So, are YOU getting enough silence?

Bumping as a reminder to Self because I'm noticing that I'm seeking to AVOID sitting in silence just when I need that the most.

Sitting in that quiet discomfort while all those buried thoughts & emotions just rise higher & higher can feel interminable as well as physically painful but it's SO important.

I need to remember to create space for this in my life regularly right now & stop filling every minute with ongoing, ever-changing distractions (aka Noise).

About the only time I get any silence and can 'almost' guarantee, some privacy, is on the toilet. Even then, DS will call for me, AW will decide that the question she has is urgent, or the dog is whining right outside - because a closed door is just not FAIR to a 100# wussy ball of fur!

I can get silence while driving to/from work, but then it's rush hour and there isn't much 'peace and calm' that can be had

It's just as offensive to a 25# furry feline, I promise. If he can't sit in the sink while I shower in the mornings the world as we know it might just end.
