I ain’t small.
I can use a gym voice.
I have spent a plethora of time in gymnasiums and ice rinks.
I love chatting to strangers and hearing others stories.
I have filled a whole bunch of air with my words.
Through the inspiring women currently surrounding me, I am realizing that solitude and silence fills the air with more.
My words matter when there are less of them, leaving space for others.
My being matters when there is less of me “out there”.
Solitude is my sanctuary.
Silence is my place to be.
Seeking solice in space within.
Re-reading books for a second time, which is unheard of for me.
Pondering Henri J.M Nouwen’s words on silence:
“Silence makes us pilgrims.
Silence guards the fire within.
Silence teaches us to speak.
Silence is the mystery of the future world.”
Be seeking solitude.
