"Peace. It does not mean to be in a place where there is no noise, trouble or hard work. It means to be in the midst of those things and still be calm in your heart."
--Unknown, from the Femail Creations catalog
A lot of my favorite quotes feel like they were written just for me. Like The Universe said to the author, "Okay this is what she needs to hear today so write this."
My life is not inherently very peaceful what with two active boys, an aging cat, an old house, and a horny husband there is always something (or someone) that needs doing. In spite of all this I am still under the illusion that someday I am going to have PEACE.
This quote helped me to realize that peace is not something you HAVE, it is something you ARE.
So now I know that it is up to me. I can rearrange the goal in my head and try and BE PEACE.
Thank you Universe for once again sending me the exact message I needed to hear.
