When Life Is Quiet

When Life is Quiet by KD

When life is quiet
And the phone doesn’t ring
It may feel as if the birds do not sing
Remember you’re not alone

When life is quiet
By your own design
You’ve purposely left some things behind
Remember you’re not alone

When life is quiet
And friends let you down
You look, but they are not to be found
Remember you’re not alone

For in the quiet of life
We learn to hear again
We learn to see again
We remember the sound of our own voice
We remember who we are
We become re-focused
We cry tears long held in
We release burdens long weighing us down
We heal

There are times in our lives when things become cluttered… kind of like our garage or our basement or that one junk drawer or cabinet.  We accumulate things, feelings, attitudes, ways of doing things, habits, that may just be taking up extra space in our lives. There may be things that are not-so-healthy for us that we may need to cut out.  There may be other things we just need to scale back on. We may need to re-discipline ourselves to use our time and talents more wisely.  Perhaps there are people with whom we are attached, that at first may have been okay, but now, we realize ‘hey, this may not be the healthiest of situations’.  Or perhaps the season for which you’ve joined with that person/those people has passed or is now altered somehow.  Whatever the case may be, it’s always good to do a periodic reset.  Maybe it’s turning of your cell for a while, detoxing yourself from social media, or taking more time to sit / think / pray / meditate.  Maybe for you, it’s literally cleaning out the clutter in your home, car or office.  But, whatever you need to do and however you go about it, take time to do this for yourself.

It’s always good to make sure you re-assess where you are on a consistent basis (maybe just once a year, or more frequently if you feel the need).  When we re-assess and reset, things tend to become clearer, cleaner, less foggy.  Perhaps you may only need to readjust a few small things.  Or maybe you’ll need to do a major overhaul.  Whatever the case may be, when we clear out the clutter, we can better see what direction to take next… whether to continue on the same path, but, with clearer purpose…or to begin on a new path.

I hope & pray that as you seek to reset, that you will find clarity of purpose and vision.
