Day 12 - peace is not a place 

Peace. It does not mean to be in a place
where this is no noise, trouble
or hard work. It means to be in
the midst of those things and still
be calm in your heart.

Our journey through life isn’t always easy.  But it is still worth it.  To never struggle is to never grow.  There is no smooth road to any place worth going.      

It’s better to see and accept things as they are instead of what we wished or expected them to be.  Just because things don’t always turn out the way we envisioned,  doesn’t mean it isn’t exactly what we needed to get where we ultimately wanted to go. 

One’s s destination is never a place rather a new way of looking at things.

Henry Miller

The road to peace is filled with many obstacles.  It’s not easy, but the journey is worth it. Many have learned the hard way, myself included,  Peace is in the here and now, it’s always within.  Peace is a decision that must be made daily.

What is Christmas?  It is tenderness for the past, courage for the present, hope for the future.  It is a fervent wish that every cup may overflow with blessings rich and eternal, and that every path may lead to peace.

Agnes M Pharo

Don't worry, be happy!

I so agree with your thought Ma that peace is a decision that needs to be made daily. Our attitude can help change the attitudes of others, good or bad, so that's why it is important to embrace peace and gratitude constantly throughout our lives.

"There is no smooth road to anyplace worth going." I love that phrase, particularly the last two words. (Been there, and have lived to regret those smooth surfaces!)
