Oftentimes I’m told I am an encourager because I have the tendency to see the world from positive perspectives, and I strive to get others to do so too. This is by choice. If you’ve followed my writings, you will realize I have an idealistic approach to society, but I am realistic.
I have a keen sense of awareness of world events and the devastations around the world. But, with so much emphasis on the prevalence of the calamities, I choose not to give too much energy and focus on those things.
Obviously, the world is not calm, the world does not stand still. It’s up to you to embrace peace. Choose to find solace in knowing peace is not external. Peace is quiet and still, it’s internal. You can live in a world of chaos and have peace within because peace is a state of mind.
One of my favorite quotes is from Jack Kornfield, “By making the heart a zone of peace, it affects everybody you touch.” We can choose to embrace confusion or retreat to a zone of peace.
I choose to make my life a peaceful one!
