So this could be a really broad question, but I want to know specifically, how do you find peace at any given moment? You're having a mediocre day, maybe even a lousy day. You really want to get out of the funk and you want to feel better and calmer, right then and there. What do you do to find that serenity?
One thing that works really well for me is to sit down in a quiet spot, close my eyes, and listen to one of my favorite soul-lifting pieces of music. Ave Verum Corpus by Mozart is a piece I play myself (Liszt arranged it for the piano) but the version for choir that was composed by Mozart is the one I've been listening to and really connecting with lately. It's a sacred piece so it feels spiritually renewing to me, and of all of the composers I love so very much, I think Mozart's music is the most heavenly (Beethoven's too). I let it wash over me and it's like praying without the words.
So, your turn--how do you find peace? By calling a girlfriend? Sweating it out on a treadmill? Journaling or crafting? Taking a bath? (I fully approve of that one.) I'd love to know.
