Cool and Calm

So nice in here today. We have been having a heat wave the past few days it is 27 or 28 degrees. In the shade it is lovely and breezy and I have the hammock out. (I've even been in it!) Inside tho it is truly wonderful! The house really cooled down last night and I have the shades closed. Its dark and cool with the soft hum of the fans going. I'm alone. I feel totally calm and peaceful. I feel like I can breathe this cool air, unlike the past few days where I feel that there is not enough air to breathe. I wish to be able to have this feeling of mindfulness and peace and being calm even when things in life are challenging...lots of challenging moments where I'd like to hold onto this feeling of empowerment.
