“To be serene is to refuse to be threatened either by imaginary possibilities or by personal conflict with anyone, past or present.”

[Joan Chittister, The Monastic Way]


How much attention do we give other’s comments or criticism? How much do we sacrifice in trying to be someone we are not?

“A wise man,” Michel Eyquem De Montaigne tells us, “never loses anything if he have himself.”


May this day bless you with confidence in knowing and being yourself.
