I make the most of all that comes and the least of all that goes.

Many of your distractions are there because you think you need them. Quiet your thoughts and those distractions will go away.

Let go of those worries and surrender those doubts that only serve to clutter your awareness. Silence the chatter of your thoughts for a while and experience the joy of simply being who you are.

Quiet your mind and suddenly the distractions which seemed so overwhelming feel like they’re a million miles away. Sink deeper into the awareness of being here in this moment and leave behind the worries, the fears and the doubts.

Step back from the turmoil of your frenzied thoughts and in the quiet stillness focus your awareness on what is truly important to you. Experience the clarity of perspective that serenity can bring.

Beyond thinking and worrying and wondering and judging and analyzing and agonizing is a powerful, refreshing, energizing place. Experience the value that serenity can bring.
