Protecting your peace is a personal journey that we all are trying to find. It is about safeguarding our physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual self. We are discovering ways to protect our peace.

Protect your peace

Do you ever notice that your attitude changes when your peace is disrupted? This happened to me yesterday. I allowed what I saw on social media to disrupt my peace.  When someone does something that you think is disrespectful, you don’t know how to shake it.  You begin to rationalize in your head. You say to yourself “How should I react”, “Should I let it go”, and “Should I say something”. What do you do in this situation?

Well, Well, Well…. I decided to say something about it rationally.  I couldn’t let my emotions take over this time. I simply had to pause before reacting.  I put my personal growth development into practice. I decided to share how I felt in the situation. But guess what…. I felt heard by the other person. The situation was resolved this time; however, it was a lesson that I have learned.

The lesson is that protecting my peace is only defined by me. It is safeguarding your physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual self.

It is a personal journey for yourself that people will not understand. But it is not for them to understand. It is about you setting boundaries and decisions for yourself.

Here are some steps to help you along the way to protecting your peace

  1. Develop an attitude of gratitude
  2. Let go of what you can't control
  3. Avoid spaces that don't feel right (that part)
  4. Avoid comparing yourself to others
  5. Accept what you cannot change
  6. Set Boundaries
  7. Focus on internal peace
  8. Say no
  9. Don’t be afraid to walk away
  10. Speak up for yourself
  11. Listen to your inner voice
  12. Declutter your mind and your physical space

Remember this:

Don't let the behavior of others destroy your inner peace ~Dalai Lama

I recently reminded myself about #2 and I cannot begin to tell you the peace that has returned regarding my work atmosphere. Self induced stress is the worse but then isn’t all stress brought on by how we deal with things. Once we have those boundaries in place and remember our faith life is so much brighter.
