Discouragement slips with stealth into the mind. How do we prevent apprehensions and other nightmares from entering? Practice presence. Have that sensation of Presence memorized, to act as a shield when needed.
Do not let the little sneak attack you. You feel it? Look your saboteur straight in the eye and then release, without rancor.
Continue creating your haven, the peace you’re trying to cultivate in the form of home. Simple, warm, spacious.
