My Place of Peace
You’ll never find peace of mind until you listen to your heart.
Everyone needs a place of peace. As I sit in the back corner of the Fenn School library, the sound of silence engulfs me. Relative silence in the library is all I need after a stressful and long day of work. I need a place to have time to reflect and think about the events of my day. So often I can swept away by the different aspects of life (schoolwork, grades, extracurriculars, etc.), I need time to settle down. I was tired, stressed out from an intense day of school work. I needed a place to gain composure and unwind. As I looked around, desperate for an escape from school, I instantly thought of the library. I speed-walked over to my favorite part of the library, the back corner. I put down my backpack and sat down on the spotted orange-red armchair, right next to the large window. The isolation and comfort prompted a sense of peace and relief that everything would be okay. So often I get carried away and stressed out from life. I put a lot of pressure on myself to have good grades and do well in my classes, so when I don’t do well it creates an unwanted level of stress. I need a place to reflect about the more important aspects of life. I need a place to relax and not think about grades. Everyone has a place to themselves, what’s yours?
