Noise

It’s all just noise anyway.  That’s what I’m thinking while listening to Matchbox Twenty’s More Than You Think You Are album (2002) while running today.  The discordant harmony bounces around in my head, searching for a melody, and it reminds me of just how much extra noise has cluttered my mind lately.  There’s the noise I sometimes tell myself, “I’m not good enough”, or the noise I listen to from others who want to discredit or tear me down, or just the plain old everyday noise from the abundance of our busy lives.  It can feel like arrows flying in all directions, so much that I hardly have a place to land my feet.  No wonder we trip.  It’s all just noise.  We have to get rid of some of those bows shooting arrows, so the remaining arrows can clearly see their target.  Turn down the volume, delete the negative, drive in a different direction.  Step into the light.  Find something good and gravitate toward it, cling to it.  Dark shadows may follow, but eventually and most certainly, the light will outshine the dark, and the noise around us will lessen.  When the noise gets too distracting, I find myself repeating these four words in my mind, and I know what I need to do:  Step into the Light.

About Life and Heart Matters

I love sharing the stories I see around me every day - of life, family, of the heart and of the spirit. I've written for Guideposts and Angels on Earth magazines, participated in speaking engagements across the U.S and France, and enjoy working with humanitarian efforts. I also like spending time running, swimming and reading, all of which can be done on a beach somewhere!
