Serenity is not freedom from the storm but peace within the storm.
color: white with turquoise swirls
gemstones: lapis lazuli, amethyst
One of my personal myths used to be that serenity can only be experienced when life is in perfect order. The house clean, yard tiptop, bills paid, clutter if not organized then at least stacked in countless neat piles, dogs exercised, letters written, phone calls returned, emails sent, to-do list done... in short, life must be perfectly under control and only THEN would I feel serenity. Well, that myth is a bunch of hooey.
Serenity does not follow perfection because perfection is an unrealistic and unachievable goal that every single one of us needs to let go of. Serenity is a daily practice that involves moment-by-moment acceptance as well as action. The quote on this candle sums it up perfectly. May this candle help you practice serenity in your life.
