Noise Pollution, Thought Pollution, Air Pollution…. Can we have less unwanted conversation and sound? Can we let go of thoughts that are counter productive? Can we take a moment and breathe? Some people call the answer a VACATION, but most vacations are spent running twice as hard. SO WHEN DOES LIFE SLOW DOWN? NEVER…Take time to…Make time to.. appreciate what a quiet room feels like. Take time to put away your smartphone and it’s amazing functions. Take time to just appreciate little things around you.

Zoe (my little one) has a way of bringing that out of me. She likes to sit on the porch and count rocks. Sit on the kitchen floor and eat an ice cream. At least once a week she grabs every blanket in the house and invites everyone in her room to watch Shrek…

SO I decided to take time to appreciate the little things.. The first step is to make myself stop for a few minutes a day and receive the world around me. I turn everything off. Then I begin to receive the world around me. I block all thoughts. I listen to myself breathe. I listen to the sounds from around me. Birds, vehicles, wind. Try it for one week. Turn Down The Noise In Your Life.
