It’s a phrase we use a lot at Brave Girls Club…”go where the peace is”. It has deep meaning for us and helps us immeasurably to make good decisions and choices. But today I received an email from a fairly new Brave Girl. She told me a bit about her life and some of the struggles she is facing, and asked if perhaps I could explain more fully what ‘Go where the peace’ means.
I did some hunting through our archives and found a particular “Little Bird Told Me” Daily Truth email message that explains this beautifully. All of us can use a reminder of exactly what this means and how it can bless our lives…so here goes, new brave girl…
Dear Gorgeous Girl,
Peace is good. Peace is so so good. It is worth it to travel whatever lengths you need to go to feel peace. Often, peace is right in front of our face if we will just silence everything else out. Then sometimes we have to make really tough choices or go to great lengths to feel at peace. Whatever it takes, it is worth it. Always go where the peace is, especially the peace in your heart.
Peace is defined as in the dictionary as: freedom of the mind from annoyance, distraction, anxiety, an obsession, etc.; tranquility; serenity. But peace is also defined as the normal, non-warring condition of a nation, group of nations, or the world (or ourselves!). Another definition of peace is silence; stillness.
Sometimes we are at war with our own selves, sometimes with an issue — an addiction or an illness. Making peace with that part of ourselves is a huge step toward peace. Sometimes we just have to COME to peace with it. Some things are a lifetime struggle, a part of us that we just have to come to peace with — and constantly seek peace inside of it — and help that part of ourselves seek for peace.
When making tough decisions, you will never regret making the decision that brings the most peace to your heart. Sometimes it doesn’t bring the most peace to your LIFE in the short term, but if it is what brings the most peace to your heart, that’s the place to go. Always go where the peace is.
Seek peace, sweet girl.
You are loved.
Sending you so much love,
