When you wake up in the morning, is your mind racing? Do you fret about what other people think of you? Do you feel anxious, no matter how hard you try to stay calm?
Are you impatient with your impatience?
Luckily, the idea that you should always feel a sense of well-being and inner peace is a misconception. Life happens. Your spouse works late. Children get sick. You get a flat tire on your way to work. A friend hurts your feelings. You lose a pet or a loved one.
Feeling peaceful has nothing to do with what happens to us; it’s about learning the art of self-acceptance and mindfulness.
