Peace of Mind:
Where are you?
How do I find you?
When can I feel you?
Can I create you?
I’ve been “in my head” a lot lately. Thinking about all of my responsibilities. Things that I am concerned about. I’ve learned how to remain calm and stay positive. I have learned how to “nurture the now.” When my thoughts drift to thinking about how I will pay my taxes and what will happen when my firstborn goes off to college, I calm myself by recalling that worrying and over-thinking does nothing but create stress.
“Meditation brings me peace and helps me feel connected to the rest of the world.” ~Amy Grams, Nutrition Educator/Coach @AmyGrams
Knowing that stress causes ailments to manifest and weaken me, I recall the goodness that surrounds me and I regain my strength. It is almost instant. My head lifts. I feel light. When I walk, I walk tall. When I speak, I speak with love.

When I think about the future, I do all I can to replace the worrisome thoughts that creep into my mind with thoughts of hope. I begin to dream about the wonderful possibilities. The beautiful memories of my youth and my life with my parents come to mind. I know I will build those memories with my own children. I imagine what it will be like to have grandchildren, to travel with my husband and to retire and have time to enjoy things like gardening and shopping. A huge smile is on my face!

When I dream hopeful thoughts, I think about the now. What am I feeling now. I am happy. I am feeling good. I love my family. I have friends. I have the capability of handling anything that comes my way. I have managed just fine so far. I am in my peaceful zone.
What are you worrying about ?
How can you create peace of mind for yourself right now?
