The Art of Silence

Weekly Photo Challenge – Silence

Winter is the season of silence.  It is a time I am able to easily quiet my mind and listen to my soul.  I enjoy extra time for silent reflection…a time for stillness.


Yesterday, I was especially pulled to be out in nature.  With temperatures in the 20s and  25 mph winds, where did I feel drawn to journey?  The shores of Lake Michigan…

The Gift Of Gratitude: Silence

Today celebrates Day 3 of my 31 Days of Gratitude. Each Sunday, my post is titled “Be Still”.  To continue with that theme, my gift of Gratitude for Day 3 is Silence.

As much as I am passionate about communication, I do need silence to quiet my mind.  When life brings confusion and turmoil, the best solution is to just stop, do nothing and be still, allowing life to unfold as it is meant to be.  Embrace the silence and trust in your journey.
