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!

The beach…

Standard

I have an indescribable connection to the ocean, a great lake even a babbling brook.  It is where I can breathe life into my thoughts and my soul with just one breath.  I must have been a mermaid in a past life! Spring is here in our part of the world and we were so blessed to enjoy 16 degrees Celsius with warm sunshine today!  I recently took this picture and the warm sunshine today reminded me that summer is just around the corner and will be here before we know it! Days at the beach, in the water and having such a wonderful carefree time! In an effort to stop myself from rushing through every day and enjoy the moment that is spring, I sat on my front porch with the sun shining on my face and meditated for half an hour.  It was so warm and when I opened my eyes I could have sworn I saw clouds smiling. I don’t remember the last time I felt so alive and so full of energy! Life is so beautiful, happy and laughing!

As an after note, I am challenging myself to blog something that makes me happy and laughing every day for 30 days!  🙂
