A Quiet Retreat

Nowhere can a man find and quieter or more untroubled retreat than in his own soul.

~ Marcus Aurelius

We live in a nonstop, noisy, go get em society….radios blasting, internet buzzing, texting, phones beeping…..no rest. No reprieve. No peace. There was a quieter, more innocent time. Ronnie Reagan won two elections with the promise to take us back to the 50’s when things were simpler and more peaceful…even more prosperous.  These days you get the wars, fighting and crime scenes right in your own living room. I pray for a happier medium. I like knowing the news, but I also like peace and quiet. How can we obtain that for ourselves. My solace is in my gardens.

Today’s Life Coach Action Plan: Just for today, I will create a quiet room or environment in my own home. It can be as simple as an easy chair in a corner of the bedroom. Now, I will put only spiritual books, maybe some candles, and silence in the surroundings.

Note: Please comment below and let me know how this works for you.
