I rarely recognized how the noise around me was cluttering my mind and distracting me from creating the life that I wanted.
Have you ever felt this way?
We’re about to do something but the “buzz” in our pocket takes us away from focusing on the things that really matter.
That “buzz” can be a metaphor for any distraction we come across.
The world is noisy, yes, but it becomes much quieter when we realize we have a choice.
There is an “off” button.
We can silence the notifications, we can prioritize our lives, and we can focus on ourselves first so that we can then give more of our true selves to the world.
We can accept what we’ve known all along but have avoided or suppressed while the distractions have overtaken us.
We can start to listen to what we really want.
Then the question becomes, is the noise really coming from the outside, or has it been inside our own heads this whole time?
