Things never calm down, at least not for long. That is the nature of life on this planet. The key is this; remain happy. No matter what befalls you or who gets in your face, stay peaceful.
Now, I can see in my minds eye, so many of you becoming angry at this suggestion. I get it. To remain calm and happy in the face of adversity is easier said than done.
Recently my husband accused me of "just not caring!" He was right, I don't care. I don't give a flip what the circumstances around me look like. I do care about how I feel. What's the point of getting upset over petty little shit? AND, it's ALL petty little shit.
We've all heard the saying: "This too shall pass." Exactly. It is passing through your life. It doesn't have to BE your life.
For the first time, ever, I am at peace. Of course at times my body belies the fact that something has upset me. That's okay. As long as I'm aware of it and as soon as possible, bring myself back to peace.
God is in control and I'm not Him. We will never, never, ever, arrive. . .life is about the journey. Having fun along the way, gurarantees a happy life. Money doesn't, family doesn't, friends don't. . .we must decided every morning.
Fantasizing the freedom to be annoyingly happy, NO MATTER WHAT!
