When growing up, my parents taught me that if I never wasted, I would never be in the want. Last month, I celebrated Easter at my house, and I bought a bag of my favorite jelly beans. Well… in this bag of jelly beans, there is a flavor called green apple. This is the one flavor that I do not like at all. Keeping in mind what my parents taught me, I would always eat the green apple ones, even though I would choke on the taste. I’ve got to tell you… this time, I couldn’t bring myself to eat them. I finally made an adult decision to just throw them away and never eat them again! It is liberating to know, I will no longer be eating green apple jelly beans! My life is so much better now lol!
With the many decisions and challenges we face every day, how do we achieve inner peace? Inner peace starts with self-acceptance. When you feel good about yourself and be yourself, you will have peace within. Have faith and confidence that things will work out and stay calm during a storm. The less you react to negative situations, the more peaceful your life will be. Take time for yourself. Simplify your life. Meditation is the best practice for peace, relaxation, and connection to the source of all life.
