Choose serenity

Thursday October 22, 2009 #166

“Boredom is the feeling that everything is a waste of time; serenity, that nothing is.”

~Thomas Szasz

Happiness and serenity come from the ability to see the potential in every situation and activity.  It is how we approach life that matters.  Tough meeting coming up?  Approach it as an opportunity to learn.  Rain on the day you’d planned an outdoor activity?  Decide to enjoy an indoor event like a movie instead.  Yes it is harder than I make it sound and yes, it is crucial that you learn how to do this.  Try it today.  Something will come up that you think is a waste of time or that doesn’t go the way you’d planned.  Choose to react with serenity.
