Sitting still

 Precious few are the moments I find these days for quiet and meditation.  Most often, those moments are stolen in the early hours of the morning, when the animals and human inhabitants of our home are fast asleep.  It is in these quiet hours I can lean in to my soul, embrace the quiet, and reflect on the importance of stillness in my life.  Many individuals find discomfort in quiet and solitary time.  I do not, for it is there that I come to know myself, who I am.

As I move forward in to the busy week, I have an image in my mind.  An image of stillness.  I carry it with me to remind me of what it feels like to slow down, take a breath, and stare quietly until I can see my inner peace.

Have a good week, everyone.
