Something About Peace

Updated: Aug 7, 2023



After a long walk by the water, I sat in the park alone, refreshing and decompressing. I started to think about where things have been within the past year and where they're going in my life. It’s been a while since I’ve been on social media. I missed posting for my birthday, and new marketing campaigns. Aside from a myriad of reasons, events within the last 7 months were a true test of character and faith. I didn’t pass every test, but I’m still better for it. Nonetheless I’m reflecting on the very near future and how there’s something about peace in the present. My sons graduation was a major milestone…an epilogue of sorts. Remembering the day he was born and the promise I made as I held him…gave me a sense of peace and accomplishment.


There’s a confidence to knowing you’re entering a new chapter…and that for every setback and distraction piled onto another, it was in preparation for greater things. Being extremely private, I haven’t shared any losses or wins. Even in moments where I wanted to.


The later is starting to double. In conclusion, life is beautiful. While we’re imperfect people in an imperfect world…there’s always perfect moments and perfect opportunities. For those moments…we don’t have to be perfect. We just have to be ready. When you’re ready, that stillness gives a sense of peace. There’s something about it.
