Dear Endeavoring Soul,
When things are very difficult, as they sometimes are in life, we have to learn to preserve our energy for what our most important stewardships are. This requires discipline and lots of remembering. It is easy to get sucked into and caught in the never-ending swirls of drama and sensationalism, and it is hard to not become triggered to the point of paralysis.
We must protect our personal peace.
to defend from trouble, harm, attack, etc
To protect something something that you cannot even see, like peace…we have to figure out what it is that gives us our peace. Usually peace comes when what we believe aligns with what we say and what we do. It also comes from being good to each other…it is hard to be at peace when we have hurt others intentionally. Sometimes it is hard to do all of these things simultaneously. But the things in life that matter most are rarely easy.
We cannot have world peace if we cannot first start with personal peace. Making decisions and trying to make a difference when we are panicked, triggered and emotional is not especially effective. Being at peace helps us to create peace.
You can do difficult things, and the world needs you now more than ever.
You are so very loved,
