Live your wonderful calm life

A Calm Life

A calm life means you’re not agitated or disturbed. It doesn’t mean that the unexpected or unwanted never happens. That would be pretty impossible right now, wouldn’t it?

Instead, with mindfulness, everything feels a little more under control. No, that’s not true. Mindfulness can help you feel a tiny bit empowered about how you respond to all that is going on around you. You cannot control it!

But it’s possible to feel a sense of tranquility and serenity, whatever happens. That’s the bit of control you do have.

Never be in a hurry, do everything quietly and in a calm spirit. Do not lose your inner peace for anything whatsoever, even if your whole world seems upset.

Francis de Sales
