We all want peace. We search for those moments of peace that has the ability to quiet our thoughts, calm our hearts & ease our minds…
But sometimes we really don’t know what to do with it. We start overthinking and creating problems that aren’t there. We find reasons to work ourselves up and we start feeling uneasy… Why must we do these things to ourselves? Why can’t we just relax and enjoy the peace in that moment?
I’m guilty of overthinking. I’m guilty of getting more nervous and side eyeing everything when I feel this random wave of peace. I find reasons to be unsure or curious. I find reasons to be on the defensive. Instead of just accepting the way I feel.
Peace is good.
Peace. Be Still
Today, I woke up with peace in my spirit. I lived in that peace all day. And chose to relish in that peace instead of creating nonexistent problems. I chose, instead, to be still. I’ve been praying for peaceful moments, and I decided to take full advantage of what I felt today. I’m deserving, I don’t have to stress all of the time. I don’t have to be angry or defensive. I’m allowed to just be still. I’m allowed to be filled with peace.
I’ve been praying on it, praying for it and reading more. Trying to find the peace for my own mind. I’ve filled long nights and early mornings, with devotionals & prayers… Today? It finally rubbed off.
Choosing to be filled with peace. Meant having to put my phone down. Limiting conversations, and pretty much not answering my phone. Whenever I felt my mind beginning to wander, I filled it with thoughts of purpose, positivity & light. I kept myself as peaceful & relaxed as possible.
Even at this very moment, I still feel the same peace I woke up with. I genuinely feel like I accomplished something huge.. For myself. I found a way to keep my peace. All day. By myself. For myself. At the end of the day, I’m deserving. Beyond deserving, of every positive force that enters my life. We all are. We just have to believe it. We have to aim for it.. And when we get it, we have to hold on to it, and cherish it. It’s something special.
Wishing you Peace, love & light.
