Serenity (noun): The state of being calm, peaceful and untroubled.
Isn't peace a beautiful thing? Being in a place with no drama, chaos, noise, etc. That's what I'm searching for in 2015. A constant pursuit for peace of mind. Not just in my relationships, but in my everyday choices; big and small.
The two-stanza long serenity prayer, that is commonly referred to when one is searching for peace is a great reflection of what I aspire to attain this year. The first stanza, specifically, is a daily meditation for me:
Not only is it beautifully phrased, it's sooooo relevant to my life right now. I'm tired of staying stuck on situations that are beyond my control, when I could be using my energy elsewhere. A lot of times I let circumstances that I cannot change affect my self-esteem and my confidence of moving forward to other endeavors. And truthfully speaking, I'm tired of it. My resolution is to choose wisely about what I should and should not worry about. I believe this will relieve me of so much anxiousness!
Because honestly, I'd rather have a "peace" of mind than just barely a "piece" of my mind.
How can you attain more peace in your life in 2015?
