You Want Peace? Take a Look in the Mirror Dear….


That’s all it takes to change the world. Take a long hard look in the mirror and really notice who you are.

We’re all screaming for peace right now – not just world peace – but peace in our cities, in our workplaces, in our homes and in our minds. There has to be a better way to end this madness.

We need a new way of doing things. Yet we seem to be stuck in outdated modes of thought that have not been working. For if they did, we wouldn’t be in the predicaments we are in now. The past will keep repeating itself until we make a conscious choice to go in a new direction.

Going in a new direction begins inside of you, of me, and of us as individuals. Until we change as individuals, only then can the world change. ๐Ÿ™‚

One of my favorite quotes is from Mahatma Gandhi – ‘You must be the change you want to see in the world.’ So to have world peace we have to look in the mirror. Take a look and try to find the peace you’re searching for in your heart. ๐Ÿ’“

If you can’t find it ask yourself why. It’s not missing – it’s been there with you all along waiting for you to begin your search within. Peace isn’t hard to find at all. You just have to dig from underneath all of the rubble – fear and anger. Once you push the fear and anger to the side peace will be in plain view.

When you find the peace in your heart you start to exude it. It becomes infectious. Joy soon follows and a sense of calm is not too far behind. All of this from one good look in the mirror. One hard look at who you really are. That’s all it takes to get the ball rolling.

And it’s easy to pass it on. Remind your loved ones to find their peace within. They’ll know it can be done because they would have seen the transformation in you. Be a walking example of peace and watch how it spreads.

When others come to you full of fear and anger remember the peace within yourself and gently remind them that no matter how bad it gets it will eventually work itself out for the best.

We get what we dwell upon so if we keep our thoughts based on fear and anger that’s what we’ll continue to get. Instead let’s focus on peace – peace within ourselves and let these thoughts multiply. Remember, be the change you want to see – so be peaceful within your heart and watch your world begin to mirror that.

Have an amazing Friday Loves,

Why is Self Awareness Important?

Why Does Self-Awareness Matter?

Self-awareness is the key cornerstone to emotional intelligence, according to Daniel Goleman. The ability to monitor our emotions and thoughts from moment to moment is key to understanding ourselves better, being at peace with who we are and proactively managing our thoughts, emotions, and behaviours.

In addition, self-aware people tend to act consciously rather than react passively, to be in good psychological health and to have a positive outlook on life. They also have greater depth of life experience and are more likely to be compassionate to themselves and others.

Emotional Dependency?

#selfawareness

๐Ÿ”…Emotional dependency means getting oneโ€™s good feelings from outside oneself. It means needing to get filled from outside rather than from within. Who or what do you believe is responsible for your emotional wellbeing?

๐Ÿ”…This week I will focus on why it’s important to be aware of your emotions in your workplace, life, relationships, and your business!

๐Ÿ”…There are numerous forms of emotional dependency:

* Dependence on substances, such as food, drugs, or alcohol, to fill emptiness and take away pain.

* Dependency on processes such as spending, gambling, or TV, also to fill emptiness and take away pain.

* Dependence on money to define oneโ€™s worth and adequacy.

* Dependence on getting someoneโ€™s love, approval, or attention to feel worthy, adequate, lovable, and safe.

* Dependence on sex to fill emptiness and feel adequate.

๐Ÿ”…Can you relate to any of these, ๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿฝโ€โ™€๏ธI know I can, so this week I will focus more this topic!

Thursday Thoughts๐Ÿ’ญ

#thursdaythoughts

#unleashyourgreatness

๐Ÿ”… Whether you’re male or female, if you want to bring positive change to your current life or circumstances, the first line of action you need to take is to begin questioning and often change your perception of the way in which you see your own world. This means taking a shrewd and honest view of what you currently believe about yourself, the environment you live in and the role others play in shaping your life. ๐Ÿ”…

What do you believe about yourself???

Just Like That: I’m Changing

Last year around this time, I didn’t know if I was coming or going. Life sucked and I wanted no part of it. All I could do was walk around the house in pajamas cry, barely sleep, sleep too much, or just sit in the corners. I just couldn’t cope and felt no need too, life wasn’t even worth living at this time. My body felt like crap, I could barely stand from all the pain I was feeling. I just couldn’t understand why God was making me suffer like this. See those are the thoughts I had going through my head, “It’s God fault” not mines. I did nothing to contribute to the pathetic way I was feeling….said know one ever. So here we are a year later, and I feel better than I felt in years. My mind is little clearer and life doesn’t seem so bad. Yes, I still have my moments because I’m still trying to figure this new me out. My passion for self-improvement is on overload, I’m reading, listening to TedTalks, meditating, and learning to let go. ‘Radical Acceptance’ I can no longer try to change things I can’t control. So just like that, I’m working on me, for me! I’m a continuous work in progress….chat soon!
