Personal development can be a wonderful journey. There is much to learn, explore and to achieve: Personally, financially, spiritually and in the relationships with others.

What if it’s becoming an obsession?

I like silence. A peaceful, silent, natural environment is something that lifts me up and gives me energy. It is a recharge. Like meditation, silence brings me back to, and in touch with myself. Too much and too loud noises around me makes me feel uncomfortable, not being able to maintain my energy level. In fact it drains the energy right out of me.

Meditation can be very relaxing and rewarding, like walking in the forest or listening to good music.
