I have zero thoughts today. None, nada, zip. It's like my brain is recovering from dairy shock or something. I'm all calm and focused. I don't understand that state, LOL.
And I've been reading. I miss reading. For awhile, I was in the mood for NOTHING, and I mean nothing.
Ever go through that?
Brett Battles' book, The Deceived, seems to have gotten me out of that rut real quick.
So off I go to read.
I'll leave you with these lyrics. Sometimes with all the noise in my head about shoulds and coulds, all the noise on the internet, all the noise everywhere, I start to lose my center.
Do you ever feel like that? Like you just need some time alone, really alone, without a single voice around you for days? Just so you can hear yourself?
This song has the PERFECT lyrics:
I need a place where I can go,
Where I can whisper what I know,
Where I can whisper who I like
And where I go to see them.
I need a place where I can hide,
Where no one sees my life inside,
Where I can make my plans, and write them down
So I can read them.
A place where I can bid my heart be still
And it will mind me.
A place where I can go when I am lost,
And there I'll find me.
I need a place to spend the day,
Where no one says to go or stay,
Where I can take my pen and draw
The girl I mean to be.
Here's the song, if you'd like a listen:
