The quieter you become the more you can hear. 

As I grow older, I have realized the more quiet I have become.  Besides the unusual day where I have a ton of stuff to say just cause I feel like talking, but my personality tends to lean on the quiet reserved side. (Unless you know me well then im legit crazy ) hehe jk. Or am I? 😜

This doesn’t work very well when it comes to social situations. People mistaken quiet people for being not outgoing (I can be pretty outgoing depending on my mood, but mostly am an introvert at heart). Or they just don’t even bother connecting with people like me because they might feel we have nothing to offer, or were boring.. Whatever the case may be. I’m proud of my quietness!! It’s a rare trait to have in a world that’s all about themselves and I’ve met way too many narsasstic personalities in my life.

But if you’re the quiet listener type, you should embrace it. Embrace the shit out of it!

You can learn an incredible amount of information just by listening and being mindful. I feel like a lot of people in this world live their lives all about themselves and the amount of people who are terrible listeners are growing expenentially. The world desperately needs more listeners.  I think the better the listener you are the better the friend. I’ve gained an incredible amount of insight on just listening. And able to give decent advice on top of that.

Next time you have a moment to yourself, sit somewhere quiet and electronic free. Close your eyes and focus on your breath for atleast  5 minutes and try to clear your head of all your troubles from the day. Counting down from 10 every time I inhale always works for me.  Inhale in deep and exhale through your nose. Focus on the rising of your belly, or let yourself just be in that stillness. The more quiet your mind comes ( it takes lots of determination and time) the more peace it will bring into your daily life. I do this twice a day (if my toddler allows it😀) . If I can’t find time during the day, I absolutely MUST do it after Audree is asleep and I’m able to really get into it. My nightly sessions are now ranging from 20 minutes to 2 hours. (Mostly chakra meditation at the moment). Meditation is soul therapy. The soul speaks to you. It’s up to you if you want to hear it or not ❤️❤️

  1. This is a beautiful, uplifting post. I am also an introvert, and have learned to love and cherish this in myself… and in so doing, I’ve given inspired many other introverts/quiet people to love themselves too! Thanks so much for your post and the wisdom you share here. 🙂

  2. I absolutely love this so much! I have recently gotten into meditation and soul searching. Quieting the mind is my biggest challenge but I am working slowly toward being peaceful and listening to the soul! Beautiful post! 🤗

  3. I can’t agree more with this post. Like you, I’ve gotten quieter over the years, simply because I’ve seen that there’s a great benefit in careful observation and awareness. Plus, I only like to talk when I have something meaningful to say, which I’ve noticed is a common sentiment among introverts.

    I’ve been practicing meditation for a while now, and I love how it helps me settle down and get connected with my true feelings. I always notice a difference on the days when I don’t meditate.

    Thanks for the great insights!

    1. Glad you enjoyed my post 🙂 I tend to enjoy meaningful conversation over senseless chatter as well. I look back when I was in my young early twenties and all I did was talk, and now I’m 31 I’m realizing that its the content that matters in conversation. Meditation has been a life saver for me. thanks for the comment 🙂

  4. I love this! I too am an introvert and unless people do get to know the ‘real me’ they may very well dismiss me as “quiet but nice” (this was how people described me at school – I can’t think of a blander description of another human being!). Looking at my little two year old now I’ve noticed how she responds more positively in one-on-one situations than in groups (just like her mama). I already expect this will be flagged as a possible concern my teachers as she grows up. But luckily for her she has a mama who will teach her how introverts actually rock! I must try meditation again. I do believe it can work wonders but find it hard to (ironically) ‘quiet’ my mind!
    Great post!

    1. thank you for your feedback ! 🙂 I have an 19 month old and I can already see similar traits in her too! I feel like introverts are the best kind of friend you can have. Our daughters will be the special ones 🙂 and as far as meditation goes, I agree its very hard to quiet the mind, I still have a tough time, but I found that on anxious days if I listen to guided meditation it helps a lot. On my more relaxed days I can go without tools.
