Quote: Peace of mind comes piece by piece
A wee story that came to mind when I read my teabag 'note of wisdom' this morning.
For years and years I felt confined and overwhelmed with it all.
I often thought that if I could just get to ... <insert whatever place I was obsessed with at the time>... then I would feel better.
That my mind would be more at ease.
That I would finally have some peace of mind + peace and quiet in my life.
So I travelled for years and years (along with my three sons) in search of this mythical place that would finally give me the peace that I was searching for.
Yet whenever I would get to THE place, I always felt the same once the initial rush of being somewhere new wore off.
Eventually, I realised that it wasn't a geographical place that I was searching for, it was a mental place.
** It wasn't a geographical place, it was a mental place. **
It was all in my mind whether or not I was at peace and had the coveted peace and quiet that I was searching for.
Once I came to realise that, where I was located geographically on the planet didn't matter nearly as much.
Peace of mind really does come piece by piece.
With grace, grit, and gumption,
