Dear Gorgeous Girl,

Sometimes the very best gift we can give to ourselves is a little bit of time alone… complete silence and complete calm.

Even if it’s for a little while…quiet time is essential to our souls. Our deepest truths speak in quiet little voices most of the time, and we have to get our lives calm and quiet to be able to hear them. When we are feeling scattered, depleted, confused and torn…a remedy that almost always works is to take a walk all alone, or to go somewhere quiet and be all alone…and to just sit…just listen.

It may seem too simple, too good to be true…but so many of the mysteries of life have the simplest answers…and we just have to trust in their simplicity. Give yourself the gift of solitude, quiet and a listening heart…as often as you can…and you will hear the things you need to hear.

Unplug, walk away, take a breath…do it for the sake of everything and everyone that you love…and especially do it for you.

Your answers are in there…your calm, wise self is in there too…now, go find her…she’s been waiting patiently.
