silent & unplugged

The house is empty, quiet and perfectly still.

I'm sitting here listening to the cars pass below and enjoying the utter noiselessness that surrounds me. It's a rare thing these days. A quiet, silent house. When was the last time you unplugged? Put away the laptop, placed down the phone, refused to make a list or turned the TV off? I don't do it as often as I should but for some reason it all become too much today, the constant buzzing of technology, and I craved silence more than chocolate. Strange I know. 

Nothing in particular happened to make me want to shut out the noise, just life..everyday, filled to the brim, wonderfully, busy life. Usually I thrive on busy days but tonight I'm craving simplicity. I might even read a book. I don't know about you but sometimes we have so much going on in our lives that I find it hard to really, truly relax. I'm constantly glued to my phone, checking Facebook/Twitter/Pinterest/Instagram on an hourly basis, feeding my habit, pleasantly distracted and always preoccupied.

But tonight I need to silence the noise, step away from the computer, refocus and enjoy a quiet house while I can...they never stay quiet for long do they?

I believe we all need that from time to time. Having a computer home, it has become quiet normal, even staying tuned those days.I will take some time off in December and promise to stay away from any distracting social media trap;-) as I feel exactly the way you do and I do not want to be connected 24/7. Enjoy your moment the most you can!
