Be careful and choose wisely what you allow to occupy the stage of your dominate thoughts, for truly the quality of your thinking determines the happiness of your life. “Man is made or unmade by himself. In the armory of thought he forges the weapons by which he destroys himself. He also fashions the tools with which he builds for himself heavenly mansions of joy and strength and peace.” –James Allen (from his inspiring book ‘As A Man Thinketh’)
Our peace comes from within, so our circumstances aren't the cause of our problems or lack of peace, it's an internal weakness in our thinking that must be built up to give us peace even in chaotic, tumultuous or adverse circumstances.
