We are living in such a chaotic world, finding peace can sometimes be challenging. We are always racing against time that we are losing ourselves.
I have learned that nobody can prevent me from finding my peace. Once, I realized that peace comes from within, I started to cultivate the habit to remove myself from any hostile situation. It is not easy, with time and practice, it’s attainable.
My search has finally ended. I have found peace, happiness, and myself in between. I hope your search is coming to an end soon. Here are some of my favorite quotes.
Learning to ignore things is one of the great paths to inner peace. Robert J. Sawyer
Inner peace begins the moment you choose not to allow another person or event to control your emotions. Pema Chodron
Peace is not the absence of conflict, it is the ability to handle conflict by peaceful means. Ronald Reagan
We must let go of the hurt and pain. We must learn to forgive as this is the only way that we will find peace.
Don’t let the behavior of others destroy your inner peace. Dalai Lama
For every minute we remain angry, you give up sixty seconds of peace of mind. Ralph Waldo Emerson
Most importantly, we can’t wait or hope someone will bring us peace. We have to learn to foster it. We have to learn to withdraw from the noise and negativity.
Peace comes from within. Do not seek it without. Buddha
Mother Theresa said, “peace begins with a smile”. This is so true; a smile can change someone’s day and reverse a whole situation. Let’s keep smiling, let’s remain in peace and maybe one day, this world will be finally at peace.
Envision a serene place, smile and you will reach that ecstatic state
Share your smile with the world, it’s a symbol of friendship and peace. Christie Brinkley
This is so true about most aspects of life. We cannot rely on others to provide something for us. We must love/accept ourselves and in that we shall found external love and acceptance.
I agree, Nicole!
I sometimes experience inner peace but not often enough… and you’re right, it’s not easy when life is so hectic!
So true, Kate.
It’s hard sometimes to realize things aren’t good for us and then even harder to let go. I’ve been trying to actively think about it and calm myself, but it’s not easy some days.
So true, Stephanie, now, I am at peace, and I can tell you, the chaos and pain no longer matter.
Love the simplicity in what you wrote. A simple smile can be the first step in our journey towards happiness. Thanks for sharing.
Absolutely, Andrew, thank you and I am smiling as I am answering.
It is so hard to let go of the emotionally harmful things and to find peace within yourself. I’ve been working on it as well recently and this was a perfectly timed post for me!
It is indeed hard and difficult, Patricia, but once we find that inner peace, we realize it was worth struggling for, and no one or nothing else will take that peace away from us.
Searching for inner peace can be a real journey. I often feel that I am still looking for it, and doubt I will ever find it without my son in my arms.
It’s an ongoing journey, Laura, even if you find, you have to keep nurturing and practicing it.
This could not have come at a better time! It is so important to find that inner peace yet sometimes so difficult.
Hope you can find it, April!
This is so true. Also, love all of the quotes you included.
Thank you, Haley!
It can be so difficult to remove yourself from situations but also so beneficial. I love quotes and these are some good ones!
Thank you, Christa!
My life is so chaotic right now but I really need to take time and find my inner peace. <3 Thank you for sharing.
This is a perfect time, to learn to cultivate and practice inner peace, Jennifer!
I love your post! I have a poem title Caught in the middle it’s all about finding peace and wonderful life I love your post!
I will search and read it, Maysz, thanks for sharing.
The events going on in the world right now are overwhelming and we need to find ways to check out and recharge. Each of us needs a way to find inner peace
We sure do, Debby!
Thats indeed, its tough. However, it can be achieved through hard work which requires pain and suffer at the beginning.
Ah this is so true. Inner peace is the ultimate aim, and life can be cruel at times, you just got to try and reflect, refocus and aim for the best you can x
I share your thinking, Melanie!
In my yoga classes I encourage my participants to practice being at peace because it is a learned response. In these chaotic times, we have to practice feeling peace, imagining special peace filled moments and allowing our bodies, minds and spirits to absorb peace.
Well said, Cindy, I used to take a Yoga class on Wednesday, it was the best way to end my day.
Right now my main goal in life is to always find peace in everything no matter how chaotic my surroundings can be. If it doesn’t contribute to my inner peace I should let it go and the quotes you posted above are such great reminders and it’s so inspirational
I am positive that you are on your way to reaching your main goal, Stephanie!
Cultivating a positive mindset is everything. And inner-peace is a conscious choice one must make every day. Forgiveness is so important to achieve inner peace. We must forgive others for their shortcomings and in turn, forgive ourselves for our failures and human weakness.
It took me a long time to forgive myself, once, I did that, I was set free, thanks for your feedback, Angelie.
You are completely true. We live in a world where there are so many factors that we cannot control and that may affect us in one way or another. We, of course, can’t go on changing the world around us. However, we can control ourselves and make peace with the surroundings!
Well said, Sreekar, I agree with you.
What a lovely read! Everyday, we try to achieve peace but find it elusive. We’re doing it all wrong, because peace comes from within. It is definitely in the stillness, in a quiet private place that we can feel peace.
I couldn’t agree with you more. I realized that being at war with someone is not doing me any good but peace just makes the situation different. So I decided to always be at peace.
I agree, Lateefah!
Yay it’s so great you found your peace. It can be such a hard thing to do, and so many people tie their peace in with needing a person which isn’t healthy at all.
Jackie (Organised Mum Life)
It is so true, Jackie, I have learned that some time ago.
This post has come at a perfect time, when there is so much chaos going on in my head as I suffer from severe anxiety. I am saving this post in my favourites folder so I can refer back to it for healing. Thank you so much xx
Thank you, Susana, just remember, sometimes, we have to take a step up, and let the chaos outside where it belongs.
love these amazing quotes,esp the Mother Theresa’s quote that peace starts with a smile… it’s so simple to smile too ; )
It’s always great to read uplifting posts, so thank you!
Thank you, Eloise.
By MarjieMare -, thanks for the article post.Really thank you! Great.
I’m not there yet but I think I’m on my way. I’m learning to leave hurt, regret, and past failures behind me and focus on the positive.
One day at a time, and eventually, you will reach that place, Takara!
I really like this post, it is so true but a hard thing to practice. In the short term and feels easier to live the part of the victim, but in the end it is so much harder and so destructive. Living from a place of self empowerment and personal responsibility is so much better. Love your graphics too!
Thank you so much, I appreciate your feedback!
Love this quote . Peace is not the absence of conflict, it is the ability to handle conflict by peaceful means. Ronald Reagan
I think it so hard to remain calm while being present and showing your emotions.
wow. an interesting read. so well written that nobody can prevent from finding peace. thanks for sharing.
I agree, Teena, we can find that internal peace, and no one can prevent us from finding it.
