Finding Peace

Let's face it, sometimes life is hard.  Life doesn't always go the way we plan it.  For most people, life is pretty chaotic and unfortunately - pretty stressful.  We lose the joy in life and lack the ability to find comfort in little things.  We are always looking for the next solution that will make our situation better.  We lack peace.  If we are constantly running, working and talking we miss out on the small things in life.  We have to make time to be quiet and listen.  Listen to that little voice inside your head.  Feel that small little nudge guiding you to change directions or stay the course. Today, find time to be still.....just for a few minutes. Do something small for yourself.  Sit and feel the sun on your face.  Get a cup of coffee or tea and sit and enjoy it. Buy yourself some flowers and marvel at their beauty.  Take a bath and relax.  Everything will still be right where you left it when you are done.  Give yourself ten minutes of uninterrupted silence.

I believe that spiritual blessings come wrapped in difficult situations.  Be still and let the blessings come your way.

Have a great weekend.
