Stillness 

There is a maturity that comes with knowing when to be quiet. When to be still. And sometimes in that stillness is when the greatest answers come.

There are things that I have put down for a time because me plate is just too full. Or maybe it’s because I felt I had to put them down as I questioned what I wanted or needed. Wanting to do them but just not having the energy or time. Or maybe I was influenced from outside forces. Likely it was all of those things.

Whatever the reason, it gave me the opportunity to pause, to be still, to be quiet and listen.

But I keep being drawn to that space. That voice inside me telling me that this is what I need to do. And in doing this, other parts of my life will fall into place.

Reminds me of one of my favorite parts of the Bible.

Matthew 11:28-30

 “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”

I love that, for my yoke is easy and my burden is light. Resting, has given me clarity. Turning down the noise has given me the opportunity to rest, to see more clearly and to define my goals and direction.

Feeling grateful for this time of reflection and rest.

My journey to serenity continues…
