Serenity (Haiku)

calm amidst the storm
knowing that all things happen
as they should happen...


serenity of 
the mind lies in contentment
of a grateful heart...

Great haiku's - your words say so much and speak so much truth. I am lucky enough to have learned that lesson, and try each day to put it into practice. Thank you for your lovely words!

Being happy doesn't mean everything's perfect. It means you decide to see beyond the imperfections.

"Count your blessings. Once you realize how valuable you are and how much you have going for you, the smiles will return, the sun will break out, the music will play, and you will finally be able to move forward to the life that God intended for you with grace, strength, courage and confidence." ~ Og Mandino

If I could wish for my life to be perfect, it would be tempting, but I would have to decline, for life would no longer teach me anything.
