Genuine Quiet


I am in need of some quiet today.  

I'm anxiously awaiting the moment where I can sit around and just listen to my heart.  A moment to sit with a journal and write, write, write.  An afternoon to go to the library or bookstore and look for the perfect book to read.  A day to take the kids to the park and maybe have a picnic.  A day at the beach to dig my feet into wet sand and have the waves splash around me...this is the quiet I need.

I have a forever long to-do list of blog posts to write, job duties at work, finals to study for, things to remember before the kids' school ends and I just want to be quiet for a moment.  I want to relish in the hush before I have to tackle it all.  

I'd love some time to just sit with a coffee and breath a little.  I was searching for some words of wisdom this morning and found it.  Those words were exactly what I am trying to convey today.  Just a little quiet to get everything in order before the freedom of summer begins.

I hope your day is a breath of fresh air.  I wish you a moment of quiet in your bustling day where you can devour the genuine quiet we all crave.

Until that moment comes, I'm going back to being a responsible adult and get some work done. 

Bummer. {wink}

  1. Being a responsible adult is overrated sometimes ;) Why did we want to grow up so fast again?

  5. Beautiful. I hope you do manage to get a moment of genuine quiet - it's amazing how much of a difference even 5 minutes to yourself with no distractions can make.

  8. I thrive on quiet moments! I know a lot of people need social interaction and to be around people to really energize themselves, but those quiet moments where I can just think or write or be creative are pure bliss for me. I haven't had one in the past few months and I'm already planning that time for this weekend and cannot wait for it! Hope you find your silence soon :)

  13. I can completely relate!! Between my 2 crazy kids, my photography business and my Rizzmic instructor training, I feel like I don't have a moment alone all day to just sit with my thoughts! I would give anything for a "quiet day"!

  14. Gosh. What I wouldn't give for like a WEEK of quiet. But I'd use it to get all caught up in everything thats stressing me out. Growing up stinks! I think we should get matching 'don't grow up, it's a trap shirts'.

    Hoping you find that quiet soon. We all need it to stay sane. Love you girl.

  15. For me quiet might be the most stressful thing. I feel like my mind is always going 90 miles a minute, always anticipating the next post, the next outing, etc. Maybe I need to slow down.

  16. Sometimes I am really mad at myself for growing up. Who wants to be an adult anyway!?

  17. I just wish we could all have a day, where we can sit in quiet. I really need to find a balance to life where I can just sit, relax and do nothing. I'm at a constant 100 mph at all times and never sit down.

Hey Lovey! You're commenting! You just made me happier than...well, me with a Chestnut Praline Latte. (Yes, now you know what to order for me if we ever go to Starbucks - lol)
