Yes life is tough, I am the first to admit it, but being a person who has just started to live life on my own terms at 40+, I wanted to create a life of contentment and peace. By contentment I don't mean to take everything life throws at me and to quietly accept it, but to be grateful for what I couldn't change and work towards what I could. So I came up with this list which has become my bible on days when I am not feeling so positive and upbeat about life. It's a list I made to create a life of simplicity and abundance, of utter silence from within and of pure peace.
