“A quiet mind is able to hear intuition over fear.” Yvan Byeajee

Our house is often loud and chaotic, so when I have moments of quiet, I appreciate them all the more.

Even when it’s messy and my kids snacked on chips for breakfast and then left their mess sitting on the floor in the living room, I’m so very thankful for the quiet.

It feels like my life mirrors itself, internally and externally. Often, it’s chaotic inside my brain, with thoughts swirling and whirling. I have big dreams and plans and I’m often mulling over how I can possibly accomplish them, or anxiety runs rampant and I’m trying to reign it all in; but when everything settles and it’s quiet……I can just be.

Then I sit and breathe and wait.

What are you grateful for today?

One thought on “Quiet”

  1. I too appreciate the quiet. I didn’t used to, but since becoming a parent, I have!

    Today was tricky for me to think of something to be thankful for. I had a rough morning with my kids and feel like the worst mother ever.

    But as I was making eggs for breakfast, I thought the sooner that I think of something to be thankful for, the sooner I can move on from my rough morning. I love salsa with my eggs and we happen to have “mango” salsa right now, so today I am thankful for mango salsa. Soooo yummy.
