Enjoy Inner Peace Through Outer Order

We’ve been focusing on Happiness these last few days. But what happens if a lousy day raises its ugly head?

This week Gretchen Rubin of The Happiness Project wrote a post of ten strategies to help when we have a bad day.

The one that sooke loudest to me was:

4.  Seek inner peace through outer order. – Gretchen Rubin

Possibly because I’m prepping my campervan for sale and seriously trying to attain outer order. Things feel so peaceful when there’s outer order.

Prevention is better than cure, so having some coping strategies up our sleeves in advance makes good sense.

In writing close to the daily 1500 word target, thanks to a delayed school run.

Benji and I took a walk to see the swan and all her eggs are still warm and whole underneath her. As the eggs hatch, the daddy will come and take them on his back, leaving mum to look after the baby’s left to hatch. Then they’ll all leave the nest area together.

May your day be filled with fun,  overcoming obstacles and creating order.

  1. Hi Carron

    I have been following your daily posts and really enjoying your uplifting messages.

    I just read that you are going to sell your camper, are you going to buy another one or have you decided to not go camping anymore? I am trying to decide whether or not to buy one and can’t decide if it is a good idea as I have never owned or travelled in one.

    How is living on the farm going, sounds idyllic with having the stream going through.

    Cheers Ann

    1. Hi Ann,
      I’m upgrading my camper to the next size up, and all going well, I’m going to get traveling.
      I suggest you hire one first to see if you like camping. If you hire through THL, they have a try before you buy program. They will refund your hire when / if you decide to buy.
      Delighted your enjoying the posts.
      It’s a dual benefit, for you and me too.
