I UNWIND IN PEACE AND LOVE.
When my day has not gone as I had hoped, I may have faced one challenge after another. Perhaps I was caught in snarled traffic, frustrated by a difficult class, or flustered by a temperamental child. I may want nothing more than to untangle my thoughts and feelings and unwind.
I get comfortable and begin to relax. With each breath, I release the day. I imagine a favorite place: the woods, a stream, the beach. Settling into this place, I imagine songbirds, trickling water, or the tide’s ebb and flow. I feel at one with the rhythm of this place as all else falls away.
I unwind even more as I recall those moments of the day when I gave or received a blessing: a kind word, a smile, a helping hand, a sincere compliment. These sweet memories restore balance and bring peace to my world.
But I have calmed and quieted my soul.—Psalm 131:2
