So, I had laryngitis one week. It was kind of funny. I love talking so much – more than anyone I know. I was joking with some friends that Jesus wanted me to be quiet. Shameful confession: I was not good at being quiet. At all. All day I was so frustrated! How could I lose my voice? I was sick already. I thought “really God?”. Losing your voice when you are feeling sucky is zero fun.
Okay… Whining over.
I need to learn how to be still. Sometimes I think this is a good idea to be taken literally. To stop and do nothing from time to time. As a society we are obsessed with productivity. We have lost what it means to rest methinks! Resting is so important. We all need mental massages from time to time.
The other night my mom said something like “listening is underrated”. What a smart woman! If you don’t listen, then you will essentially have nothing to say.
What I should have learned from having laryngitis is that being quiet and still is okay, and even so necessary in life.
Catch ya later beauts, I’ve missed you!
