Today I am going to take the time to make the choices that bring me serenity. It seems strange but a lot a time that is all there is to it in life. Yes, there are plenty of external pressures and influences, life is full of incidents and accidents, but serenity as we move though the incidents and accidents of life is almost always a choice – and a simple choice at that.
It is nice and quiet here at the office – I arrived a little earlier than anticipated this morning, in part because by the grace of the God of Commuting I had a smooth drive in, hitting every single light on the expressway. In traffic, as in fluid dynamics, there is a sweet spot. If you manage to hit that sweet spot then the flow of traffic is without turbulence. Sometimes, finding that sweet spot is a choice as well.
So, settle in, enjoy your coffee (if you drink coffee) and find your way into a serene day.
