"Sometimes peace and serenity appear in our lives as boredom." [Shared by a speaker in an AA meeting.]
I've always been a chaos junkie--swept up in the manic highs and lows of constant activity. Ironically, I secretly long for quiet and solitude, a reprieve from the craziness. But why don't I leave space for this serenity? Maybe, it's my fear that the external calm will ratchet up the internal chatter or the disquiet of my mind. The lesson to be learned here is to be careful what you wish for because beneath the rough seas lies a darkness and a world of discovery.
