The Secret of Peace
The Secret of Peace.
It’s okay to want something. It’s okay to aspire to be more but it’s IMPERATIVE to be contented in now. Be grateful for all you have. Never let your dreams for more rob you of your rights to joy.
Man is insatiable. You will always yearn. You will yearn for that Range Rover Evoque, you will yearn for that mansion, you will yearn for your friend’s six packs. you will yearn for your friend’s designer’s clothes.
For me, I’m yearning to be Oprah Winfrey and Tyler Perry mixed in one. 😂
We are always dissatisfied. We always want something our neighbors have.
If you are dissatisfied with what you have now, remember, someone, somewhere is yearning for what you have to make his life complete.
The blind is begging for your sight.
The deaf is yearning to hear.
The lame is hoping to walk.
Someone is lying in the some hospital praying desperately for a heart transplant.
While you have a well functioning heart, a bright sight, an excellent hearing, food in your belly and roof over your head, yet, you still wallow in depression and sadness. Why?
Quit looking over to other people’s farms and till your own.
Find joy in now even in the midst of your storms. Find peace in now even in the midst of chaos.
Every new day, rise early and count your blessings. Be grateful for all you have then work your ass off for all you want.
Now, here is the difference. You will be working on your dreams from a point of gratitude and inner peace. You’ll be working with relaxed assurance that every good thing will come.
And they sure do come.
I love my Chi-family. 💖💖💖💖
