Finding Peace


As unrest grows across our country, and the reality of our new normal continues to set in, it’s easy to feel uncertain. But, there is hope in the midst of chaos and that is, finding peace within. While it will not change the current circumstances, what it will change is our perspective. As Dr. Wayne Dyer so eloquently explained, “Peace is the result of retraining your mind to process life as it is, rather than as you think it should be.” Meaning, peace begins when you are unaffected by outside circumstances.

It’s strange to publish something about happiness, especially as the world faces the biggest health challenge in years. But perhaps now more than ever, happiness has a place in the world in mitigating the fear and anxiety we are all feeling. With our days filled with a new normal rotation of habits and emotions, it’s only natural to be frightened.


Staying Positive


Staying positive when the news is all doom and gloom can be a hard, even for the most optimistic people. While it is true we need to take the Coronavirus Pandemic seriously, it does not mean we have to let it break us. Yes, it is impacting our economy and causing illness worldwide. And, yes, we see, hear and read about these topics literally all day. But in times of constant negative messaging, you need an antidote.
