Inner Peace

A friend of mine shared a post from Symptoms of Inner Peace today on Facebook. Upon reading it I realized that I have been way more at peace this weekend than I can remember being for a long time. Months!

I've been working on accepting life for what it is, and people for who they are. I've come to understand that I cannot change these things. I have to just accept them and move forward. Go on.

Getting upset with someone over something that I cannot change is a waste of energy. I don't have any energy to spare right now so I've been trying to conserve, and it is working. I actually had a really great weekend. I enjoyed time out with friends, did some DIY projects with my husband, and we had a lunch date.

I'm hoping this trend continues for me. I've been praying that we get this house sold and that our family can be reunited. I am hopeful that tonight's home showing produces an offer, and that it is enough to pay for the mortgage, the Realtor and closing fees!

I leave you with the post I read on Facebook last night.
