Find strength within yourself when it seems the strength you thought you had in others has slipped away. When you have been let down by the ones you thought would always have your back, find that courage in yourself to keep pressing on without them. Surprisingly in that you will find a peace in yourself that you may have forgotten or didn’t even know was there. This is the Peace of self confidence. Know that the purpose you have been blessed with is what needs to shine. Love yourself & be yourself. Peace & Love ♡ ☆
Do something that is totally independent of anyone else. Is there a task that you have been putting off or feel inadequate about taking on because of fear or some other feeling that is holding you back? Take a still moment and envision yourself accomplishing this task. Allow yourself to feel the way it will feel when you have completed it. Now, put your elbow to the grind and work at it! Each step you take is closer to your goal, & will build your self confidence knowing that you have what it takes and did what you needed to accomplish it. Give thanks for this and press on!

To obtain a goal in life, one must embody the characteristics that will attract and/or create that goal. Today’s goal and every day after this day is to obtain and maintain Peace. Peace: freedom from disturbance; quiet and tranquility. Why is this important? In our everyday lives we are constantly faced with the pressures of having to do some thing. We are always thinking of ways to stay busy and yet feigning for ways to have less to do. To be at peace, the first step is to be still. Be still & listen. Listen to that inner voice that guides you to that quiet place within, and take a moment to embrace it. When you come back to the movement of everyday life, be thankful to know that at anytime you can retreat to that place of serenity and solitude to help you in getting to a place of tranquility to deal with the pressures of this life. Love yourself & be yourself. Peace & Love ♡ ☆
To do this, find a quiet place and sit with your eyes closed. Don’t feel pressure to have to sit cross legged in a room with incense and candles. This is helpful but not always attainable depending where you are. Today is step one in teaching yourself how to be still and focus on that stillness while being comfortable. As you sit, focus on your breath, breathing slowly and methodically. Inhale. Exhale. Feel the way your body feels as you do this and relax each muscle in your body as you exhale. Let any tension melt away and let the peacefulness of the moment grow. Start with just 2mins today to get used to the feel of being still and quiet (you can set a timer). Once your 2mins are up take a moment to reflect on what you felt. Maybe now your outlook has grown into a more clearer perspective. Maybe you feel lighter from the burden of your stresses. Maybe you just feel sleepy 🙂 all or one or some is okay. But the goal is to feel less stress because now you have taken time to replenish your Spirit. Find time to do this daily, increasing the length of time, and feel the benefits of staying connected Spiritually.
“Meditate on what is good, because what you think of is what you will sepak of, and what you speak of is what you will bring to your heart and what you bring to your heart is what will manifest itself in ypur life. So think of what’s good and speak on what is good so that you will always feel what is good and see what is good. ” – LadyDee3410
Good morning ♡
Accepting yourself is one of the first things you need to do when beginning your journey to peace. Embrace your accomplishments. Give yourself credit where it’s due and celebrate them! As much as they have been the stepping stones to your goals, so are your flaws and imperfections and embrace those too. Examine what went wrong and learn what to do next time. This will help you balance your true identity and see that you are human, and as humans, we fall. But we can always rise again. Love yourself & be yourself. Peace & Love ♡ ☆
Make a list of 10 things you did well and give thanks for each. Make another list of 10 things that didn’t go so well and give thanks for each. Make Peace with yourself and think about how far you have come and envision yourself going even farther. You can add to this list as the day goes on and in the days to follow. Keep it with you and review when you feel down and can’t seem to see the beautiful human being you are. You can do this!
