I consider it a blessing that I can turn off the sounds of the world. I don't feel rushed but relaxed and I love that feeling. When I am connected I hear my family's voices and the sounds I love to hear. There are moments in my day where I just need a moment of peace. I really love living the best of both worlds...even when I am being pulled in many directions. It was the life style I chose to live and now it is simply who I am.
There are times that I feel disconnected in a way that I don't want to be. I often have to work harder to understand a conversation in a large crowd and feel frustrated when I don't completely understand. Again, it is now simply who I am and I will endure the challenge.
