Simplify: Let My Words Be Few
January 15, 2017
I have to be honest. I hesitate to even write on this particular topic because I feel like I am such a failure at 'letting my words be few'. Holding my tongue. Taking a moment to think before I speak. Practicing silence.
How about you? Am I in the vast majority or a minority? Moving a bit out of town has definitely helped to simplify our lives and afford more time for reflection. See our story of our pursuit of simple. Our drives are longer in and out of town which provide more time to think. We have to keep up with the acreage which means walking it, mowing it, etc. Being outside and noticing nature is always good medicine for decreasing the chatter too. Also as silly as it sounds, having spotty internet has encouraged more time devoted to embracing the stillness and silence that brings such refreshing and reward.
In my quest to make my words fewer this new year, I'd like to share a few benefits that come with practicing the discipline of silence.
