I came upon this quote the other day which was a nice reminder to me on a day that felt a bit stuffed with too much on the agenda (at my own doing!):
“Everything we do is infused with the energy with which we do it. If we’re frantic, life will be frantic. If we’re peaceful, life will be peaceful. And so our goal in any situation becomes inner peace. ” – Marianne Williamson.
We all have days that feel overwhelming; even within those days we can seek small moments of peace if that becomes part of our goal. Our hands wrapped around a warm mug, a prayer before bed, a storybook moment with our child, a cuddle with our pet, laughter at the dinner table.
Sometimes seeking a more peaceful life includes putting some of our own time boundaries into place so as to allow our day to flow at an even pace; allowing ourselves to focus on each task in a mindful way.
Seeking peace in any way is good self-care. 🙂
