Having Peace of Mind

The older I get, the more I appreciate how all of our experiences, both positive and negative, have helped shape and frame the individuals that we are to become. I say “are” because no matter how old we get, we are still evolving, whether you acknowledge it or not. I have called upon and embraced the lessons learned from the various experiences in my life thus far and they continue to help me understand what it means to have peace of mind. For me it’s understanding and acknowledging that your reality is “this moment” right here, right now. So be present, find hidden opportunities, make each and every moment count, and keep these 3 elements in mind:

  1. Always Challenge Yourself~Challenge

Challenge yourself to be who you know you are capable of being; challenge yourself to follow through; to live what you preach- to walk your talk. You can’t worry about how slowly you feel it’s taking to reach your goals or focus too long on the obstacles you find or even the many detours you might have been forced to take along the way. Just keep doing your thing, stay on your journey because it will eventually pay off in the end.

2. Never Stop Evolving~not-your-parents-pattern-library-a-fresh-approach-in-defining-corporate-design-standards-81-638

Never stop evolving and opening your mind to new and different perspectives. Just because we’re getting “older” doesn’t mean that we should allow our mindset to become stagnant or imprisoned by old ways of thinking, especially if we know they’re not working for our benefit anymore. It’s never too late to reinvent yourself.

3. Never Lose Your Sense of Humor~8fa3f894a3bd9d52193e090500393a94

Never lose your sense of humor, because there are times when you just gotta be able to laugh at yourself and life too for that matter, as often as you can. Especially during those times when all you can do is sit back and shake your head. It makes it a lot easier to get through the day when you add humor to the mix.
