That small voice inside us. It’s usually drowned out and so easy to ignore. Each time I have listened to it, it has always turned into something pretty remarkable (like a husband, but I’ll write about that another day).

This time that small voice led me to a three-legged dog.

My previous, most beloved dog had recently died in an unexpected way. If you’ve lost a dog or a best friend, you know the pain. Through tears I vowed to never get a dog again.

That was until just s few days later, a little voice in me said,

“Maybe there is a dog out there with a special need that needs a home. You know, like a dog that only has three legs…”

It was a fleeting, albeit very clear, thought, and I shared that thought with no one. A few hours later, out of nowhere, my husband sent me a link to an adoption page for a small little mutt with only three legs. I was flabbergasted. It couldn’t have been any more clear.

 “It is the still, small voice that the soul heeds, not the deafening blasts of doom.” William Dean Howells

Now we sleep each night with a small in stature, large in personality, three-legged goofball that bit by bit is wriggling herself into my heart.

The gems in life are hidden in that small voice.

We live our lives afraid to tune out the news, the social networks, the noise. What we really are tuning out, however, is that inner voice of wisdom. That small voice that is connected to a higher power.

Take some quiet time every day. Some days the small voice will talk to you and some days it won’t. You will never hear it though, if you don’t open yourself to it.

I’ve taken some pretty big risks in my life after hearing that small voice, and I have never regretted any of them. The voice in your soul, not in your head, is small but mighty, and it speaks to you from beyond the confines of the ego.

I’d love for you to leave a comment below on something wonderful that has happened in your life as the result of listening to your inner small voice!

As always, I wish you all the best!
