To me being calm and at peace is deeper than just an emotion. It's more of a destination, a safe spot, where you feel nothing but comfort. Comfort in knowing that you are loved and taken care of. Hope for the future. To be at peace is to be completely content. I believe we feel a stronger sense of peace sometimes more than others because we are imperfect people living in an imperfect place. There will always be storms to get through.
I've been recovering from surgery and have spent many days resting in bed. It hit me one day when I woke how calm and at peace I was; and as I looked around my room I saw reminders everywhere. I was sent gorgeous potted plants, which I LOVE more than just a bouquet of flowers, and many well wishes. Here are some of the images that reminded me that I was loved and helped me to feel calm and at peace.
