According to Webster Dictionary Peace is defined by: freedom from disturbance; tranquility. A state or period in which there is no war or a war has ended.
A month spent focused on peace has been a gift to myself.
A gift I didn’t know I needed.
Upon reflection and introspection I found my peace was taken from me in times I was at war with myself. I disrupt my own peace. I allow others to disrupt my peace. I am the creator of my life both internally and externally. And while some things are out of my control, my reactions and actions are not.
A few highlights of my reflection:
Do the best you can in the moment.
With what you have and what you know.
This does not mean you will react perfectly or gracefully in every moment. What it does mean is that you did your best in the moment.
You cannot be mad at yourself or unhappy about a past
moment if you did the best you could with what you had and what you knew.
This does not excuse behavior.
But it allows us to explore and learn without dwelling in the past.
Space. Give yourself space to respond, to reflect, to learn and grow.
You cannot create peace. If you do not give yourself space. Space given looks different for everyone. What you need is different from what I need.
Create an easily manageable environment that can
bring peace into your daily routine
For me that means a morning and evening routine that takes tops 15 minutes. I open up the windows, clear the dishwasher and light a candle or two in the morning. In the evening I close the blinds, start the dishwasher and make tea.
