TONI ASKS, "HOW DO YOU FIND INNER PEACE?"
Meditation helps, but given the circumstances, at times it is difficult to quiet the mind sufficiently for meditation to work. At those times, my mantra becomes "It won't last forever."
At other times, repetitive chores, or craft projects etc. can help shift my mind to the 'zen channel'. Anything that involves the hands, especially, is good for this effect: sewing, knitting, working with polymer clay and doing dishes by hand. Walking helps as well.
It's almost like pulling a "Scarlett O'Hara" and saying that I'll think about that another day. A conscious decision to put something on the back burner of my subconscious and work on another project for a while. Have you ever been missing an object and you look and look but cannot find it? Then when you stop looking for it, the item 'magically' appears?
