Do you want a life of peace and tranquility?  Most of us do, but sometimes we have a hard time figuring out how to create that peacefulness.

What helps you feel calm and at peace?  Creating an island of emotional safety around us is important.  We need a haven to retreat to for rest and rejuvenation when the world feels too chaotic and overwhelming.

Are there people in your life, who by their very presence help create this haven for you?  If so, you are blessed.  They enrich your world!

If there are people close to you who feel prickly and unsafe, ask yourself why you are choosing to keep them there.  You have no power to change them.  You can not make others be more kind, gentle, or supportive.  If there’s a pattern of cruelty and unkindness in someone, it won’t change unless that person wants it to change.

Who do you want around you?  You have the power to choose!  If they’re too often hurtful, you can choose to let them go.

Until next time,

Linda

  • Thank you, Lynn. Letting go can be difficult, but it makes room in our lives for people who really can be enriching. It’s the same with jobs, activities, etc. that are no longer serving us. We need to allow ourselves to move forward.

    Thank you so much for your kind words,

    Linda
