What Is Peace.....Is peace merely the absence of war, or is it tranquility despite the conflict? Is happiness the absence of suffering, or is it contentment despite the imperfections? I believe we can be happy in a world that is already broken, and have inner peace in the midst of chaos. We can be in a frustrating situation but choose not to get frustrated, and we can find bliss in less-than-ideal situations. Happiness is a choice. Instead of focusing on how much better things "could be", appreciate how great things already are. Approach each moment with gratitude, and you will not only stop experiencing life from a place of lack, you will experience abundance! And THAT is luxury. THAT is being rich!
