The happy sound of silence

Standard

Today, I had the most awesome blessing of enjoying a day filled with silence.  Oprah once said: “Alone time is when I distance myself from the voices of the world so I can hear my own”.  The house was so quiet I could hear even the most subtle creak or drip.  It was a prime opportunity to spend the day in meditation and self-reflection.  I have never (until today) spent a better part of the day in silence.  I feel so relaxed and calm but most of all I have come to realize a better sense of direction for my life which not too long ago was at a crossroads.  I enjoyed beautiful visions during meditation and was compelled to create afterward.  I have included a pic of that creation.  Looking at it a little while later, I realize it is my life; a life more serene, more alive and one that is coming out of the woods, confident in the dreams I am compelled to pursue. A perfect day… I feel so happy!

About Irene Savakis

I am a fun-loving mama of 4 amazing kidlets and I am on a mission to find something that makes me happy or brings me joy every day and to share that with you! Incidentally, the title of the blog came from my oldest daughter when she was almost 3. It had been many sleepless nights and 3 out of 4 in diapers was taking its toll. She cradled my face in her little hands and asked: “Mamma, are you happy and laughing?”. Needless to say, that expression has stuck and we still use it today, over 10 years later. On a personal note, I love to write, paint and scrapbook…I love being creative. It is the one place where I can journey into myself and find peace in my world. I come back rejuvenated. Incidentally, Irene is of Greek origin meaning peace…funny, I am most happy when I have peace in my heart and all around me. Thanks for stopping by…
