I can truly say that I live my life with such a sense of peace today that is beyond understanding. Being a product of an abusive home, growing up in the child protective system, losing my first born child to SIDS and all that life has thrown my way I can say that I didn't have any peace. I came to a point in my life where all I wanted was all the pain to stop but I didn't know how to get to that point. I always knew that God had his hand on me and I would pray and pray for understanding and guidance. When I got to the point where I was sick and tired of being sick and tired I began to ask God for peace and understanding. I didn't receive that peace overnight and I still continue to ask for it. In the beginning of the journey to a peaceful place I had to deal with a lot of hurts, pain, forgiveness, letting go of things, healing, self-reflection, growing and maturing. As you release and let go you allow are able to receive the good. When you begin receiving good things such as love, understanding and peace you feel better about yourself and the choices and decision you begin to make. When you have peace in your life the way you react and respond when life situations occur become different. Peace allows you to talk and treat others in a loving manner no matter what they say or do. Once you get to a place where you live in a peaceful manner you work extremely hard to stay in that place because it is such a wonderful place that you don't want it disturbed. I know for telling people I'm not going to let you disrupt my peace. I do get upset, my feelings do get hurt and I do get mad but I don't stay there I quickly do all that I can to return to my place of peace. One of my favorite lines to say is "I don't and won't receive that", another words I'm not allowing whatever is going on or being said to inter into my spirit. I have come to far to go backwards and allow that to happen. I like where I am and I am enjoying the life and journey I am on and I refuse to take a detour. I don't have no more time to give in a place of unhappiness and lack. I have always said in want more and better out of my life and now that I'm on the road to that I am not going back! Maintaining my peace keeps me focused on my life's purpose and allows me to be in the moment on life's journey and not just exist. I believe in being an example for those around me no matter how young or old they may be or what they may be going through. I want all to know and understand that having peace in their lives will help them deal with everything that comes there way. Be blessed and begin to get to your place of peace trust me once you start operating in that place you will not go back.
Many Blessing & Much Love
