(Self) Peace

The month is halfway over and it is time to panic about how much we haven’t gotten done this year, right? Or, at least, how much we haven’t managed to get done in time for the holidays, or the end of the year reports, or that project that we swore we would get done this last month, right? Or should we perhaps instead be focusing on peace within our own lives? Since it is a stressful time of year for so many (in addition to being a merry time for so many), today I share with you this quote from Emerson.

"Nothing can bring you peace but yourself." Ralph Waldo Emerson

“Nothing can bring you peace but yourself.” Ralph Waldo Emerson

It is good to remember that we are the only ones who can bring peace to ourselves. And, if we have peace within ourselves, we can often bring this peace to bear in our interactions with others and hopefully create a bit of calm in the world of hurry, stress, worry, and anxiety. That is good to remember this time of year, and really any time of year.

So my wish for you is that you can find some peace within yourself and remember that you are enough no matter what you’ve accomplished or not this year and always. And, if you can, use your gifts and talents and time to bring a little peace into the lives of those whose paths you cross. The world will be a better, brighter place for it.
