So, I've taken a vow of silence. Everyone keeps asking me how it was, what did I learn, etc... I don't really have an answer. It went well, I guess. It wasn't really an experience that can be explained or described with words. Especially due to the fact that this past week I was rather wordless. I will say that is was more of a challenge than I expected. I talk more than I realized. Most times the things I say are unnecessary and only used to take up seemingly empty space. I'm not used to sitting with other people in the thick of silence. I felt uncomfortable and present in a brand new way. This week has shown me that I can do anything I set my mind to and the fact that people may think me crazy for it is none of my business.
I spoke at least once everyday of my vow of silence. The hardest day was Saturday. I had become a bit exhausted with it all and was verbally answering questions asked by my sister before I knew it. She laughed it off & I didn't make it a thing. That's one thing I made sure to remember, if I speak don't make it a thing. I was very forgiving of myself during this process, very lenient, very understanding. The further along in life I progress, the deeper I fall in love with myself. Not only do I absolutely love myself but I like myself a lot too. I am really proud of myself for making sure not only is my physical health on track but also my mental and spiritual health as well.
My goal is to be physically, mentally, and spiritually prepared for the blessings God has for me. I am well on my way and loving every minute of the journey.
