Rescue Word of the Week #13 – 2013: Serenity

The rescue word of the week is serenity.

Please help save this word from the endangered-word list by adopting it and using it in your thoughts, your speech, your writing, and your deeds.

What does this word mean to you?

My two cents (but please share yours):

Serenity is one of my favorite words. It is the emotional state I strive for each day. It starts with a few deep breaths–in for four counts, hold for four, out for four, hold empty for four, and repeat.



  1. This may sound like nitpicking, Ashley, but I don’t think true serenity can’t be attained by striving. I think the two terms are mutually exclusive. To me, serenity is a state of being based on resting in God’s will.

    • “Resting in God’s will” is a lovely description for serenity, David. Cheers, Ashley

  2. Oh yeah. I do a meditation often where I try to advance to a serene place through positive affirmations and breathing.

    • A very healthy practice, Patti. And a very good place to be when writing. Cheers, Ashley
