One thing I’ve learned to appreciate more than anything is silence.
When I’m out here in the middle of nowhere, I hear a lot of it after the sun goes down. All of the tractors and big equipment have been parked for the night, the wind begins to settle, the birds go to sleep.
I turn everything off in the house and hear … nothing.
It’s an incredible sound, filled with peace and contentment.
There was a day when I had to have noise … white noise, television, music … noise. It shut out worry and stress.
But now, I appreciate nothing more than the stillness of the world around me.
When was the last time you sat in the absolute quiet of the moment?
