I’m starting to feel peaceful in my heart because I’m exactly where I am – I can’t control it. I can’t change the timeline that got me here. I can’t go back and make different choices, but I can use my experiential knowledge to make different more self-aware decisions.
How else would we learn life lessons unless we’re at the exact place we are now? Good or bad. We can’t grow through others life stories. We can only grow through the depth of our own hard times.
Inner peace is coming to terms with who we are, where we are, and enjoying the people that we have around us. The outer world is ever changing, the people around us challenge us with conflicting principles, and we can’t control that. What we can control is how gracefully and respectfully we handle our own lives.
