When everyone is busy putting up their year-end summary, next year’s goals, party plans, holiday pictures, just take a moment to pause, breathe and embrace silence.
A few moments of quiet are all you need in life at times.
When it all seems too overwhelming and when you can’t avoid the noise, just pause and embrace silence.
When you’re confused, embrace silence.
When you’re lost, embrace silence.
Silence is neither a lack of noise nor isolation. It’s an empty space for your mind to recover clarity.
You hear the best when you’re silent.
Silence has a lot to say, a lot to talk to you, about you, what you want and what you do not want.
It’s just that amidst all the noise around us, all the humdrum, we end up focussing more on others, what they are doing and what they are not. We start defining our wants and needs based on other parameters and yardsticks.
You won’t understand the power of silence unless you experience it.
I have experienced it, have been practicing it every day for long and I can tell you that it is indeed one of the best gifts that we can give to ourselves.
When was the last time you pressed the pause button in your life? In case it’s been long, do it now and gift yourself some moments of silence.
On that note, wish you all a happy new year. See you on the other side of the decade. Have a fabulous 2020!
