14 ways to find Serenity Amid the chaos

“Serenity is not freedom from the storm, but peace amid the storm.”

Our lives are lived at full speed. It can feel like there’s no slow motion option, no slow lanes where we can knock down the speed for a little while and no timeouts to use – it’s just life played at the speed of sound. Urgency is our new normal and it defines the pace of our day.

But there is a better way. There is a way to take back our time; to reclaim our peace of mind and to find solace amid the chaos. There is a way to find serenity again.

Serenity is the oasis in the middle of the busyness. It’s the place where we can refuel before heading back into the fray. Serenity is the place where we can find ourselves when we have become too busy to look.

Serenity doesn’t have to be just a wish. It can become a reality when you take specific steps to find it. Consider the following 14 ways to find serenity. And when you do, be sure to stop, relax and enjoy the beautiful life you are creating, – even when it’s being obscured by the supersonic vapor trails.

Step away
Unplug, disconnect and step away from your routine – if only for a little while. The way you keep in touch with others can be what’s keeping you out of touch with you. Shut the lid to your computer’s laptop and power down your Smartphone. Take a few minutes to consider nothingness and then feel your mind fill up with newfound clarity.

Find fresh air
There is a world full of brilliant, fresh smells. The crispness of a gentle breeze, the fragrance of fresh-cut grass, and the aroma of lilacs, azaleas and honeysuckle wait for your pleasure. Open the door and breathe in fresh air that is powerful enough to recharge your spirit.

Hit reset
It isn’t the reset button has stopped working; it may be you have stopped looking for it. When things seem overwhelming, reach into the middle of the chaos and allow your faith to find it. You find it by asking for clarification when you lack understanding; you find it by asking others to go a little slower and you find the reset button by acknowledging when you need a little help. Hitting the reset button is not a sign of weakness; it’s a sign of the amazing power you have over your life.

Smile
Taking a moment to see the brighter side can reinvigorate your mind and soul. Smile at the slow-moving checkout lines; smile at the rude store clerk and smile at yourself when a mistake is made. Laughter, along with your smile, brings serenity to even the most stressful situation.

Trust your inner wisdom
When you hear your inner wisdom, your inner voice, speak to you, it may be a good idea to listen. Your inner wisdom knows you better than anyone. It knows when you feel tired, discouraged and impatient. When it says, “slow down,” respect what you hear. Your inner wisdom will take you to serenity when you trust enough to follow it.

Forgive yourself
Being angry is exhausting. Anger takes energy and time. When you make a mistake, acknowledge it, own it and then forgive yourself. Regret hurts your soul; but forgiveness frees it. And in the freedom, serenity is waiting.

Create a Blessings list
Finding time to recognize the blessings in your life is an opportunity to focus on the positive. Find a quiet place, grab paper and pen and write down the wonderful things, the blessings, in your life. When you are finished, absorb the words and allow their goodness to take you to place of indescribable bliss.

Remember…no one is perfect.
Life isn’t about getting it right all of the time; it’s about making the most of the time you have to live it. Perfection breeds anxiety. Let go of the notion you have to do more to be perfect and embrace the truth you are perfect just the way you are. When you do, a peaceful calm will meet you right where you are.

Be grateful
Rather than focusing on what you don’t have, be grateful for what you do have. By living in a grateful state you are opening channels that will lead you to finding serenity in not just the extraordinary things, but in the ordinary things as well.

Wellness
When your body is worn-down and tired, your mind and spirit will quickly follow. Put good things in your body, exercise, and pay attention to the aches and pains. Make your body strong so your soul will be well.

Step into nature
Stepping into nature can be a bridge from stress and to serenity. There is a simple tranquility about being outside. The noise dissipates and the air feels cleaner. Nature provides a natural decompression chamber that will return your body to a state of peace.

Sleep
Sleep is the wild card in finding serenity. Without adequate sleep, fatigue, anxiety and depression can feel overwhelming. But with ample sleep, you have a better chance, a fighting chance, for clarity to guide you.

Celebrate small victories
Take time to celebrate each victory – no matter its size. If you on a diet and refrain from eating a desert; celebrate that. If you worked through your day’s to-do list; celebrate that. If you made it to the gym; celebrate that. Small victories create self-confidence and self-confidence creates self-love and love creates serenity.

Learn to say no
It’s difficult sustaining the habit of being all things to all people. When you do, you leave little for yourself. Saying “no,” is setting a boundary that is reasonable, and healthy. Saying “no,” gives you an opportunity to say “yes,” to your need for peace, happiness and serenity.

Yes, it is worth it



Life is like a big bike race where the goal is to fulfill you personal legend.

At the start, we are riding together, sharing the camaraderie and enthusiasm. But as the race progresses, the initial joy gives way to the real challenges tiredness, monotony and doubts about our own abilities.

We notice that some have withdrawn. They are still running, but only because they cannot stop in the middle of a road. They are numerous, pedaling alongside the support car, talking to each other and performing only their obligations.

Eventually we distance ourselves from them and we are forced to face the loneliness and the surprises of the unknown curves with the bikes. And after a while, we begin to wonder if it’s worth the effort.

Yes, it is worth it. Just don’t quit.

Beautiful Ever................

Yaa Sayidee Irham lanaa

O’my Master, be merciful towards us

In nilta ya reehas sabaa yowman Ilaa aardil haram
Ballig salaami rowdatan feehan nabiyyul muhtaram

O Winds! If someday you pass by the sacred land, then pass my salaams
before the Rauza-e-Azqas where the most exalted Nabi (saw) rests

Maw wajhuhoo shamsud duhaa man khadduhoo badrud dujhaa
Man zaatuhoo noorul hudaa man kaffuhoo bahrul hamam

He who’s blessed face is the midday sun and his blessed cheeks are the full moon
He who’s self is the light of guidance and who’s generosity is an ocean

Qur’aanuhoo burhaanoonaa faskhal li’adyaanin madat
Iz jaa’a naa ahkaamuhoo kulloos suhufi saaral adam

The Qur’aan is our source that shows the other religions are abbrogated,
when it’s rules and regulation came to us the other books became like non-existing

Akbaadunaa majruhatun min sayfi hijril mustafaa
Tubaa li ahleey baladatin feehan nabiyyool muhthashaam

The Sadness of separation from Madinah feels like a sword stuck deep into my liver
How fortunate are the people of that city in which is the Exalted and Beloved Prophet (saw)

Ya Rahmatal lilaalameen Anta shafi ul muznibeen
Akrim lanaa yowmal ha’zeen fadlaw wa joodaw wal karam

O’ Mercy for All the worlds!, you are the intercessor for the sinners
Shower your blessings upon us on the day of grieve (Judgment)

Ya Rahmatal lilaalameen Adrik li zainil aabeedeen
Mahboosi aydiz zaalimeen fil mowkabee wal muzdahaam

O Rahmatulil Aalameen! Assist Zainil Abideen.
Who is standing alone and in difficulty amongst the tyrants.

A boy was watching his grandmother write a letter. At one point he asked
‘Are you writing a story about what we’ve done? Is it a story about me?’
His grandmother stopped writing her letter and said to her grandson
I am writing about you, actually, but more important than the words is the pencil I’m using. I hope you will be like this pencil when you grow up.’

Intrigued, the boy looked at the pencil. It didn’t seem very special.
‘But it’s just like any other pencil I’ve ever seen!’

‘That depends on how you look at things. It has five qualities which, if you manage to hang on them, will make you a person who is always at peace with the world.’

‘First quality you are capable of great things, but you must never forget that there is a hand guiding your steps. We call that hand God, and He always guides us according to His will.’
‘Second quality now and then, I have to stop writing and use a sharpner. That makes the pencil suffer a little, but afterwards, he’s much sharper. So you, too, must learn to bear certain pains and sorrows, because they will make you a better person.
‘Third quality the pencil always allows us to use an eraser to rub out any mistakes. This means that correcting something we did is not necessarily a bad thing; it helps to keep us on the road to justice.’
‘Fourth quality what really matters in a pencil is not its wooden exterior, but the graphite inside. So always pay attention to what is happening inside you.’
‘Finally, the pencil’s fifth quality it always leaves a mark. in just the same way, you should know that everything you do in life will leave a mark, so try to be conscious of that in your every action’
