On the first Wednesday of each month we have a post with the month’s theme. The month theme is something to think about, journal about, include in your daily intentions, and/or be mindful of all month.
This month is very busy with the rush of holiday shopping, visiting friends and relatives, the whirlwind of the holidays and the pressures to attend every event and celebration. It can be fun, frustrating, delightful and overwhelming all at once.
This month, give yourself permission to take the time and mental space to give yourself peace, in whatever way that means to you. Take a bubble bath, go for a walk outside, meditate.
As often as you can throughout the day, think to yourself, “Peace.” Bring yourself some calm in the chaos.
When you feel peaceful yourself, you are better able to spread a feeling of peace to other people. Friends and loved ones will pick up on your state of mind, and often will reflect those feelings back to you. So by centering yourself with peaceful thoughts, others around you will feel more at peace and reflect that back to you too. By practicing peace on the inside, you can surround yourself with peace on the outside.
Wishing you a very happy and peaceful holiday season!
