“Peace is the result of retraining your mind to process life as it is, rather than as you think it should be.”
-Wayne W. Dyer-
In the midst of having so many goals in mind. You know fulfilling the dreams and conquering the goals that I set for myself years ago. Thinking on that can at times cause me to beat myself up because when I think about them, I only tend to think of the negative. Like how I haven’t reached a goal that I feel I should’ve met years ago, or like how I am nowhere near where I dreamt I would be. This being my focus has caused so much disappointment in my life and made me feel like a failure at times.
But, since this quarantine has began I have more time to focus on what is and enjoying my now as it is. This doesn’t mean that I am settling at all. But, instead of allowing my process to put me in a place of disappointment I’ve learned to use my current life/situation/placement as motivation for my future. I have finally reached a place of peace in my life and I am becoming so pleased with the life that I have right now. Prior to this pandemic, I can say for myself, that I was so unappreciative of what may normal was. The freedom that I am offered as a human in my own right.
Now, that it seems to have all been taken from me, I am truly more grateful and at peace with the small freedoms that I am offered. Considering that I’ve found this new peace I am truly happy with my current standing in life. I am also a lot more grateful for what blessings I have in this life. God has truly blessed me with an amazing family and support system. I am so thankful that God has given this time to appreciate the work that he’s done in my life and find thanks in the things that he has planned for me in the future. Don’t get me wrong though, a playa is ready to get the hell out of this house. But, this time has taught me to appreciate the lives and things surrounding me. Take the time to dwell on the beautiful things, your beautiful life and thank God that you are in amazing place right now and especially thank him for good health!
To find peace and serenity in a life that seems so common is something learned and not always given.
