A lot of people talk about peace of mind and inner peace, but you can clearly see them in a war with themselves and everyone around them.
From my own experience I’ll share with you some of the things that had led me here to where I am today mentally and emotionally stable.
♦I love without expecting anything in return…
I try hard not to wait for anything, I give with all my heart to make the people around me happy without me considering what they’ll do for me to be happy… Because I believe it’s my job to make ‘me’ happy. And if I get anything in return that’s just a plus.
♦I don’t mind what happens.
Good or bad. I am in total belief that life is all about the ups and downs and I wouldn’t be this person I am today without those down moments. I became a much stronger person than I was back then.
♦I stopped pressuring myself.
If there is something that I can do then I’ll do it, if not then I won’t… Simple?
♦I have learnt to say no… This was life changing
I used to say yes to everything because I thought I needed to help all and be at serve. Yes, I do want that but how can you pour from an empty cup??.. Sometime’s it is ok to say no to things that you don’t want to do, or stay in when you’re supposed to go out…
♦I don’t get in other people’s personal space.
I can’t emphasis on how amazing it feels when you’re not nosy. I never found myself concerned with what other people are doing. I think this itself takes so much time and energy from my life..
((Nosy people are a little too concerned with what other people are up to, and they tend to invade the privacy of others.))
Dr Seuss was right “Those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind”
♦Taking time off
I usually do that on the weekends, usually in the mornings, I just get up and reflect on myself and what I’ve done during the weekdays. So I could work better and do better the coming week.
♦What makes life easy for me is that I don’t force things anymore.
If things aren’t happening I am letting them be… Because I believe what’s mine will never pass me.
I only spend time with people who I truly care about. I never waste a minute with those I have to fake smile or conversation with. There are people that aren’t aligning with my vibes, values, or lifestyle; So, I simply don’t gather with them…. Less drama I promise.
I don’t do forced relationships or gatherings. You won’t see me in places where I dislike or feel uncomfortable just being in..
If I don’t like you, you’ll know. A form of self-respect is to not tolerate those who make you feel uncomfortable to be around you.
I am a strong believer in the power of words. I infuse daily affirmations and words that inspire and motivate me to be a better person. We are always “being”/”becoming”. As long as we’re breathing we are learning.. There is no stop in that.
This is why I work hard to be better than who I was yesterday rather than finding competition with others.
May you have the strength to let go of the things that aren’t serving you any good.
May you have the power to detach from all things that are causing you pain.
May you find it easy to cut off those who are harming you mentally and emotionally.
May you realize that you are important and you are a priority; Stop allowing anyone to treat you less than that.
May you find the peace of mind you deserve.
