Writing is my passion. I have an undying thirst and quest in the field of writing. Some eat, smoke, drink or use drugs when stressed, I writ

I am a typical woman with collective thoughts, and I've been blessed to live an extraordinary life. However, like many people, I haven't honestly felt that I live my life the way my soul meant.

Up until a few years ago, I have been stuck in a world of darkness; I did not feel well, most of the time as I thought there’s no way of finding myself.

The pain I felt often overcome me with sadness and made me longed not to feel. I often reflected on all the things that weighed me down.

Finally, I realize the hurt was NEVER mine to carry, to feel connected to everything made me feel responsible entirety.

Nevertheless, after years of suffering, thank God, one morning as I found myself struggling to begin the day, I took the time to start listening to the cheerful and inspiring singing of sparrows.

As I casually listen to their chirping, it echoed beautifully, and it was as if their happiness cheeping unintentionally transfers to me and I absorb their happiness.

That very day, I can say I endured a unique kind of inner peace in my life that brought me a pleasing sort of joy, and I feel incredibly fortunate to have found this exceptional tranquility.

I'm a woman who's been trying to change for a few years, to start living a good life, but hasn't been able to, but after years of struggling, finally, I went and did it.

I blossom into a stronger, more decisive person that rediscover herself and that became an incredible first step to inner peace.

I transform into a person of my likeness – an awakening well evolving, and I felt like the fiend inside of me were released to begin living my dreams.

Although it may sound a little strange, the person I was even one month ago, is an entirely different being than who I am today. Reason being there is never a time that we stop growing.

Living in this densely-populated world, there is a lot of negative energy, but if you set energetic boundaries, one can deal with the rigors of life to find inner peace.

Dealing with negativity can be quite a downer, mainly when you are absorbing other people’s negative energy.

However before I realize the people around me brought negative energy and was not the right individuals to be in my life, my days involved a tug of melancholy that torment me as I fought to ignore the veiled darkness.

To release all negativity, I had to let go of the friends and acquaintances who dump their pessimism on me.
It was not easy to learn to let go and say “no” to people who do not deserve my time.

Although when I found the strength to let go and to shift my thinking from negative to positive, that was how I found this remarkable inner peace.

Creating an Inner Peace That Endures!

“We can never obtain peace in the outer world until we make peace with ourselves.”

― Dalai Lama XIV

I discover and learn from my mistake that I was so wrong to believe my destiny is bound to the fates of others.

Nevertheless, in return that was how I learn to truly appreciate the daylight and I understood how it removes the darkness.
Although, it is our light that frightens us, not our night. The truth be told, we are all meant to find the daylight and not fear it.

Though, being terrified of the daytime isn’t being broken or concealing a dark secret. It’s when one can choose to go back to feel safe instead of forward toward growth.

In this sense, there are multiple sides to all of us. Yes, there are different sides of the various personalities that exist in all of us such as who we are – who we think we are, and who we could be if we build our goals and follow our dreams.

Everyone’s journey is compelled to be different and to find the right path that best works for you are an ongoing process.
One thing, my own experience has taught me is striving to discover the right path is constant. Granting, in any moment of decision, the best thing you can do is the right thing.

If you wait for the perfect moment when all is safe and assured it might never arrive. Despite everything, fear is not a friend. We all discover things all at different times.

Before I endured my inner peace, I lived my life for many years not knowing to have and enjoy inner peace is a choice.

For this reason, there were many ups and downs in my life which involved too many stressful situations to deal with, and because I decline to spend the time dealing with my issues, I was stuck in a world of confusion, questioning how peace could enter my life.

It seems as if I always had some form of chaos in my life or I've had friends that entailed a lot of drama. It was the kind of stuff that pulls at your emotions — In fact, it seemed as if the entire world was filled with negative things.

The nasty, ugly stuff you read about in the newspaper, watched on the news or heard about from the people you know.

Looking back on my days of emotional drama, I believe I felt that it was necessary and of the essence. Moreover, before things got better and I learn better, I struggled with moods that influence more suffering. And things didn't get better because I thought it was okay to fight my feelings, but I learn that did not “fix” the problem.

Also, there were days when I believed emotions made me feel genuine and allowed me to offer to understand everyone else. But, despite all I think it provided, I did not encounter benefit from it.

Therefore, I desired not to be so emotional. I needed to be free from all the pain — as a result, over the years, I have gradually disassociated from people who brought relentless drama into my life.

I felt a desperate need to stop the negativity it brought in my life. I felt tired and ready to rid all negativity from my life which led me to discover a more peaceful way to live, despite the many struggles in my life.

"Inner peace begins the moment you choose not to allow another person or event to control your emotions."– Pema Chodron

After I come to the realization there is a lot of negative energy and stupidity in this world; I can view the world from a 'realistic' standpoint.

Furthermore, if I conditioned myself to believe that whatever can go wrong, will and whatever can go right, apparently will I am grateful for what is and my intention comes from the deepest part of me.

I can attract more and more positive energy into my life to gain knowledge of how to live with inner peace.

Also, as soon as I started to think there is something not right and made some changes, peace comes from making changes inside me.

What is more, peace of mind is not the absence of conflict; differences will always be there. Finding peace within is a beautiful but also a challenging thing.

Beside, enduring peace begins and continues through expanding more aware of who you are, altering the way you think, and enduring life as it is.

        You are so welcome MsDora; I love sharing my life's journey of ups and downs. My primary goal is to help someone reading my posting. If it does my purpose is fulfilled. Another important thing I learn from my journey to inner peace, the path taken to find inner peace is as hard or simple as a person makes the passage of self-acceptance to be. Thank you so much for your comment, it is so appreciated.
