What is Fiercely Serene?

You’re in for a treat.

Because this is just the beginning.  The first post of an exciting new chapter in my life.  I’m moving forward and doing my best to not look back.  So much has happened already…  This blog is months too late to capture the beginning of my journey, but I’ll do my best to make up for it!  And of course, there’s everything yet to come…

But first, why Fiercely Serene?

Balance.  That’s what it’s all about.  You know the story: yin and yang, dark and light, good and evil.  The search for balance is older even than history.  Even if you don’t realize it, you’re looking for balance too in some personal way.  My journey for personal balance has taken many twists and turns over the course of several decades.  Now it has settled here.

For me, the balance boils down to an internal battle between my inherent fierceness and my desire for serenity.  I’m learning to balance my passionate fire with more tranquil waters.  So far, my steps towards a more balanced future have brought more happiness to my life than I’ve maybe ever had at one time.  I’d say that seems to be working!  But I also want to keep pressing for more.

Happiness is addictive.

Come along for the journey.
