Keys to Making Peace with YOURSELF


In last week’s post I pointed out that making peace with yourself is an essential step on your path to love and fulfillment.

Today’s post will provide you with three key practices that will help you to experience more peace, confidence and positive connection in your romantic and life pursuits.

In fact your physical and emotional health and all of your most important relationships will benefit greatly from the practices I will share.


Just saying the word peace out-loud has a calming impact on my consciousness.

Peace is both highly coveted and very illusive.

Three keys to a making peace with yourself: 

1.   Practice forgiveness
2.   Practice gratitude
3.   Practice being fully present with what is

Practice forgiveness

If you want peace then forgiving others is simply essential.

If you want a positive, supportive, loving relationship, then it is very important to cultivate the habit of being very slow to anger and very quick to forgive and let go.

You see love and resentment don’t make good ‘house mates’.

In this context, it is equally important to be forgiving and patient with yourself.

I invite you to gently close your eyes and become present with the people that you are closest to.

If there is any hint of anger or resentment toward any of them take this opportunity to become fully present with it and then make the conscious choice to forgive them and let it go.

Now repeat this process with yourself.

Forgive yourself for:

  • Any actions that you engaged that you believe were wrong or ineffective.
  • Any things you didn’t get done; and now regret not completing.

Celebrate your efforts.

Practice gratitude

Each day of life is a precious, never to be repeated gift.

While we all know this, it is very easy to allow our fear of not getting what we really need to creep in and rob us of our natural state of gratitude and peace.

I invite you to start each day with a conscious acknowledgment of just how grateful you are for the precious gift of life.

I also invite you to start and make daily entries in a gratitude journal.  This practice is like a positive emotional savings account.

In challenging times, reviewing your gratitude journal can help you return to a more positive perspective that is more likely to serve you and those around you.

Practice being fully present with what is

There is simply no circumventing the present.

What is here now is here now.

Far too often many people, myself included, waste precious energies trying to avoid or burry things that they find challenging or difficult.

This is one of the root causes of procrastination.

Acceptance of what is currently going on in your life is the first step toward a more fulfilling future.

I invite you to fully embrace your life circumstances.

I also invite you to give the following practice a try.

Give thanks for what is and in this more centered space ask yourself: What is most important to me right now?

Always remember:

You are and have everything that you need to walk the path that you have chosen.

I sincerely hope that you found this post inspiring and useful.
