Dumbstruck

December 23rd, 2015 Leave a comment Go to comments

This word, out of nowhere, just popped into my head.
I looked up the definition and it related to being so shocked or surprised as to be unable to speak.

Being dumbstruck happens to us when events happen in our life that our beyond our comprehension. It’s leaves us speechless with a ‘far away’ look in our eye like we are fading away into nothingness with no prospects of waking up.

But then we go to bed, hopefully sleep, and wake up the next day to begin anew. Our energy, again, is hopefully renewed and we are ready to face to day and find new experiences and new people.

The end of the day always comes though and we are faced with who we are and who we are trying to become. We think about it, the reality sets in, and we are left with definitive feelings. Some good, some bad and some in between. Then we close our eyes, fall asleep and hopefully, again, the deep breathing and dreaming begins.

There is something so healing about the sound of a human being taking deep breaths while sleeping. Something so soothing like this is the state we are supposed to be in. This is when we are most peaceful.

Have you ever been dumbstruck? Have you ever witnessed someone else being in a dumbstruck state?

It’d be great to hear from you,
