Create Peace by Design

As I enter my fifth decade, I reflect on the level of freedom, joy, health, peace, purpose, and love in my life. 

At 40, I did not fully comprehend my role in co-creating the level of satisfaction in all areas of my life. 

All of it really begins and ends with the level of peace I bring to the moment.

Does my energy show up as peace or pushiness?

Each day, I may make any given moment mean what I choose.  

I choose my thoughts. 

I choose my feelings. 

I choose my actions (or inactions). 

I may make things mean something positive or understandable about me or someone else. 

I may think “I wonder what led this person to behave this way,” or “it sounds like this person is being fully human.” 

I may feel happy, grateful, and motivated. 

I may act from a place of clarity, compassion, and curiosity. 

I may not always think, feel, or act these ways. 

When I do not, I get curious with myself, show myself compassion, and clarify what I need to act in alignment with my vision and values. 

This allows me to show up with more clarity, compassion, and curiosity with the people around me. 

It means I choose to care for, value, and respect myself.

I cannot force or push anyone else into behaving differently.

If someone or something around me does not care for, value, or respect me, I may clarify my wishes and expectations.

I can gently let people or things go when we are no longer a good match.

My level of satisfaction results from a series of moment-by-moment decisions.

My decisions create my level of contentment and satisfaction.

I take responsibility for my choices, which I fully control, including my thoughts, my feelings, and my actions. 

Choosing from a place of peace, and honoring my personal peace, is up to me.

Aligning with my vision and values, I experience a greater level of inner peace.

My inner peace creates outer peace.

I continue to create the results in all areas of my life. 

I choose to co-create by design, rather than by default.

You may choose to live a life by design too.

You may co-create the level of freedom, joy, health, peace, purpose, and love in your life.
