Finding peace within

February 11, 2009

Emotions are knee-jerk responses, just by definition. They come up quickly and without any thought at all.

Today, it’s more important than ever to be more conscious of our responses. To stop and center ourselves.

My financial statement came yesterday and I really didn’t want to open it. I was on the phone with a friend, who encouraged me to open it, but to put it in perspective. The situation is what it is, and burying my head in the sand wouldn’t change a thing. So I opened it. With perspective.

The ability to find peace within is an acquired skill and one that I need to master.

My 401K statement has been sitting in my mail slot at work for a month. I guess that’s going to be my next step. Calm in my heart. Perspective. Deep breaths. I can do it.
