Come in Peace

I mention this time and time again in this space. Spirituality is my jam. 2 years ago I decided to reconnect with myself in a big way. Since then I’ve had so many humbling, joyful moments. Some people seek out inner peace, and although I think we all do, I also don’t think it’s something we ever fully obtain. Peace comes and goes like the tide. That’s life – ebb and flow. But those moments of peace? Those are all that matter.

  • Feeling the warm rays of the sun on my skin
  • Smelling the salty air as I listen to the waves crash
  • Feeling the cool water lap at my feet as I stand on the blue horizon
  • Speeding through the air, above the clouds
  • Seeing my niece smile and hearing her laugh. Further, listening to her put full conversations together without skipping a beat (her 4 year old intelligence leaves me in awe sometimes)
  • Completing the workout you almost bailed on
  • Pushing through that hard set when really, all you want to do is tap out. 
  • Speeding down the tarmac as we're about to take off
  • Visiting new places
  • Seeing a rainbow after a rain shower
  • Jumping into a pool or the ocean on a hot summer day
  • Taking that first bite out of a delicious slice of pizza
  • My cats interrupting me because they want to be pet
  • Trying on clothes and having them fit perfectly
  • Being told you did a "good job"
  • Making someone else smile
  • Helping someone, for no reason other than wanting to
  • The first blanket of snow when it's still clean and white and it muffles all the sound


  1. I agree with so many of these! Finding clothes that fit on the first try and hearing someone tell me "good job" makes me feel SO good!

  2. I'm making homemade pizza for supper and I'm already eagerly anticipating the first bite! Being interrupted by the cat looking for a head pat does put a smile on my face, regardless of what time of day it is!

  3. So many of these make me smile. Of course, the parts about flying and oceans make me cringe and I'd replace them with snow and staying home, but those differences make the world go round.

  4. 'Completing the workout you almost bailed on' - YES. and letting my cats interrupt me is the best. of course making someone else smile or laugh always makes me happy.

  5. All of this. Getting into the water really is one of the most freeing things. Hard to be concerned with much else when you're in the ocean.

  6. I love reading these types of posts because just reading about these different things puts me at peace. I love flying.
