I started this post once, twice and again. Each time I got a different answer.
First I wished for the renos on my house to be complete, I wished for a bigger studio space; and I wished for less mud in the yard because wiping 8 puppy paws several times a day is driving me a little bananas.
The second time I started writing I wished for abundance and prosperity in my future.
While I truly wish for these things they didn’t quite hit the mark this morning. This morning I wish to have peace in my future. Peace within my family, peace within my community, peace within our world and the only peace I can actively work on – peace within myself.
Being present to my life and looking for little moments of joy are what I thrive on; they soften my hard edges and help me move into the peace I know is available to me. Some days those little moments are harder to come by and I know I have to keep looking and hoping for them to show their tiny little faces to me.
Peace comes to me in a beautiful blossom, in silence broken by spring birds; it comes in hearing the car coming down the lane after my son has been out for the evening. Peace comes to me when Jon takes my hand while walking or when my pup rests her head in my lap.
There are as many ways to peace as people looking for it – and I wish it not only for myself; but for you also.
