A Ubiquitous Story – Speak up!
Have an inspired week!
How do you show silence? Do you even practice a day or hour of silence? Do share! Thank you.
This post was inspired by a prompt from WP Daily Post: Writing Challenge: The Sound Of Silence: Need some more ideas? There are multiple ways of interacting with silence: purposefully leaving something unsaid, breaking the silence around a topic, or, quite simply, getting tongue-tied. For this week’s challenge, we want you to take the theme of silence and explore it in your own way.
Positive Motivation Tip: Silence can be deafening… Even worse than loud noise. Find that space of true silence and rest there.
