Into the Calm


I started this blog on my birthday three years ago.  And every year since, I like to look back and reflect on the things that I’ve learned through my experience over the year.  So far my favorite part has been having the opportunity to get to know so many of you better…thank you for reaching out and connecting with me.  I’m so happy that this blog has turned out to be a two way communication.

Lately, I’ve been feeling a pull towards the calm…a quiet place where there are less words and more thinking.  This being the case I most likely won’t be at my blog as much (I’ve been posting roughly once or twice a week) or maybe my postings will be less scheduled and more spontaneous.  I’m not really sure how it’ll go, so for now I think I’ll just let my instinct guide me along.

Many thanks to you for stopping by…I very much appreciate your interest, care and support.  BTW, I hope that my new blog banner reflects the serene mood that I’ve been moving towards.  I believe that from a peaceful place our truest inner selves will be revealed.

  1. Now and then it is good to find the calm and to be still. We move so much and keep so busy that we often miss what we are mean to know, or to be doing or experiencing. It is in the stillness and silence that we can hear our voices clearly. Beautiful banner.

  2. Your blog banner is so soothing. And I completely understand the need for calm. In the last year of my very busy life I have found myself looking to eliminate any extra things. What I’ve noticed is that while I’m blogging much less, I’m creating more. I just don’t have the need to share it online on my blog as much.

  7. Becky I understand your desire for calm and stillness, (your blog is often the very place I sneak off to when searching for calm and quiet inspiration myself). At the risk of sounding selfish, I am relieved to hear you will still be posting, even if less frequently!

    Sending you wishes for a beautiful birthday today. xo

  8. I can appreciate your sentiments Becky. I too have not been feeling like writing much on my blog. I’m sure people are wondering what has happened to me. Or perhaps not. A little bit of calm is very inviting.

  9. Oh yes, into the calm… good for you Becky. It seems almost cyclic in many ways, the days of words and then the quiet times. I understand completely as I am like that myself – chatty one minute and then quiet again.
    Lately I have felt as though I have run out of words myself and have posted less often – busy days make too much noise for the thoughts to coalesce and the words to come freely; I can’t talk if it seems stilted.
    Enjoy!

    I am possibly one of your newer friends to your blog but there is most definitely a sense of serenity whenever I visit and your blog banner reflects that sense to perfection.
    So many choose to ignore their inner compass, possibly fighting against it at times.
    Quiet time is essential and your words resonate with all of us.
    Envelope yourself in calm and know that we await your posts whenever they may be.
    Wishes

    Calm, relax, create. I know what it’s like to crave the quiet and not always be able to get it.
    Enjoy when you can, all that you can. I hope you don’t disappear for long period, I do enjoy you “findings” of things and what you make from them. “Keep Calm and Create On”
    peace
