Once you’ve found peace, you never want to let it go
Recently with all that has been going on in my life, I’ve felt like my peace was slipping away and this scared me.
Because it has taken me so long time to get to this space that I am in now, this was a lot of hard work and I knew what it felt like before, to stress and worry all the time.
See for years I didn’t like myself, I hated my life and I was unhappy. I made the change, I made the conscious effort to change my life.
I learned to take time out for me, to let go of the stuff I couldn’t change and to find inner peace and joy.
Let me tell you when you get to a place where you find it, where you truly know inner peace and then something happens where your peace is disturbed, you feel it right away.
There is an uneasiness that fills you, you start to worry about things, you feel off balanced and unsettled, just like how I use to feel in the past.
I don’t ever want to go back to the days of darkness, where I couldn’t see the sun, where I couldn’t find things to smile about and where I hated my life and myself, no there will not be a return visit for me.
Now each and every day I wake up, I chose to be happy, I chose to be grateful, I chose to see the world through rose colored glasses. It is a choice, my choice and I chose to have this peace in my life.
I have girlfriends that have drama in their lives every day and then they want to drag me into their drama. I love you but unless you choose to change then you must like the situation you are in and I chose not to be dragged in.
How many times do you need to go through the same stuff expecting different results?
Its called insanity!
I chose not to hang out with negative people, as they suck all the life out of you, they want to bring you down with them.
I want to surround myself with people who are positive, happy and love life, even with all the ups and downs, they chose to be happy!
Life is a choice, there are choices every day, you chose not to do drugs, to steal, to hurt people, to cheat, to be miserable. These are choices you make every day, we live in the greatest country in the world, a country that allows you to chose, how great is that?
So because it took me so very long to get to a place of peacefulness, I know that every dark night, every tear, every cry to God for help was worth it. As I have found a place in my life that is so incredible that even as a writer, I have no words to describe this feeling!
So when I was getting sucked into the drama that was my life for these last few weeks, I realized just how much I need my peace.
I felt I was swimming up stream against the current, fighting just to catch my breathe and who wants to live like that?
Are you living like that? Is each day a struggle? Are you surrounded with negative people? Are you caught up in drama filled life?
You need to chose, you step out and step up to a better life. This is your life people and you only get one trip, why spend it worried, anxious, hateful and miserable.
Isn’t better to feel peace and joy, gratefulness, forgiveness and be with one with God and the universe?
So today my friends remember it is a new day, you were blessed to be woken up, make the decision to erase the past, to start over, to decide bring peace into your life, wake up and chose!!
