My First “Tuesday Trickles” Challenge – Inner Peace

I just found a wonderful blog,  https://acookingpotandtwistedtales.com/join-the-challenge/ that presents a “Tuesday Trickles” Challenge.  Every Tuesday, Jacqueline Oby-Ikochacan opens her blog up to other writers to “share your very short snippets of positive, inspiring, motivating, health, spiritual, writing advice, clips, posts etc.”  I love this idea!

Today is my first “Tuesday Trickles” Challenge.

I woke up this morning reading an article from Deepak Chopra entitled “4 Ways to Create and Maintain Inner Peace.”  All of the 4 lessons deeply spoke to me, but the last lesson particularly inspired me today.  Deepak teaches that we should expand our experience of peace every day.  We need to stop wasting valuable energy on anger, resentment, insecurity and “baggage” created by our own ego.  Instead, use that energy for love, inner growth, creativity, and so forth.

While these words and ideas may not be my own, I am going to apply them today and hopefully going forward, every day.

I will go out into the world and fully embrace my inner self, my inner peace.  I truly do NOT have the energy for anger or negativity.  My inner peace will shine and by sending out that positive energy, it will be felt by others.  Not only will I benefit from this, but others will as well.

Thank you, Jacqueline, for this Challenge.  I hope to participate in many more.

Daily Promt – “Keep Your Heart As Open As The Sky”

How difficult, sometimes terrifying, is it to open up your true self to another?  To put yourself out there in the most deeply raw way…

Will they truly understand you?

Will they judge you?

Will they flee or start to disconnect because they just simply cannot handle what you’ve exposed?

Or, will they accept you in all of your beauty and flaws?

Will they see that power within you and the strength that shines through?

Will they admire your unwavering loyalty?

Will they see that your sensitivity is not a weakness, but a gift?

Will they recognize how deeply you can and will love with every inch of your heart?

Will they fully embrace all that makes you “you.”?

Be your true self.  Always open your heart, your mind, your soul.  You are beautiful, so let that beauty shine through.  Those that embrace every ounce of your being will stay with you forever, whether it be physically, emotionally, spiritually… Yet, if someone cannot accept that, they weren’t meant to remain in your life.  They were simply there, for that fleeting moment in time, to remind you to always “keep your heart as open as the sky.”
