Serenity for me is putting what I can in my life in order and letting the rest go: the things I cannot control.
This means that I complete tasks/chores in my life that will add to the quality and balance of my daily existence.
Paying the bills in a timely manner.
Keeping my house clean and orderly.
Exercising each day.
By keeping my physical and mental house “in order” I am creating structure and balance so that when unforeseen events tax my emotional or physical state… I am centered and better prepared to handle the situation: I am calm and able to offer support to those I love when they may be negatively affected by a crisis.
“Dear God, help me to keep my house in order. Help me to make time each day to complete the tasks that will help me stay in serenity.”
