Thankful Thursday – A Calm

Today, for some reason, I feel an odd sense of calm.


“Nothing is so bitter that a calm mind cannot find comfort in it.”~~Seneca (Roman philosopher, mid-1st century AD)

“The ideal of calm exists in a sitting cat.”~~Jules Renard (French Writer, 1864-1910)

“The secret of success is to be in harmony with existence, to be always calm to let each wave of life wash us a little farther up the shore.”~~ Cyril Connolly (English critic and editor, 1903-1974)


I’m not quite sure why that is…things are still hectic as ever between balancing work and home life, managing my grandmother’s finances, worrying about her home remodel and trying to line up 24/7 live in care for her.  This in addition to battling my predisposition for migraines.

Maybe, at least for today, I have been able to step back and accept the fact that worrying will accomplish nothing.  Maybe, at least for today, I am able to let things happen as they will.

On the other hand–I did just commit myself to starting a new project this Autumn.  One that will be both fun but also very time consuming.  And I just wrote out a page full of goals to accomplish for the next few months.  Maybe I just feel better to have some decisions made and some goals out of my head and put down in writing!

Whatever the reason–I am thankful for this peaceful interlude today. It’s not too often that my mind slows down and I plan to enjoy every minute of it!

What are you Thankful for today?

    Calm is our natural state. Tranquility exist, because we are all breathing, feeling miracles..

  4. Jotting down hopes and goals also calms me. It helps you stay focused and in control of your own destiny. Try to hold onto that peaceful feeling!
