365 days of peace: chasing peace

IMG_1666

It takes a lot of energy to worry. It’s draining. You worry and then what? Either your fears come true or they don’t. It feels automatic. It isn’t. It’s hard but you have a choice. You can stop seeing peace and happiness as somewhere out beyond your anxiety.  You can stop running and experience the joy of the moment. The sensation of bein alive is an amazing thing. Experience that wonder whenever and wherever you can. 354/11 December 20, 2017 blue stain on rough moldy wood

some of us have to learn the same lessons over and over again. I keep learning that each day is an opportunity to live in the moment and fully immerse myself  in the joy and the pain of living. then I forget.   take advantage of the time you have. It’s a gift. 347/18 December 13,2017 colored pencil
