June Love&Inspiration


... seeing how, no matter how insane the external circumstance,
the problem and solution ultimately lie in me.
My reactions are the only place pain and stress can occur.
They are in me, not in the world.

I live in light when I choose to. I live in darkness when I choose to.
It’s not always an easy choice; it’s easy to get married to the dark.
To feel like the dark is just. To feel, in the end, like a victim
 be it of an irritating red light or an unhealthy person.

But from the little aggravations to the stomach knotting troubles,
peace is always in me to find.
This year will be serene.
Because I choose serenity.
