Hey everyone I hope you’re doing well this afternoon, today’s blog post topic is gonna be a little different, it’s not really based off anything in particular…….today’s post as you can tell from the title of it, is all about the sound of silence. Sounds fun and interesting right ha, probably not, but yeah i’m not quite sure what I want to talk about today, so I just thought i’d come up with something random, plus i’ve found myself listening to the natural sounds around me and oddly enjoying it I guess you can say.
It’s probably really weird, I guess the more you speak on it, it does sound quite weird. I just hope that it’s not super boring to you guys, umm but yeah…….have you ever just sat back and listened to the natural sounds around you!? it’s quite interesting because when you’re just still and everything around you isn’t making much noise you actually hear more, I know that probably sounds very confusing and will probably have you go “what” (you can’t tell, but I just laughed at myself because saying “what” is reminding of a wrestler, hey you might actually know this wrestler for those who use to watch it back then Stone Cold Steve Austin, yeah he use to say that and for some reason it’s really funny because it’s a little bit random but then again it’s not at the same time)
Anyway back to what I was originally talking about, the sound of silence, it’s quite interesting actually because you wouldn’t really think that silence has a sound to it considering it’s called silence for a reason am I right!? However it actually does, now would I be able to tell you exactly what that sound is!? No because how would you even describe silence and is it even possible to describe it!? Not quite, but if you had to describe it, how would you!? See to me silence has a very calm and mellow feel to it especially when it’s very cloudy out after it just rained, I say that because that’s exactly how it is right now where i’m at. Now maybe you’re thinking you’re just talking rubbish right now, how does silence even have a sound!?
Well like I said before, yeah it’s called silence so how is that possible and my answer to you would be…..it is, but it’s only when everything around you is quiet that you hear it, for example a minute ago it was silent outside my window, but now a car is leaving a driveway so it’s not anymore at least for the moment that is, now when that car leaves, it will become quiet again and when that happens, the silence will then return.
I’ll give you a few things that happened within the silence for it to become un silent (probably not a word, maybe it is, but either way i’m gonna use it)
- A car left a driveway
- My phone went off telling me I had a notification of some sort
- Crickets were chirping outside of my window
- A dog barked
Now those were just a few things that happened within the silence to make it where it wasn’t silent anymore, now it probably was very boring to read I know, but I just wanted to give you a few examples, another thing i’ll add is me talking while I write, I always do that though, because it helps me think better and my thoughts tend to come out the way I want them to (most of the time that is) Even when it’s silent though, you still are able to hear some kind of sound, it can be a small sound or a very large one to where it may startle you a bit, but we know that after those sounds have passed, the silence will return……….Have you noticed that whenever you sort through your thoughts and feelings, that your mind too because more calm and silent!?
As some of you may know, I have this thing where most of the time my mind likes to bring a lot of information to me, causing me to overthink things that in all reality don’t really need to be over thought (I hope I made sense there) lately though it’s been quite nice to me and hasn’t gotten out of hand, which i’m happy about because I found that overthinking things just makes everything else a mess, so to have it where I feel not super overwhelmed with a wave of constant overthinking, it feels nice, very nice actually. You tend to realize when you’re mind becomes still and calm that everything around you also becomes still and calm, okay maybe not everything, but i’d say a good amount does and so when you feel that calmness and you feel that……In all honestly I don’t even know what else to put here, uhhhh but when you feel the stillness (well I guess that would be it) when you feel the stillness of certain things around you, it sorta gives you a sense of peace and understanding, I don’t know if that makes sense but yeah.
The sound of silence, actually has a sound to it…….you just kinda have to really listen to hear it as well as feel it, because believe it or not you can feel it, I can’t explain it exactly but you do feel it, if I had to describe it, i’d say it’s confusing, weird, but also oddly nice let’s just say it’s one of things you can’t really describe you just have to be with it, in order to get it……..yeah……..so that’s my thought for today nothing too exciting nor super long, just simple and a good amount if I had to put it a certain way.
How would you describe the sound of silence if you had to describe it!? Have you ever experienced the same thing and if so how does/did it make you feel!? I hope you all are having a lovely day and I hope you all have a goodnight/morning and or evening 🙂
All The Love ❤ ❤
