To be open to serenity has different meanings for each person. For me, it’s stopping for a moment before I react and try to get all the facts before I get irritated – my irritation engulfs me quickly. Nothing to brag about but it is my daily reality so I strive to manage it.
For someone else it may be completing certain tasks before they go to work or before the kids get home from school. It may also mean having the chutzpah to say no to something you really don't want to do.
Take 30 seconds to mentally investigate what would help encourage some serenity in your life. This is a serenity that is dependent on you not on others or those with whom you live.
It’s all about you!
