. Kids drive you nuts. Work stresses you out.

Those quiet moments have become so important for my sanity. My sacred moment of just pure silence. Sometimes I read. Sometimes I sing. Sometimes I write, but these days I just sit quietly.

You don’t  have to  be at home. It can be at work. School. Your car. Wherever.  Just do it…turn down the noise and be quiet.

        Quiet is peace. Tranquility. Quiet is turning down the volume knob on life. Silence is pushing the off button. Shutting it down. All of it. – Amir
