Silence is Good Soil for Growth

My silence on this blog the last few weeks had some of you concerned.

C’mon, Brenda. What’s wrong?

Nothing.

No, REALLY?

Really!

There was a time when I had to have a constant stream of ideas and motivational thoughts in this online “diary” of sorts. All, of course, intended to inspire and uplift.

But as I grow, I feel led to choose my words more carefully.

This blog is a joy to write and to connect with you? It’s wonderful.

But recent events in our country rendered me silent. And in the silence, I could be still and listen. And think; learn.

I didn’t want to speak, because I didn’t want to mis-speak.

Other voices needed to be heard, and boy, I listened. What I heard in the silence shook me from the complacency of my upbringing and I think I’m starting to “get” it.

This is a pivotal time in our nation and I want to be on the right side of history.

I don’t want to live by default or on auto-pilot.

Turmoil? It’s a good thing if it causes us to question ourselves and leads to growth.

I haven’t arrived, but in the silence, the seeds for growth have been sown. More on that here:

I wish you and yours good health, much resilience, and an abundance of love.

Brenda
