Can you live from a place of peace and joy?

Can you live from a place of inner peace and joy?  You may think I am losing my mind! Trust me, I’m not!  What I want to do is remind you that it is time again to be your best life coach and live a more peaceful life. To live in peace means you have to move out of a state of stress, frustration and anxiety.  That means you have to shut off the depressing news and refuse to listen to the gossip that is all around you. What we take into our eyes and ears eventually is taken into our mind, body and spirit.  Our continual chatter on social media, on the TV or on the phone eventually steals our sense of peace and causes us to live in anxiety, worry and stress.  In truth some people are peace stealers!  You may love to have them around but those types of personalities are more toxic than you can handle.  As a relationship expert and a life coach, I am here to tell you that sometimes we need to put up boundaries so we don’t destroy our positive state of mind.  Your number one priority is to keep you healthy, that is, physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually.  To accomplish a healthy state requires you to make some changes in your attitude, behavior and the environment in which you place yourself. 

Refuse to be a garbage dump for all the extra drama of others.  If you take on everyone else’s burdens all the time, you will not have the emotional energy to take care of yourself so you are better able to live in a place of inner peace and joy.

Life is too short worrying continually about the poor relationships and life issues of others.  Yes, once again, I encourage you to become your own relationship expert. Evaluate your relationship first with yourself.  If you don’t take care of your emotional state, you will eventually end up sick and depressed.  It is one thing to help others as you spend all your time trying to keep others happy. It is not your destiny to continually help others; your true destiny is to make sure you take care of yourself first.  Don’t live a life being out of balance!  As a true relationship expert, you need to surround yourself with those who inspire you, who are emotionally stable and who are likely to help you uplift your energy as your improve your quality of life. 

Life happens!  Even though people and circumstances will get to you and disrupt your peace of mind, it is your responsibility to refuse to allow those individuals or situations to take you out or alter your positive and healthy state of mind.  Don’t let others be a peace stealer for you.  If you are trying to keep everyone around you happy, you will not be able to enjoy your own happiness.

Maybe it is time for you to stay alert, live in conscious awareness and keep your focus on living a peaceful lifestyle where laughter and joy reside?  Coach your self daily on maintaining inner peace and joy for your life and with time you will have cultivated a good and healthy habit that will enable you to life in a healthy frame of mind on a continually basis.
