Boredom Or Serenity Do You Know The Difference

07 August 2017 Written by 

At a meeting this week, two members were admitting that they were a little bored with their current life. But then they realized that it felt boring because they were no longer living in chaos and anxiety. Surprise! What does life feel like without craziness? It feels like serenity.

 

I remember the first time I felt serenity in my life, I stopped in wonder and said to myself out loud, “This must be what serenity feels like!!” I had never lived in a peaceful place before, and didn’t know what it felt like to live in quiet, peaceful serenity.

 

So there you have it. Life without chaos and anxiety and fear = peaceful serenity. That beautiful, exquisite peace is not boredom – it is serenity! What a journey to get there, to find a quiet mind and no turmoil going on within or without. It’s bliss.

 

I am hungry and thirsty for this life of serenity. I will not give it up easily. I will always work toward that place where I enter and live in quiet serenity.

Raised on a dairy farm in upstate NY, I learned to work hard along with my five siblings. I grew up in a very conservative Mennonite-Amish church which shaped a lot of my fundamental core values and beliefs. After moving to Florida to attend college, I married and became mother to five children. Eventually, my unmanageable life came to a crashing halt and I found my way into an Al-Anon recovery program. Recovery has affected every area of my life and I love sharing the things I am learning with others so that they might also find hope for their own recovery.
