Serenity Sunday in September

How Do You Seek Serenity?



It’s our second Sunday in September. The leaves have already started their fall foliage change of colors. Today it finally feels like it’s approaching FALL in Maine, because the temperatures and humidity levels have been in the 90s and higher for most of the summer.

Since it’s Serenity Sunday on my blog topic schedule, I am endeavoring to focus on things that promote calmness, peace, and positivity.



Listening to what’s on the music list today...




Appreciating that clean is calming! I don’t know about you, but I feel calmer, and more at peace, when my surroundings are clean. So this morning, I took care of a few household chores I didn’t get to yesterday. After washing dishes and putting laundry away, I feel more like I can sit, relax, and bask in the serenity of the day.

Hubby tended to yard work and enjoyed his garden, and I enjoyed my music and the serene sleeping pets inside.





Socializing with social media! Now I’m engaging in social media tasks: posting on Facebook, visiting groups on Facebook, and – of course – blogging, visiting and reading other blogs, and commenting.

One of the benefits of being involved in blog groups on Facebook is the opportunity to network with other bloggers and to help promote our mutual blogging endeavors. My goal today is to make sure I’m caught up on reciprocating with the commenting on and sharing of other people’s blogs.

I *also* definitely want and need to start responding to all of you who are so kind to leave comments for me here on my blog! I do appreciate you and your comments, and I also appreciate those of you who have signed up to receive blog posts and other information by email.

I’m working on a freebie downloadable give-away for everyone on my list — and I am planning to have special inexpensive downloadable gifts starting in October! 😉


So What About YOU?


How is your Sunday going? Are you doing anything special?


Do you strive for a relaxing day on Sunday, before another work week begins on Monday?

    What a great “quote” you have quoted. I agree with you Inner peace is everything, otherwise, your life becomes very hard.
    I am glad, I found your website. A lot of good stuff. Thank you for visiting as well.

    Wonderful theme! Sunday was spent in the mountains – my favorite place to find serenity. I have been actively working to bring love into my life and I’m happy to say I may have found him… Sunday being the day we had “the talk” about seeing it through. Meditating is generally a way that I find serenity too, and now I can meditate on gratitude for ending my search and I can focus on an intention for the best result!

    I really don’t find cleaning calming, I rather listen to music or meditate. Loved your blog and the good energy you are spreading.

    This Sunday was extra special because it was the start of the pro football season. Watching sports is one of the ways that I escape daily life and relax.

    I wish I could see cleaning as calming – my house would be a lot cleaner! haha I tend to gravitate toward listening to music or reading a book.

    I am with you! I need to find some inner calmness and peace in my life. I tend to be a worry wort and I stress about stressing out. What’s my problem! Thanks for the motivation to find that!

    I always have a special day every Sunday because that is only the time for us to make good memories since all of us are working for that whole week.

    My Sunday means time spent with my family. I love things doing together that can be a walk in the park or visiting a new place!

    I hope we get some fall weather soon! On Sundays, I often do some light stretching, and I find that really calms me down. My family is all about sports, so as the non sports fan, I get some time to myself.

    This is the day that we have more the time together a great quality time in the house or even going outside.

    It is definitely calming when it’s cleaning. It actually affects my mood and I can think properly.

    I definitely could use more serenity in my life… It’s so chaotic! Also, My house is a crazy mess and I keep trying to get it organized and failing…

    Serenity is definitely something we can all use a bit of! When my home and office are organized, I feel more at ease and give myself permission to go ahead and relax.

    I actually use classical music to help find my peace. It helps get my work done.

    I try so hard to relax on Sunday, but as a single busy mama of 3, I always find myself finishing up tasks to complete or start the new week. The days I get to relax with nothing to do is great though

    Sundays are the days I review the week and plan the upcoming one. And guess what? I do this with classic or saxophone music in the background 🙂

    I tried to surround myself with positive thoughts and people. It’s so important to always see the positive side of things.

    Peace is a really important part of the life, and with such a hectic schedule, i just feel like sleeping on Sunday. but I do meet with close friends and family, to keep my mind off from all the troubles, i face in weekdays, that helps me keep calm

    I think I will try to do some cleaning this Sunday. It would be such a lot of fun. I know it’s weird to say it’s fun but I agree that there is a peaceful feeling at the end of it all which I love.

    I love all of these sayings. I didn’t do much over the weekend but, my week has been pretty good so far.

    Love all of these sayings.. I always try to surround myself with positive things but I still need to learn how to be calm.

  22. Lynndee - September 17, 2018 Reply

    Yes, I always look forward to Sunday because it’s our family day and also our chill day or lazy day. We don’t do any chores on Sunday and just relax and watch movies.
