If you want a peaceful, harmonious life you have to work at it.

By harmonious I mean, balanced, congenial, relaxed… a life where you are in tune with yourself, surrounded by people with whom you have reciprocal liking and respect, a life that is marked by tranquility and contentment and where you feel appreciated, valued and understood.

Does this sound like a tall order, a tad idealistic? Maybe it does but then that’s the way aspirations can sound, especially to people who don’t have or maybe don’t believe in them.

Coming back to my opening line; harmony doesn’t mean the absence the things that disturb and upset us. That would be impossible, and it would also mean that we’d be under-stimulated, bored and boring.

Striving for a harmonious life means actively working towards it by giving our attention to aspects of life that are harmony-enhancing.
