I love when you’re going through something and the universe sends you a message. Some people may say it’s God, whatever you believe in is fine. Just as long as it helps get you through. For me, it’s the universe. I believe the universe holds great power and energy. It works with us in magical ways. It’s unclear exactly how, but I know from experience my life has had plenty of unsure moments. During those moments, messages in the form of people, incidents and even quotes have helped me. Today I was running through my twitter feed and I read…“Only you can find inner peace.”
Pretty ironic for me because I’ve had quite the weekend. Not with anyone, just myself. Ever get to a point in your life where you question EVERYTHING and EVERYONE? If so, then you know my mind was running a thousand miles a minute. You play back past situations. You tell yourself if things were this way or that way…it would be better. If this or that…<<< that constantly plays in your mind. You even tell yourself that’s non sense as you’re dissecting the problem, person or situation. We try to think of solutions. What can work? What can’t? What has the past shown? Is it always the same? Is this never-ending? Different point of views, different plans of action…but the outcome…is always the same?
See how much “question” there is? So much uncertainty.
My weekend was spent like this. Replays. Questions. Today, a couple of days later the universe finally answers me, in the form of a tweet LOL.
“Only you can find inner peace.” Life Tools <<< I was like…well shit, I knew this. I spend my time fighting with myself, knowing how toxic it is. Causing pain and frustration. I was trying to find peace, happiness. Looking towards others to help me feel the way I should feel on my own.
It’s natural to want, we humans need emotional connection. We want to feel love, pleasure, happiness, appreciation, acceptance, the list goes on. It makes us feel good. When these feelings aren’t met, we immediately feel angry, sad.
Do we have the right to feel this way? It depends on the situation. We can’t control how people behave. We can’t always have what we want, unfortunately 😦 What are we to do with this dilemma? The only thing I came up with is learn how to accept things as they are. I didn’t say settle, I said accept. You have 2 choices, find a solution or move on. You control the outcome of your emotions. How you go about it will either result in sorrow or relief. But at least you get to decide 🙂
Do you have inner peace? Are you happy with yourself? Do you feel whole? Complete? Reflect on your behavior when you’re mad or upset, you’ll probably find the answer. Especially in how you deal with it.
Ask yourself, as I ask myself…
Blame a lot? Well why are you letting someone control how you feel? You don’t have to deal with it. Make a choice. You see, when you have inner peace, no one controls how you feel. You’re at peace with yourself and with what life is. When you look ahead, you see life as a journey to be conquered, with endless possibilities. No one person, one thing, one moment will deter you from your path. You ALONE appreciates life, another day, everyday. When you feel this way, you have inner peace. To let go and just be is such a peaceful way to live life isn’t it?
Thank you to the universe. Sometimes it’s hard for me to see clearly. Reality is lost when my emotions are out of sync with common sense. I won’t feel bad 🙂 You feel like this sometimes too right? (hopefully you said yes :p )
I know with whatever happens in life, we are meant to be where we are. Everything happens for a reason. We are forever growing. Remember, it’s a journey. Inner peace is progression, it has to be practiced. What goes up must come down, problems are inevitable. We just have to find a balance and remember that moments are only moments. What you feel inside is the key to living the most wonderful life.
