Some days my life runs smoothly like a gentle river. Other days it feels more like white-water rapids. That is until I remember my 3 steps to inner peace.
1. Remember to pick your battles. You don’t have to argue your point or win every time. Remember the saying, “don’t sweat the small stuff, and it’s all small stuff”. Repeat that over and over until whatever frustration you’re feeling disappears.
2. Healthy living – nourishing and taking care of your mind, body, and spirit are essential. Exercise regularly, eat healthy at least 75% of the time, find something to believe in and hope for. Nourish your mind with laughter, positive thoughts, and a spirit of thankfulness every day.
3. This too shall pass. There is always tomorrow and a new day with new possibilities. Sometimes when I think my life is at an all-time low, I hear someone else’s story that makes my pain pale in comparison.
Find your inner strength and nourish it. Remember that turbulence is a natural part of the human experience. Regardless of outer circumstances, we can always find a river of calm in Spirit. Turn within to find your peace, that’s where it is, not in the world around you.
