Challenge Me: Day #15 (Silence)

Silence is such an underrated quality of life. In a world where everything is shared, photographed, and more, silence is becoming a lost art. I’m not talking about the “negative” silence (remaining silent in the face of oppression, both literally and figuratively). I’m talking about that stone cold silence. That silence you “hear” when you’re laying in your bed about to count sheep. Or the silence you encounter during a nice walk on the beach.

I’m thankful to have had the opportunity to peacefully sit in silence on my way home. I forgot what it felt like to not have music playing or talking on the phone. I felt like I took a moment to breathe a bit. To take in the sounds of the world around me: horns honking, my tires traversing the California interstates. It was a peaceful drive. Most importantly, I got to talk to the Most High. I’m not proud of it, but my spiritual connection with the Most High hasn’t been at the greatest level, but I’m trying. I realize that I have to find ways to make room for Him the same way I make room for friends and family. Hell, even making the sacrifice to finish papers. This journey is not only teaching me to pay more attention to the small details, its showing me that I have a lot of work to do. Work that I can only do with the Most High as my guide…
