Last night, I came back from a weekend workshop with men where I found out for myself that silence is not necessarily bad if it’s filled with energy that moves other people into passion or positive action. For me, too often, I used silence to avoid, shutdown when all that was needed was acceptance and being open to listening and open possibilities.
Why around men? Because too often, I spent too much time wanting to prove my manhood or that I can hang when rather than be vulnerable and be open. So this weekend with 28 brothers, I learned that it is okay to be myself no matter how it looks like. In a group, I learned about myself and possibilities.
A journey of self-discovery in the midst of men who supported me to discover areas in my life that I can sculpt to be better and be more significant. A powerful weekend that taught me I am never alone, and there is always possibility.
So the Silence Within Dwells with possibility and for that I am grateful!
