“Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass,
it’s about learning to dance in the rain.”
In these pressing times and circumstances, we have to come out Stronger, with greater understanding and Respect for Life, by maintaining Peace within ourselves.
Some vital lessons to maintain peace of mind in tough times:
- Learn to trust yourself.
“It isn’t as bad as you sometimes think it is. As you heal and grow, it will all work out. Relax and trust yourself.”
- Focus on what you’re learning.
Your journey isn’t supposed to be easy, it’s supposed to be worth it.
- Ease your expectations.
You must see and accept things as they are instead of as you hoped, wished, or expected them to be. Just because it didn’t turn out like you had envisioned, doesn’t mean it isn’t exactly what you need to get to where you ultimately want to go.
- Open up to someone you trust.
You aren’t alone; let someone special in when you’re in a dark place. You know who this person is. Don’t expect them to solve your problems; just allow them to face your problems with you. Give them permission to stand beside you.
- Use hope to drive positive action.
It’s all about balance – accepting reality without giving up on what needs to be done to reach your desired destination in the long run.
- Move towards something instead of away
Instead of concentrating on eliminating the negative, concentrate on creating something positive.
- Take a few steps back.
Don’t allow your current troubles to cloud your thinking. Take a few steps back and give yourself the benefit of this distance, and then give yourself some great advice.
- Give yourself time.
Take all the time you need. Emotional healing is a process; don’t rush yourself through it. Don’t let others force you through it either. Moving on doesn’t take a day; it takes lots of little steps to be able to break free of your broken past and your wounded self.
- Look for the beginning in every ending.
A wise man once said, “Every new beginning comes from some other beginning’s end.” Today is a new beginning; treat it that way. Stop thinking about what might have been and starting looking at what can be.
The Walls are yours…
That gives you peace of mind when times are tough and stressful.
