Today is a new day isn’t it? A whole new matter indeed. Are you comfortable in you? I’m comfortable in my own skin. I do not mind the quiet of my mind or the stillness in my thoughts. How about you? I enjoy my own company and I have learned to schedule my time because I value it and do not want to squander my remaining days on planet earth. My identity is much more secure today than it was 30 years ago. My desire to listen and hear from others is greater than it was when I was young and filled with insecurity and fears. Then, I needed no one to give me instructions and now??? WOW!! DO I NEED HELP!! While here on planet earth, I want to love and be loved and I want to be pleasing to the One Who fills my thoughts. What about you?
I want to encourage you to not fear the quiet. As a matter of fact, let the stillness take a journey into your heart and soul. Quiet and still does not necessarily mean dark despair. Often times the quiet offers colors of the rainbow that the noise and busyness of days miss. #BEBRAVER and face the fear of the quiet. It is highly possible you will make a new friend if you faint not…and you may even find yourself becoming a friend to the Silence and a friend with you.
Until next time – love love!!
I’d love to introduce to me, my family and my mom!!! She passed when I was young but I tell about her in Woman Come Out of the Cave. It’s a great gift for anyone who wants to know how amazing they really are….:)

Silence is almost a lost art form of sorts…yet I highly recommend it. I recommend you thinking thoughts without the props of music or talking. I recommend you accessing the place of silence where LOVE speaks…where light shines into darkness…where ashes turn into beauty and where you are looking at life from a higher place. This morning, after the silence was broken, I reminded myself that being alone is not always lonely just as being with a hundred people doesn’t mean you have a friend. I also reminded myself that the reason I’m not deciding what movie to go see, outfit I want to wear or friend I’m going to meet is because my use of time is much different today than it was many years ago. I plan my time now. I’m not so rigid that I have every single moment planned so that I can’t be spontaneous BUT I attempt to be productive…plan my life in such a way that I can look back and see where I have grown, what I have done and how I have impacted my life or the lives around me.
What about you? Tell me about you! It’s time to be BRAVE….be bold today my friend and introduce yourself to your best friend – YOU.
Until next time!! If you want to get to know me and enjoy a fun read about life and living….check out

When I was young, I received an invitation into silence frequently from my mom. There were multiple reasons as to why I believed we lived in the country – our address was a Star Route, there was a horse across the road, there were what seemed like a thousand dogs next door, our house sat next to a forest, we had barb wire fence, there was hardly anyone my age nearby and a railroad was within a stone’s throw. We used to go down to the railroad track and fish in the little creek next to it! Believe you me, it was country to me! My sister was almost 8 years older than me so our paths did not cross much so Mom was the one I called on to play when I was bored which was most the time. I do have memories of playing with my mom from Flap Jack all night long to badminton to taking walks but there was the occasion when she told me no for whatever reason. It seems like yesterday and I hear her say, “Donna, why don’t you go sit underneath a tree and do some constructive thinking?” SERIOUSLY Really?
Wow Mom. Disappointed, I would do just what she said – I would literally go sit beneath a tree and think and ponder in the silence the outdoors offered me. I have her to thank for my thinking and my pondering and my wondering. She was a writer and I guess somewhere on the inside of her, she knew how to access that place in me that was called to write.
I hated quiet….but in the quiet I was forced to meet with me. I genuinely like me. I know….weird right? Honestly, I did not like me when I was little but I’m oldER now and I can go to the movies alone, out to eat by myself, take a drive alone, go to the park…it’s so refreshing to like myself. I meet a lot of folks who MUST have the sounds of tv, radio, music or talking around them to feel comfortable…and maybe it’s not the same with everyone…but I think maybe it’s a way to hide out from meeting ourselves…..SO BE BRAVER AND FIND YOURSELF IN THE QUIET 🙂
