This may be one of the most timely tips I’ve shared to date:
When we’re working towards a goal or lifestyle change, it’s tempting to think, at some point, we’ll arrive. But it’s important to acknowledge that no matter how many Serenity Topics I explore, no matter how encouraged I feel that I’m finally “getting the hang of it,” some days will simply be less serene than others.
Much like enjoying the journey without being too hung up about the destination, sometimes the sea of our serenity will feel choppy. Today, for example, the Wiles nest is being turned upside down and inside out, in the name of new carpet. A worthy goal, but hardly a serene experience. When you have days like this, hang in there… and trust that calmer waters will return!
