Oct.27/21 – Every day brings a choice: to practice stress or to practice peace.

I came across this quote while reading today. It applies to all of us and I wanted to share. It’s a good reminder and may change the course of your day. We have a choice how we want to conduct ourselves. Some days are easier than others to put our goals into actions.

Practice peace.

Thank you to Dr. Joan Z. Borysenko for this reminder
