Action 130 - Enjoy The Silence

It's 5am. The alarm goes off in an hour. I can get up early and start my day, or I can take advantage of unexpected quiet time.

Action 130 - Enjoy The Silence. Instead of leaping into my day, I chose to lay in the darkness and experience the stillness. Instead of thinking of all that lay ahead for me, I chose to listen for the otherwise imperceptible sounds of the night.

I heard the creaking of this very old house. I heard the wind pressing against the window frames. And I heard my husband's slow breathing. Because I was quiet, I was able to hear sounds I would have missed.

This morning, I enjoyed the silence. And I'm now ready to listen to the sounds of the day.
