Do you ever feel like you’ve just run out of things to say?
Like the words are out there, in this nebulous cloud, just kind of swirling and spinning round and round, baby, right round, like a record baby…
… but they’re just beyond your reach? Taunting you, like a bad 80’s song? You want to get it out of your head, but you just… can’t.
Do you ever feel this way?
Nope, me neither. I was just checking.
Actually, I’m lying. Cause that’s exactly how I’m feeling lately.
There are so many voices out there. Talking. Singing. Shouting. Pontificating. So many words. So much to say. So, so much. Indeed.
A lot of it is really helpful. And some of it is just plain noise. Or worse.
And believe you me, I’m right there with all the wordsters, wanting to get my own words out there. Cause, you know, they’re so important. You need to hear them.
But lately, I’m feeling that maybe it’s time to listen more than talk. Crazy, I know.
Do you ever feel this way? Yes, I already asked that (can’t get anything past you Misfits!). But now I’m being serious. Cause I hope you do. Feel this way, that is. Cause I think it’s good, every once in a while, to have nothing to say.
Sometimes we just need to shaddup and listen. And by listen, I don’t mean to merely subject ourselves willy nilly to the cacophany of all the noise out there. We don’t really hear anything when we do that. Just a lot of blablabla…
I’m talking about being that thing all the bloggety bloggers these days like to call intentional. That is, to remove ourselves from the noise, ON PURPOSE, so we can actually hear what’s important.
And what’s important? Well, I guess that’s why we need to listen- to find out.
What does that look like? Hard to say. I imagine it’ll be different for you than for me. I don’t know what your noisy life is like. But I bet there’s a way you can turn the volume down a bit. The fun part is figuring it out. Good luck with that! Or, to put it in more spiritual terms: godspeed, my friend.
So yeah, that’s about all I have to say today. Which I know, is not much.
But maybe it’s better than words for the sake of words.
Let me know what you hear.
I’ll do the same.
