Peace of mind quotes can flip a switch on your attitude if you let them.  Peace of mind is one of my core values and it is an essential element to becoming grounded in my calm place.  Finding ways to create a sense of inner peace, an inner calm, can help you to navigate your path to the ultimate self-care practice.

Relying on the wisdom of others can help you shift your perspective when chaos takes hold.  Compiling this wisdom for you is my way of building a bridge for you to begin down that path.
