For a girl who sets the timer on the dishwasher so as not to hear it, and a girl who keeps the television at mice-like-decibels; a girl who goes into a different part of the house when the washer/dryer are running, and a girl who thinks that taking a bath would be perfect if only the water didn't make so much noise... it has been a noisy year.
I've turned up the volume.
Bought new speakers so as to make it even louder.
Bought a mega bass to amplify the commotion.
2009 has been deafening.
A welcome sound in my new journey.
Anything to keep me from...
So, 2010, here we are.
You and me.
Deejay's not playing the same song.
2010 -- Resolve.
Time to mute the clamor. Say no. Disappoint.
Walk away. Let go. Close doors.
Select you. Select one. Select calm. Select quiet. Select games, crafts, laughing, reading, cuddling, patience, joy.
Pause. Be patient. Wonder. Pray. Reflect. Slow down... slow it down girl.
Then do it again. Slower. With more kindness. Kindness for the girl you once were, the woman you are yet to become.
Have fun. Shake it up. Relax. Dance. Smile. Play.
Get to know your source. YOUR source. YOUR soul. YOUR God. YOUR strength. YOUR peace.
Praying for a quiet melody in 2010.
