Today let’s talk about serenity.
Have you ever wondered what that was and what it actually felt like?
When I first started dealing with the effects of growing up in an alcoholic family, it was just an abstract concept to me. I had grown up in the middle of such turbulence, and it was so familiar to live that way, that I thought chaos was normal. I learned that for me, serenity isn’t the absence of problems, it is the ability to be at peace as I work through the normal problems and issues of life. When I am on the right path and doing what is best for me, there is a joyful optimism that blossoms without regard to current events in my world. Its a whole new way of living, much more calm and peaceful than fighting against life, an amazing freedom to experience.
Have you ever struggled to feel serenity?
