“Your world is so loud” I heard echo in my head as i sunk deeper into my bath filled to capacity with steaming hot water, Epsom salt for aching joints and essential oils for an overstimulated nervous system.
That’s when I heard. I heard me; I heard my breathing, i heard my joints creak, i heard my heart beating, i heard my thoughts. I heard me and that’s also when i heard her.
But i’ve been sipping my tonic labeled BUSY in big, red letters and ignoring all of the buzzing coming from that room inside of me. Tonight, as I shut everyone else out, I listened to my own thoughts. My own breathing. My own heart. And all that noisy buzzing came together to harmonize into an orchestra of intention for the coming year.
