    I Appreciate The Moments Of Mindful Bliss

    I like to mix and have fun like anyone else, but I also deeply value a peaceful soul and mind... I enjoy hearing silence and quiet around me... I enjoy having time out to think my own thoughts and feel relaxation and re-charge myself... there are few places now that understand...

    There is no such thing as peace and quiet. Everywhere you go theres noise. Even when you close everything off in the house and try to get some rest you hear the neighbors rustling about, the cars traveling on the roads, wind blowing, sirens on police cars,the clock ticking in the...

    I like it but if it's just blankly ignoring someone I think it's mean and I want to push them off their chair. And when someone disrupts me when I'm wandering around I want to shoot them in the leg and lie in the grass while they run off I hate how often people do that and then...

    this world is too noisy.

    That's really all I had to say about that but the little pink message told me to "make my story longer"

    If You're Quiet You Can Hear Yourself Think...

    It's great having moments of peace and quiet (though quiet is not always necessary).I realized the less activity going on around me the better.I went to a festival recently and I hated it, I barely enjoyed any of it because there were just way to many people there for my comfort...

    Peace and quiet to me is sitting in my back yard feeling the warm golden sun on my face and the balmy breeze whispering through the trees.  Tranquility sets in and gently soothes my soul.  My heart beats gently my body relaxes as all the worries of the day fade away...

    Its the Only

    way I can get almost totally sane again!! Going to the desert or mountains here works best, but if I can't do that, then I hit airport mode on the phone, minimize getting online or cut it out altogether and get some serious solitude :D Its really the only thing that every works...

    Peace and Quiet

     I like being able to sit and just let the stress try to melt away or atleast just be shrugged off long enough to relax the mind and muscles. I can find this in quiet rooms, soft music, watching the ocean or the clouds or the soft sleepy eyes of my new son. When I can find...

    Fighting My Way Out Of Myself

    Smiles to hide the tears I cry. I put you at ease while I fidget in my skin. Broken coffee pots and anger I cannot explain reflects my shattered but functioning heart and the way I feel about the pain. Trapped in the only corner I would not fight my way out of…afraid of the...

    Noise Pollution Makes Me Sick, Literally.

    Noise pollution makes me sick, literally. I cannot think straight, my pain gets worse, stress level rises, sweating, increased heart rate, and finally grand mal panic attack. I have a panic disorder that recently bloomed out of no where. Although I have some theories of its...

    When you stop being what everyone else wants

    you to be, including your own mind. All their expectations, let them be, distance yourself from all that and there prevails a stillness, a quietness so peaceful which no material things can give. I just love that peace and quiet, but sadly, it doesn't last long and the mind and...

     I am not a morning person, but When I get a good nights rest and wake up real early before everyone else and can just sit and eat a bowl of cereal, in peace and quiet. It is so so nice.

    The Sound Of Silence.

    This would be the first thing I'll be posting on here, and as I think it'd be necessary to make my first post something self-defining, I feel the need to declare my love of peace and quiet. After a long day's work, I go home, do some chores and then once I feel I deserve it I...

    I need silence, most of the time.... the quiet forests or at the very least, MY choice of music in my headphones so I can block out the noise not of my choice. Silence is the best though.... mock silence and the peace of solitude. I get it so rarely anymore. Though it is...

    It's midnight and I'm the only one up.

    I'm reading a great novel beside a bed side lamp. The cool summer breeze gently flows through the window. It's so peaceful and quiet, except the occasional cricket chirps. I want to stay in this moment forever.

    Stillshot Of Serenity

    Ever have one of those moments where the world seems to stop for a split second and you haven't got a worry in the world? Although I don't go frequently, I was on a golf outing yesterday. At one point I had to walk up some steps to a plateau where I would tee off. I reached the...

    alone in the house. Everyone is gone for now. I don't hear Battlefield being played in the family room. Constant blasting sound of more than one television on at the same time. No one talking. No one asking me anything. The dog is sleeping. My constant companion "Anxiety" is...
