Finding Peace

~~Ever felt an angel's breath in the gentle breeze?  A teardrop in the falling rain?  Hear a whisper amongst the rustle of leaves?  Or been kissed by a lone snowflake?  Nature is an angel's favorite hiding place.~~

I find peace in nature.  Not in just week-end hiking or camping trips every now and then.  I need to get outside every day.  Sometimes to walk.  Sometimes to work in my yard.  But always....always....to find peace of mind.  I need that because it keeps me balanced.  I can get overwhelmed with my job or people's problems or bills.....the list is endless.  But when I step outside and pay attention to the trees, the sky, the birds, or the air, everything else just melts away for a few minutes and I find total peace.  It's truly a lovely feeling.

I can also find that feeling when I practice my yoga.  When I hug my grandson.  When I look at my Jake.  More and more, I am finding peace in my every day life rather than tension, worry, stress, and other negative emotions.  I do not have a perfect life by any stretch of the imagation.....but it is perfect for me. 

Letting go of the smoking was part of me changing the way I live my life.  I didn't let outside influences interfere this time.  I needed to quit so I focused on making positive changes.  I changed the way I thought about things.  I changed my routine to incorporate beauty, fun, and joy.  And I am loving every minute of it now.

I'm happy.  I'm healthier.  And each day brings peace and joy.  I couldn't ask for more than that.  I hope each of you are finding some peace in your day.  Do the things that bring you joy.  

May you find your smile......
