When You Start To Accept Things You Can’t Control In Life, These 10 Amazing Things Will Happen

When You Start To Accept Things You Can’t Control In Life, These 10 Amazing Things Will Happen

Things happen throughout the course of our lives that we simply have no control of.  Whether it is a serious illness, or the loss of someone, or losing something that means the world to us.  There is also things that happen that you are solely responsible for: that you are ashamed of, and wish you could take back, but you can’t.  And all of that stress, pain, and resentment can be a heavy burden on your shoulders.  Even though you can’t change your past to make the present better, you can make a change to brighten your future.

Firstly, you must accept the situation that you are in.  You must be able to reassure yourself that everything in life happens for a reason.  Whatever burden you are facing isn’t accidental. You have to simply look at it as an opportunity for a new beginning. You are still capable of doing great things in life, but you have to accept your past and build on it.  If you can do all of that, you can look forward to these things beginning to happen.

1. You will start to have more faith in yourself.

The only person that can stand in your way is you.  If you have faith in yourself to accept, and overcome life changes, then you will be able to take on problems like this for the rest of your life.

2. You will be able to think more rationally.

Once you start to lift the burden off of yourself, you will become less stressed, and be able to think more rationally.  Once you are able to do this, nothing can stand in your way.

3. You will learn to be truly happy again.

Its easy to wake up, and put on a fake smile to get you through your day without having to face your problems.  When you accept where your life has brought you, you will soon find that its even easier to just wake up, and already have a smile on your face.

4. You will be able to move on.

Because isn’t this what you wanted to be able to do in the first place?

5. You will regret not accepting the changes sooner.

And you will accept the fact that you didn’t, because you will know that it wasn’t the right time before now.

6. People will notice a change in your personality.

When you accept the changes, and begin moving on for the better, people will be able to notice a new sense of pride and integrity within you.

7. You will be a lot more motivated.

Once you begin to move on, you are going to want to set certain goals for yourself to help you move on, and to change for the better.  And nothing can stop you!

 8. You will be able to give up unhealthy habits.

Your new-found outlook on life will no longer require you to turn to a vice to get you by on a day to day basis.  You may find yourself able to put down the drink, or cigarette, and turn to yourself, and loved ones to realize that they are the only thing you really need that will help make things easier for you.

9. Your health will improve.

Your health may improve by simply accepting the changes in your life.  You may be able to slip out of that depression you were in.  Or maybe you find yourself sleeping better at night.  Maybe you decid that exercising will help you shake off those negative vibes.  Whatever it may be, it will definitely make you feel a lot better.

10. You will be able to influence others in the same situation.

There is nothing better than the satisfaction of knowing that you are able to help somebody else that is going through something that you have gone through.  As a blogger, I grasp that opportunity every chance that I get.  Knowing that I was able to reach out to at least one person makes my job worth more than a paycheck ever will.

Whatever your personal situation may be, there is no reason, no matter how big or small it is, that you haven’t yet made a change for the better. Just remember, it is all about accepting who you are, what the situation is, and how you can turn it around and make it into something amazing.

30 Small Habits To Lead A More Peaceful Life

30 Small Habits To Lead A More Peaceful Life

In today’s world, true peace must come from within us and our own actions. Here are 30 small things you can do on a regular basis to increase your overall sense of harmony, peace, and well-being:

1. Don’t go to every fight you’re invited to

Particularly when you’re around those who thrive on chaos, be willing to decline the invitation to join in on the drama.

2. Focus on your breath

Throughout the day, stop to take a few deep breaths. Keep stress at bay with techniques such as “square breathing.” Breathe in for four counts, hold for four counts, then out for four counts, and hold again for four counts. Repeat this cycle four times.

3. Get organized and purge old items

A cluttered space often creates a cluttered spirit. Take the time to get rid of anything you haven’t used in a year and invest in organizational systems that help you sustain a level of neatness.

4. Stop yourself from being judgmental

Whenever you are tempted to have an opinion about someone else’s life, check your intentions. Judging others creates and promotes negative energy.

5. Say ‘thank you’ early and often

Start and end each day with an attitude of gratitude. Look for opportunities in your daily routine and interactions to express appreciation.

6. Smile more

Even if you have to “fake it until you make it,” there are many scientific benefits of smiling and laughing. Also, pay attention to your facial expression when you are doing neutral activities such as driving and walking. Turn that frown upside down!

7. Don’t worry about the future

As difficult as this sounds, there is a direct connection between staying in the present and living a more peaceful life. You cannot control the future. As the old proverb goes, “Worry is like a rocking chair. It gives you something to do, but it won’t get you anywhere.” Practice gently bringing your thoughts back to the present.

8. Eat real food

The closer the food is to the state from which it came from the earth, the better you will feel in eating it. Choose foods that grew from a plant over food that was made in a plant.

9. Choose being happy over being right

Too often, we sacrifice inner peace in order to make a point. It’s rarely worth it.

10. Keep technology out of the bedroom

Many studies, such as one conducted by Brigham and Women’s Hospital, have connected blue light of electronic devices before bed to adverse sleep and overall health. To make matters worse, many people report that they cannot resist checking email and social media when their cell phone is in reach of their bed, regardless of the time.

11. Make use of filtering features on social media

You may not want to “unfriend” someone completely, however you can choose whether you want to follow their posts and/or the sources of information that they share.

12. Get comfortable with silence

When you picture someone who is the ultimate state of peace, typically they aren’t talking.

13. Listen to understand, not to respond

So often in conversations, we use our ears to give us cues about when it is our turn to say what we want to say. Practice active listening, ask questions, process, then speak.

14. Put your troubles in a bubble

Whenever you start to feel anxious, visualize the situation being wrapped in a bubble and then picture that sphere floating away.

15. Speak more slowly

Often a lack of peace manifests itself in fast or clipped speech. Take a breath, slow down, and let your thoughtful consideration drive your words.

16. Don’t procrastinate

Nothing adds stress to our lives like waiting until the last minute.

17. Buy a coloring book

Mandala coloring books for adults are becoming more popular because of their connection to creating inner peace.

18. Prioritize yourself

You are the only person who you are guaranteed to live with 24 hours a day for the rest of your life.

19. Forgive others

Holding a grudge is hurting you exponentially more than anyone else. Let it go.

20. Check your expectations

Presumption often leads to drama. Remember the old saying, “Expectations are premeditated resentments.”

21. Engage in active play

Let your inner child come out and have some fun. Jump, dance, play, and pretend!

22. Stop criticizing yourself

The world is a hard enough place with more than enough critics. Your life is not served well by being one of them.

23. Focus your energy and attention on what you want

Thoughts, words, and actions all create energy. Energy attracts like energy. Put out what you want to get back.

24. Assign yourself “complaint free” days.

Make a conscious decision not to complain about anything for a whole day. It might be harder than you think and the awareness will stick with you.

25. Surround yourself with people you truly enjoy being in the company of

Personalities tend to be contagious, and not everyone’s is worth catching. Be judicious in your choices.

26. Manage your money

Financial concerns rank top on the list of what causes people stress. Take the time each month to do a budget, calculate what you actually spend and sanity check that against the money you have coming in.

27. Stop trying to control everything

Not only is your inner control freak sabotaging your sense of peace, it is also likely getting in the way of external relationships as well.

28. Practice affirmations

Repeat positive phrases that depict the life and qualities you want to attract. It may not come naturally to you, but it works.

29. Get up before sunrise

Personally witnessing the dawn brings a unique sense of awe and appreciation for life.

30. Be yourself

Nothing creates more inner discord than trying to be something other than who we really are. Authenticity breeds happiness.
