Our society feeds on drama. Probably everyone reading this likes a good dramatic story. I know I do.
But the way they tell stories is different than real life. The fact is, amongst all the plot twists of life, we have an undercurrent of peace. I don't embrace it as much as I want to or probably should sometimes, but it's always there.
Extremes of emotions take over occasionally--along with the random episodes of complete irrationality,--but we are held together by a force of divine tranquil. It makes all the drama less dramatic and all the trauma less traumatic.
Our lives are not even close to boring, but they're closer to serene than you may think.
