There's something profound about slowing down and eliminating the noise of our daily lives. And I don't mean finches! I mean the noise of our jobs, cell phone, news outlets. Those things that consume our lives but are mostly inconsequential in the long run.
Silence lets us unpack the hard questions. What's my direction, what makes me happy, what's important to me. The questions we normally shove to the back of our minds because they're too hard to answer. Silence lets us access those long overdue files.
Silence is underrated.
