Life with the Sound Off

Life can be loud at times. It can be so loud that we get distracted, lose sight of where we are going and what we are trying to do, and soon find ourselves completely off course. Wouldn’t it be easier if we could press “mute”? What if we could just turn the sound off and get back to neutral?

While we will never be able to tune everything completely out in a literal sense, we can still very much take breaks and live a life of silence for a little while. The amazing thing is that we can do so in many ways and in ways that best suit us. Some of us like to get lost in a book or good music. Some of us like to go for walks or maybe draw in a sketch book. Maybe we find our silence in a conversation with a close friend or during a work out. My point is that we can literally find this anywhere and it is good for the soul.

What is my challenge to you? Do not let life’s chaos de-rail your direction and what you are trying to do. It is very easy to get side-tracked and distracted to the point where you lose yourself. Do not let that happen. Find your quiet. Love your silence. Live for the moments that can bring you back to the path you want to be on. We have such a short time on this earth in the grand scheme of things, so it is best to spend your life doing things which will bring the best out of you.

I hope this new year is treating everyone well so far and that you all are truly looking for ways to create a better life for yourself. While there may be so much going wrong with the world right now, there is so much good beneath the surface. Find your good and keep moving forward.
