The Voice Inside My Head

initials-and-heart


When I’m cooking dinner, folding laundry, cleaning litter boxes, peeling potatoes, or sitting in traffic I talk to myself, not out loud mind you, but in the shelter of my head. 

The voice inside my head is different from my speaking voice.   It is quiet and confident.  It never stumbles over its words.  It’s gentle and forgiving.  It’s really, really smart.

It’s the essence of who I am.  And it’s my job to get it out of my head and into the world so that I can live an authentic life and connect meaningfully with others.

It’s scary to think about sharing the voice inside my head with others.  What if they think she’s silly?  What if no one listens to her?  What if she’s not so smart after all?

I can start small by speaking my truth to those I really, really trust.  Maybe after a little practice I can let her out in less comfortable situations, provided that I feel safe.

W.H. Auden said, “All we have is a voice.”  Let’s find it and use it.

Soul Prayer:  I will share the voice inside my head.
