Frantic Friday #17 - Find One Place of Peace

Having a place of peace is an important part of maintaining personal sanity.

In my house I try and have one place I can always go that is calm.  I don't want to look at junk, I don't want to hear noise and I don't want to see unfinished projects. I want peace.

For me that is my master bedroom. I try and keep that one room free of clutter and noise so that when I am there I am happy and calm. (Do you see that big grin on my face just thinking about it?)

I would suggest on this Frantic Friday that you identify a place of peace in your surroundings.  Maybe it is your bedroom, but it could also be a corner chair with fluffy pillows and a beautiful view out of the window.  Your peaceful place could be a bench in the garden or a chair by the pool.  Wherever you find your peaceful place, remember to preserve the qualities that bring you peace.

It may feel weird to etch out a tiny corner of the universe to feel peaceful, but trust me, you will be a much happier person if you do.


  1. Much of the time, it's actually at the gym, but I do love my nighttime computer time with my husband's company as well. And the sauna before bed is certainly a solitude oportunity. Just me and my reading.

  2. Ahhh, the sauna before bed. What a nice idea. Maybe I could kick one of the kids out of their room and make it into a sauna. Hmmm, I bet that wouldn't go over too well, darn. Thanks for the ideas. I'm glad you have a place of peace too.
