Noise Noise Noise!! Too much noise. Everywhere you look all around you there is noise. Do this, do that, no peace, no quiet, no silence. You can't think, you can't hear, you can't listen. You can't just take a moment to smell the roses, listen to the birds sing, relax and read the paper or a good book or do absolutely nothing and just be because there is just too much noise.
The interesting thing is that the noise is of our own making because somehow we believe that if we stopped for a moment the whole world would stop revolving, nothing would get done, we would cease to exist, the house wouldn't get cleaned etc. But if you dropped dead from exhaustion, or got sick and was laid up for a while what do you think would happen?
Here's a question for you: what do you want to do right now at this very moment? Do you feel guilty about it? That somehow if you take a moment for yourself you are wrong? That you should be caring and doing for others? That just taking a moment is selfish on your part? Jesus himself said "love your neighbor as yourself." How can we love and do for others if we don't know how to do it for ourselves?
Take my very foolish and simplistic advice it’s okay to just BE! To listen to the birds sing, to read a good book or watch a favorite tv show, to sing, to laugh, to dance or just do nothing. After all the only place that there is no noise is in the grave and no one wants to go there prematurely and that’s where all the noise and the stress and the unhappiness will lead you to is an early grave.
Life is too short ENJOY IT and JUST BE!
