The Best of 2009: Day 8

Day 8: Best moment of peace?

Without a doubt my favourite part of the day is my journey to work in the morning. It's twenty minutes where I have time to think about the day to come. Before work starts, before the emails and the phone calls begin. I drive past lots of open fields and woodland and the sunrises are often spectacular, particularly at this time of year. As the days gets shorter and the mornings get darker I savour these minutes even more. At times it can feel like I'm awake whilst the world is sleeping and I relish that feeling.

Silence and peace is something that I've only come to truly appreciate over the last six months or so. Before then I feared it. I didn't want to be still or silent. I guess I was afraid of the thoughts that might take over. I value my own space so much more now than ever before in my life. In fact, I think I'd go crazy without it.

(I skipped yesterday's 'best of' post on purpose. I've documented many times which are my favourite blogs and I didn't feel the need to do it again. You know who you are my lovelies)
