be still




Be still.

Breathe in.

Breathe out.

Don’t ask questions. Don’t give answers. Don’t think. Don’t speak.

Be still.

Seems we don’t always have time to stop, these days.

And when we’re forced to – stop – we get impatient. Like wherever we are going, is so much more important than where we are. So we’re waiting in line, or we’re stuck in traffic, and we’re looking at our phone, or twitching impatiently – because we’re uncomfortable being still.

What’s with that?

We’re in this age where we always have to be ‘on’ or ‘available’. We’re always connected, and yet we are more disconnected than we have ever been.

When do we take time to just breathe it all in? When do we take time to sit with ourselves and just contemplate, drift off, wonder and daydream? And when do we get to experience those grand ideas that were once born of boredom?

While we are standing in that queue, or waiting in that traffic jam we are being afforded time to stop, and be still. We are being given time to notice the little things (they are really big things).

Time is a gift.

If we let the peace of any given moment wash over us we might notice a stranger smiling, a child laughing, we might inadvertently avoid catastrophe, meet the love of our life… or we might just get to indulge in stillness, peace and our own happiness.

So stop.


Be still.

Breathe in.

Breathe out.

About a lifetime of lessons

Inspired by life. I love challenges and new experiences. On the brink of an adventure to discover, and rediscover... In the year of my thirtieth birthday I decided to throw in my job, put my money on red and take the gamble of a lifetime... a one way ticket... This blog documents my journey. Feel free to visit whenever you like, comment and follow my travels here :) View all posts by a lifetime of lessons
