I have not been serene lately, so this post feels timely. Difficult news from family in the US and the ongoing pandemic problems have combined to disturb my peace, so I’ve spent the last few days seeking a more serene state of mind. My go to place for peace is almost always the ocean.
But going for a leisurely drive in the country side also helps me feel calm, as well as walking in a wooded area when no one else is on the trail. I recently took a little trip out of town on a very rainy weekend just to escape from city and suburban life. Even when the weather is bad I enjoy a good lookout, a natural place to viewthe world from.
So nature is the place that restores my serenety, my sense that everything will be alright, that there is something much greater than me that’s in charge of it all.
Thanks to Patti for hosting this Serene challenge.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to Everyone!
May your heart be filled with peace, joy and love as you celebrate the holidays and begin the New Year!
