Unnoticed attitudes and thoughts
in the daily routine of life
often drain our peace.
In the brightness of days
that seem free of great trials or darkness,
we don’t notice that interior monologues
and mental harangues are
stealthily sapping our peace.
Criticism Resentment Fretting over annoyances Jealousy
Discontent Self-doubt Unresolved anger Worry
Deplete our Peace and dim our Joy.
When we sense unease
instead of assurance
we need to check the control panel of our life
and turn off peace-draining thoughts.
