Peace is the Prescription!

Today during my self-reflection time, I could not quiet the voices in my head. Don’t you just hate when that happens? My mind was racing and my peace was losing the race. I had been thinking of the things I needed to do and the list kept getting longer and longer. The thought of doing the things listed on the tablet in my head and the process by which to do them literally winded me. I couldn’t think of where I needed to start or what I needed to do first. All of this was going on inside my head and neither my husband, nor my boys knew that any of this was happening. Please, tell me you can relate?

Needless to say, the day was unproductive; but, it was not a total waste! I realized today that what I needed was quiet time. I needed time to process. I needed time to think about the tasks before me and to determine my path forward. I needed to “clear my mind”, so to speak. So, I sat still long enough to do exactly that. I sat there until the chatter in my head was quiet. Twenty three minutes in, it came me. My peace had returned and it consumed my inside voice much like pain pills consume body aches and pain.

Inhale, exhale, repeat.

Inhale, exhale, repeat.

Sometimes, I get so bothered that I forget to take a moment to just breathe…with intent. To simply take air into my lungs and enjoy the feeling of my chest expanding; is my magic pill of peace today. My body’s capability to take in exactly what I need and to release what I do not need causes me to acknowledge the power inside of me. Just as I can control my breath, I can also control what I allow to disrupt my peace. (Read that again.) There is so much power in knowing that.

So, I decided to self-medicate and peace was my prescription. I recommend taking moments like these twice a day or as often as needed. Now, get you some peace!

More later…
