at peace

...what a concept. how hard is that, to be "at peace"? it seems almost unattainable (esp for one who thrives on change). BUT... i've had an epiphany.

maybe being at peace doesn't have to do with liking where you are or what is happening in your life, but realizing that life is going to be hard, and there will be ups and downs, but that's okay, and that beauty can be found even in the darkest of times.

realizing that made me feel that i was going to be okay, that having your life in order or being content does not equal being at peace. no, it is taking the good and the bad in stride, and trusting that God is there to carry you through both, and you can always learn something and grow some more.

that is my new vision, and i know that no matter what happens, i can be at peace.
