I love words. In my blog posts, I have a tendency to become very wordy. A blog post that is supposed to be a list of five places I want to visit becomes a 1000+ word essay on the wonderfulness of those five places even though I haven’t visited them yet. I need the little word count feature to keep track of whether I’ve rambled on for too long, and when I should at least attempt to tie the post up without going on for another thousand words.
Too many words.
I fear that I am simply using words for the sake of using words — to fill up empty spaces and empty silences and drowning out the sounds of my own thoughts instead of expressing them.
Because of this, I feel as if it is a good thing for me to sit and listen without talking too much.
Sometimes it’s good to be still and let the silence speak volumes.
