Wednesday Words – City Girl

“I’ve always thought of myself as a city girl. I love the energy, the diversity, the noise. I love the variety of experiences, the speed and volume, the endless chatter and din of traffic, the endless options and adventures.

But as I learn to dwell in the silence of my own heart, I’m finding myself drawn to the silence of nature – of water, land, expanse. As I learn to trust the stillness I’ve been running from for so long, I’m finding that I crave more and more silence. I’m drawn back to the water, to the sound of the waves instead of the sounds of traffic and the blare of action and excitement.”

-Shauna Niequist, Present Over Perfect
