Our word of the week is Tranquility.
Tranquility – is a noun.
It is defined by the Cambridge Dictionary as: a peaceful, calm state, without noise, violence, worry, etc.
When I think of tranquility my first inclination is to close my eyes, clear my mind and block out any noise. I take a deep breath in then relax my body while exhaling slowly. I might visualize a deep blue sky with a few fluffy white clouds drifting by.
It is a place of peace, comfort and contentment, where everything seems right with the world.
At times I find it when I am enveloped in nature.
Tranquility is often fleeting – lasting only a few short moments. While it is impossible to live in a constant state of tranquility, I think that embracing those tranquil moments is perhaps the antidote to the barrage of, stress and anxiety causing, news and noise that have become so prevalent in our lives.
I pray that you find much tranquility to embrace this year.
