My latest success wallpaper is finally finished. I've went back and forth as to which image I thought would best suit this topic. I finally decided it was to be the one you see here.

I call my newest wallpaper - on which the topic is focused on - "Tranquility". This brings my number of motivational wallpapers up to 73 now for my gallery.

This great shot (see source credit at the bottom for details) reminded me of how important it is at times to step away from the busyness of life and calm yourself inside.

I recently had the chance to get away last weekend myself - my first vacation in over a year - to a place that has grown very meaningful to me over the years. While though the weather wasn't the greatest when I went there, I still felt that being there helped me to regain a sense of tranquility that I sorely needed. It really felt good to get away and "reset" myself.

Now, you don't necessarily need to take a vacation to find tranquility. You can do this anywhere at any time. (Some would even say taking a vacation adds more stress because of the planning, traveling, and extra costs.)

I feel that the key is to find a place and schedule that won't compete for your attention and allow you to find a place that can lift you up physically, mentally, and spiritually.

Why am I making a point about all this? Because if stress is really something we make ourselves (and I do believe that it is), then it can be unmade through a calmness of mind, and allow an overworked or even troubled mind to think clearly again.
