What is SERENITY?

The other day I was looking at the Serenity Prayer by Reinhold Niebuhr posted on my refrigerator. These questions started popping into my head about the word SERENITY.

  • What does having serenity in my life really mean?
  • Can I truly have serenity in my life?
  • Do I have serenity at this moment?

These are very good questions for self-reflection and journaling. This is what my understanding of what serenity meant before I looked up the definition. Having serenity means to me being calm, relaxed, satisfied and at peace with where you are in life. I guess the biggest question to answer about SERENITY is: If I don’t have it, “What should I be doing to get it”?

Below is the dictionary definition of SERENITY:

calmness, hush, peace, peacefulness, placidity, quiet, quietness, quietude, repose, restfulness, sereneness, calm, still, stillness, or tranquility.

 

It would be great to get some replies back about what all of you think serenity means and how do you think we can obtain it?
