How many of us realise that our own Sanctuary sits within us, that inner place of peace and contentment that so many of us fail to get in touch with because we are so busy running away from situations and everyday life.

I’ve heard people say “If only we could go back and visit somewhere, it was so peaceful and idyllic”

But what is stopping them from sitting in silence and reliving their experiences. Could it be the TV or radio or other time pressing commitments? There’s not enough hours in a day. My time is not my own. I have to think of everybody else all the time.

Does that make you feel like a special person, do you feel appreciated, important even? Does it make you feel worthwhile.????

REALLY: Is your life that full that you don’t get the time to relax at some point throughout the day to get in touch with your inner sanctuary.

If the answer to that question is yes, then you have my sympathy. I found out from experience that the only person that makes you do that to yourself is you. Find some time just for you. Your memory is a powerful tool. Transport yourself back to a happy time. Feel the emotions, taste, smells and visions it’s all there waiting for you.

Life is too short, enjoy. ❤️


  1. It’s true, Elaine. Take a few minutes and get in touch with yourself, what your feeling, what’s happening. Interestingly someone on line mentioned grieving…and that at this point in time, we are grieving…the loss of not only personal freedom (having to stay in doors) no physical contact with anyone family friends or acquaintances, and that we need to accept and acknowledge that. It’s true.

  2. Wonderful!!! I feel exactly like this these days, I found my inner sanctuary made of harmony and serenity.
    As if I were immersed in an alternative world, I feel calm and relaxed. When I write and draw the world around me seems to stop,my consciousness is immersed in my little inner world! 😇❤

  3. Spot on, Elaine. Tapping into our own Place of Peace and Tranquility provides the much needed rest and relaxation in an instant. Just go there to feel the benefits! Everything begins within! Fabulous post.
