After I left Little Rock, I had a 13-hour drive ahead of me to get to Albuquerque…straight through Oklahoma.
And if you’ve ever been to Oklahoma, you know there’s not much there. It’s flat, it’s wide open, it’s largely unpopulated. I enjoyed the nothingness and took in the enormity of the sky when there are no obstructions.
And then I realized this: in the nothingness, I was able to ponder everything. Because when we’re inundated with everything, we can ponder nothing.
So slow down, reduce the clutter, shut off the phone and enjoy the nothingness. See how it shifts everything.
