Now and then I retreat into a world of my own, a place of stillness with muted emotions, a place to just be. It isn’t a light switch that I can switch on and poof, suddenly I am in the quiet place, but rather noticing over several days that I have become quieter, with very little interaction with others.
Sometimes I discover that somewhere in the back of my mind I have been dwelling on something that I should probably deal with. Other times I think perhaps it is just a mini-vacation from too much going on in a short period of time and I simply choose to reduce the stimuli around me for a bit.
Maybe it is a protection mode or wall that we all put up occasionally…
P.S. A special shout out to all my friends who are participating in the V7N 30 Day Blog Challenge. I know you can do it!
