121102–49 days of meditation

by Irina Bernebring Journiette

It’s said that silence is good for the soul. I don’t think I can ever be quiet, but I’ve learned that silence can mean many things. Silence here have meant floating, it’s meant being in hiatus. Tonight I’m leaving Riyadh and my silence behind. It’s been quite the journey of self-reflexion and rediscovering. Spending that much time with myself has been interesting and forced me to question who I am and why. It’s not that I had lost myself, it’s just that the stress of life sometimes cloud the enjoyment of life. Then we all need to hit pause, allow ourselves to breath and to not care about all the things that are expected off us. But now I’m off to new adventures.
