Finding Inner Peace

You have to start with letting go of the thoughts in your head that make you sad, hurt angry and upset. I know it is easier said than done but, if you cannot change these things then dwelling on them does not change the situation and it solves nothing. Holding on to these disruption thoughts only makes you sick and robs you of your inner peace.

Lashing Out and Karma

Jackson Falls - Natchez Trace

Jackson Falls – Natchez Trace

I was having a conversation with a friend earlier about people from their past who have done them wrong, hurt them or were just plain ugly in their ways toward that person. My friend was quick to say, given the situation again, they would retaliate with angry but truthful words that they know would in kind, hurt that person back. They would fight dirty with dirty, throw stones as they were thrown at them. 

My reply was this: Just because someone else wants to get down on that level, doesn’t mean you have to as well. Take a step back from the situation and disconnect from it for a moment to see it for what it truly is. Ask yourself a few questions; is retaliation worth the karma for you to take on? Sending out negative energy into the world, is it worth the risk of it coming back to you? Do you allow yourself to entertain this negativity for a brief moment of feeling justified? That feel good moment does only last a very brief time. 

It’s easy to say these things when you aren’t in the middle of the dispute. I do know how hard it is to hold back when stones keep getting thrown in your direction. I have been on the receiving end many times in life and in many situations. I guess that is where my experience comes from and why today I would much rather choose to gather those stones and build a bridge than to throw them back. I’m certainly not saying I haven’t thrown some of those stones back, especially earlier in my years… but quite often, regret is on the back end of those stones that got thrown and once they hit their mark, they cannot be taken back, ever! 

So when a situation comes your way and someone is sending out negativity of any kind your way… step back, find your balance and don’t allow their negativity to flow over on to you. Or at least, do your best to not let the negativity control your emotions and actions.

No one can take your inner peace away from you unless you allow it.

No Longer the Seeker

Today while grinding some of my stained glass for a project I’m working on a thought came to mind… My thoughts were of how I was feeling at that very moment and about where I am right now in my life. I reflected for a moment about where I’ve come from and of the road that has brought me to right now.

I pondered all the seeking that I have done along the road and then thought …
“hmmmmm … what is it that I seek now?”

I couldn’t think of a single thing. (Which surprised me!)

It’s not that I don’t have anything left to learn.. it’s more so that I have found ME!

I found my place in this life and my purpose.. I have found what fills me and I have found my own inner happiness.

No longer do I feel that limbo, unknowing of where my road leads and of who I am or suppose to be.

I still have no idea where my road will go.. I’m just not so worried about it anymore.  Some may say that just comes with age.. where ever it came from, I don’t care. I just know that I am finally at peace inside myself. I am no longer afraid of what if and what’s next and that not knowing of the days to come. I take each day as it is and as it comes. No longer stressing daily of “OMG.. I need to know every step.. every turn.. every obstacle that may or may not be coming!”.

Today I am happy in LIVING LIFE.. enjoying all moments large and small.

Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.. that feels soooooooo good!


Many Blessings,
