I woke up with a migraine.. Ugh!! Took some Imitrex and went back to sleep.. I didn’t leave the house until 11;30am and reached my destination about 12pm. Just the drive without the radio, no music was wonderful. Hearing the sounds coming from the outdoors such as traffic, people, birds, planes, etc…. gave me a sense of freedom.. Like I was on an adventure.. A journey ❤
When I arrived at the park, I walked deep into the woods. I no longer heard traffic but I did hear some children in the distant.. I must go further. The weather is perfect and the sounds of nature are mesmerizing. When I came to a choice of trails, I took the one that appeared least traveled. Then I walked and walked and walked.. Note to self: Next silence in the woods, bring a blanket to sit on 🙂
Like I said, the sense of freedom was exhilarating. I worried some for my furbaby Smokey I left at home. But I knew he was OK and I just redirected my thoughts when they popped in my head.. Knowing that I was completely alone, ALL ALONE! No kids, No animals, no one to be responsible for or “look out” for made me feel something that I have rarely EVER felt.. And I liked it. I loved it! And yes, I want some more of it 😉
3:00pm- Pure Serenity, Total Bliss, Perfect Harmony! Need I say more? This will definitely be added on my monthly to-do list..
I got a lot accomplished today.. I know I was in silence but freeing my mind of all the bullshit that usually occupies it, I was able to THINK… and with that I had all sorts of ideas that popped in my head.. Ideas for my business, for my home, for my family. I made sure to write each down as they came to me. I done a lot of soul searching.. Although I didn’t have any “spiritual” experiences, or any “dragons” come out, I can see these things happening in near future.
I went home and continued my silence (the best I could given the circumstances) and continued until about 2pm on Saturday. I will admit, I found myself unable to sleep with no TV. Something I need to work on, but should I really feel the need to cut it out? I LOVE falling asleep to the sounds of the Golden Girls.. I sleep easier, faster and wake up feeling refreshed so is it really a “bad” thing after all?
To sum it all up? It was an experience that I definitely needed in my life. I woke up my senses, cleared my mind and gave me a fresh new outlook on life. I look forward to the next one ❤
