Imagine going to a movie where everyone behaves well, everything is provided without any stress, there are no challenges and nothing to overcome. Dull, right? Humans love drama. Without something going on, we tend to get a little bored. That's okay; there is a reason we are wired this way.
Some of us like a lot of drama, others not so much. Sometimes we get pulled into it by other people. Maybe they are poking us to get a reaction to propel their dramatic storyline forward. In these moments, we have a choice. We accept the role they are offering by reacting.
Peace is never farther away than our own hearts. We always have the option to place a hand on our chest, say, "I choose peace," and walk away.
