My Serenity certificate

“Serenity”. I felt the energy of the word calling to me from the large pale pink canvas that it was painted on. I saw it and thought, ‘now that is another fabulous art work for one of my walls’ and I just had to buy it. After all I wanted to feel serene and I wanted serenity. Peace, calm tranquility! I wanted a bit of that.  I had just had a year of challenges and I wanted serenity. I wanted proof that I had Serenity like a certificate on my wall.

What was unexpected was the actual chaos and the rollercoaster ride that I experienced for the following year. Where was my serenity? 

Then I realised, what was my intention when I saw and purchased my gorgeous work of art “Serenity”? I had asked for Serenity. The universe heard my call and sent me a bowling ball to remove all things in my life to make it more serene. Woah. So yes a year of the opposite of Serenity to arrive at destination Serenity? 

Ahh I get it. Serenity is not a destination. It can be part of my day every day. I can choose to feel serenity. I can tap into the stillness, calmness and find it. Some days are easier than others to find Serenity and some moments she surprises me and I feel calm and still in her orbit. 

Serenity has taught me so much! Thank you friend I look forward to spending time again with you soon!
