I have a favorite quote that I once saw on an inspirational magnet in one of those cool specialty shops that sells things like monogrammed cocktail napkins and beaded dog collars. I didn’t buy the magnet because I’m cheap and it was expensive. Instead, I took a picture of it with my phone so I could remember exactly what it said. I’m sure that’s somehow bad Karma, but I couldn’t help it – the quote is fabulous. It has become sort of my mantra:
“Peace. It does not mean to be in a place where there is no noise, trouble or hard work. It means to be in the midst of those things and still be calm in your heart”.
