Where Peace Begins


I heard a phrase last week that I couldn't wait to share with you. It's been a beautiful reminder that I can tap into peace and ease regardless of what's going on around me.⁣

Peace begins with me ✨⁣

𝐇𝐚𝐧𝐠 𝐨𝐧 𝐭𝐨 𝐭𝐡𝐢𝐬 𝐰𝐡𝐞𝐧 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐞𝐯𝐞𝐫𝐲𝐝𝐚𝐲 𝐬𝐭𝐮𝐟𝐟 𝐩𝐮𝐥𝐥𝐬 𝐚𝐭 𝐲𝐨𝐮𝐫 𝐢𝐧𝐧𝐞𝐫 𝐡𝐚𝐫𝐦𝐨𝐧𝐲:⁣

** Your alarm clock didn't go off - ie you didn't want to get up ;)⁣

** The kids are screaming and fighting.... again⁣

** Your boss is in a bad mood⁣

** You spilled something on your shirt before a big meeting⁣

** You forgot your password and can't access that info you need⁣

** Your phone battery went dead and you don't have a charger⁣

** There is endless traffic and you're already running behind⁣

** You're closing your yoga studio after 7+ years of running it with the most amazing group of people...⁣

𝐏𝐞𝐚𝐜𝐞 𝐛𝐞𝐠𝐢𝐧𝐬 𝐰𝐢𝐭𝐡 𝐦𝐞 ✨⁣

** I can't control the people in my life - what they do, say, think or believe⁣

** I can't control the events that happen around me⁣

** I can't do anything about the past⁣

** I don't know exactly what the future holds⁣

And yet... peace begins with me ✨⁣

𝐈 𝐠𝐞𝐭 𝐭𝐨 𝐛𝐫𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐩𝐞𝐚𝐜𝐞 𝐢𝐧𝐭𝐨 𝐞𝐯𝐞𝐫𝐲 𝐬𝐢𝐧𝐠𝐥𝐞 𝐝𝐚𝐲, 𝐧𝐨 𝐦𝐚𝐭𝐭𝐞𝐫 𝐰𝐡𝐚𝐭'𝐬 𝐡𝐚𝐩𝐩𝐞𝐧𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐚𝐫𝐨𝐮𝐧𝐝 𝐦𝐞. 𝐒𝐨𝐦𝐞 (𝐝𝐚𝐢𝐥𝐲!) 𝐩𝐫𝐚𝐜𝐭𝐢𝐜𝐞𝐬 𝐛𝐞𝐥𝐨𝐰 𝐭𝐨 𝐟𝐨𝐬𝐭𝐞𝐫 𝐞𝐚𝐬𝐞 𝐚𝐧𝐝 𝐜𝐚𝐥𝐦 𝐢𝐧 𝐲𝐨𝐮𝐫 𝐥𝐢𝐟𝐞.⁣

** Moving your body regularly so you can feel good in your skin⁣

** Trusting yourself to make the right decisions around food and nutrition⁣

** Journaling⁣

** Being outdoors⁣

** Music, art ⁣

** Meditation⁣

** An inspirational podcast⁣

** Breathing practices⁣

** Reading⁣

** Quiet time alone⁣

** A long drive⁣

If you don't know what it is that connects you back to the inner peace that is already there (sometimes it's just hiding behind fear, insecurity, and comparison...), try something new.⁣

Try it today. Do not wait.⁣

When you feel safe and secure on the inside, the external events don’t have as much pull.⁣

We work on these practices when we might not necessarily need them (like in a yoga class, relaxing in bed, sitting in meditation etc…), so that they are available and familiar when we do.⁣

And we can fall easily into their comfort.⁣

You don’t need to have a specific background, previous training, the 'right' clothes, or even any equipment.⁣

You can do it in your own way.⁣

Any time, any place.⁣

Work now to build inner trust so you can better handle the inevitable stress that life have in store.⁣

✔️✔️ 𝐓𝐰𝐨 𝐫𝐞𝐥𝐚𝐭𝐞𝐝 𝐈𝐧𝐬𝐢𝐠𝐡𝐭 (𝐛𝐥𝐨𝐠) 𝐏𝐨𝐬𝐭𝐬 𝐟𝐨𝐫 𝐟𝐮𝐫𝐭𝐡𝐞𝐫 𝐫𝐞𝐚𝐝𝐢𝐧𝐠:⁣

Have a beautiful, peace-filled week!⁣
