I’ve embarked on a mission to find more peace and calm in my life – to become more centered. How can you not look out this “window” I made and not find serenity and peace in the stunning sky? In the nature so up close and personal you feel like you could reach out and touch it?
So much goes on in daily life that can rob us of our peace, calm and serenity. And that can and does impact everything we do, whether we express our creativity through writing, photography, painting, drawing, cooking, other crafts…LIFE. Kids. School. Health issues. Spouses. Home improvement projects. Chickens. Pigs. Turkeys. Dogs. Cats. Current events. Gas prices. Weather – too hot, too cold, to wet, not wet enough. Daylight Savings Time. Etc. Etc…all the details that swirl together in our lives to make life easier, more difficult, more pleasant, less pleasant – all things that can rob us of our peace, calm, serenity. Conspiring to increase our joy in life if we’re lucky. It’s striking a balance and an ability to weather the storms that I’m after.
Here are a few things I’ve pinned onto my new Pinterest board, Spirituality.
And to apply to my writing…
Balance. Peace. Calm. Serenity. JOY.
