Five Minute Friday: Quiet
It certainly isn't quiet in my house right now. I'm sitting here at the kitchen table starting my day before work. I can hear Phineas and Ferb as if I'm in the room watching it -- how invasive, it floods my mind with annoying sounds. In the background I can hear Sports Center as my husband works from home in his chair. The keyboard clicks as I type and I can hear the white noise of A's fan on the monitor. So even when I'm attempting to find 5 minutes of quiet -- life isn't quiet! It is sensory overload.
I did find some sense of quiet yesterday when I was waiting for my massage -- it is about the only time I allow myself to be quiet -- but then so many thoughts come flooding in my mind and I have to swish them away. I'll start thinking about work, things I need to do at home, ideas for Christmas -- life seeps in even when you want quiet. I'm not good at quiet -- I feel like there always needs to be something. Quiet is hard work and not normal.
