I just realized today how much time i sit quietly. I never realized that i wasn’t talking or listening to the radio because i have so many thoughts swarming in my head and i’ve been amazed how many times the same passion pit song can repeat in one’s head when there is no radio.
My dad has always driven the car with no radio. We would either talk or be silent. It used to drive me crazy when i was younger but i’ve found that now i’m the same way. It makes it easier to take me time and re-evaluate what direction i’m going. Here, i’ve been getting so much quiet time to myself i feel mentally cleaner and refreshed. That’s not to say i’m any less confused but i feel like at least i know what i’m confused about rather than having this vague feeling pecking at me and not knowing where it’s coming from. I think it is an important part of life to take quiet reflection but no one really knows how to fit that into their actual life.
