Since you exist in only one moment at a time, to be serene you only need to be serene during that moment. You create serenity when you think serene thoughts and mentally picture serene scenes. You create serenity when you breathe slowly and deeply and relax your muscles. You create serenity when you vividly remember scenes of being serene. Regardless of how you have been at any given moment later on, you only need to be serene this moment. Repeat these last four words: Be serene this moment.
We're human. We need food. We need meaning and connection. And we most definitely need encouragement.

optimistic, and upbeat people.
