8 Words That Will Bring You Instant Peace

You may not be where you want be.

Waiting tables, living in overdraft with two maxed credit cards might not be the glamorous twenty-something life you envisioned as a little girl.

Drinking a bottle of red wine and watching rom-coms on Netflix alone probably wasn’t your ideal Saturday night either.

And I’m sure traveling halfway around the world only to suffer crippling homesickness on the third day of your soul-searching odyssey isn’t what you imagined “wanderlust” would feel like.

Life gets real sometimes. Our expectations let us down. We don’t get what we want. Obstacle after obstacle, after obstacle come at us until, exhausted and on the brink, we throw our hands up in the sky and ask, WHY?

If you’re in this funky space right now, I send all of my love.

I’ve been there. You’ve been there. We’ve all been there. It sucks.

But let me liberate you. Let me share with you ONE THOUGHT, that when understood brings INSTANT PEACE.

This tiny, little idea is a game changer. Use it whenever you feel yourself swept away by fear.

Are you ready for it? Here it is.

You are exactly where you need to be.

Yes… you. Right here. Right now. Exactly. Just as it is. Nothing more, nothing less.

Got it? OK.

The circumstances, people, thoughts and feelings currently swirling through your life are not random; they are a part of your soul’s path. 

Think of them as teachers, each with their own vital lesson. When you understand the lesson, you’ve mastered the skills required to evolve into the next best expression of yourself. In other words, you’ve learned what you need to learn to live a happier life.

The more you resist the circumstances, people, thoughts and feelings going on for you (aka your teachers), the harder it will be to learn your lessons.

And guess what happens if you don’t learn your lessons? You stay stuck.

So if you’re looking around at your life right now and not totally loving what you’re seeing, know this: you’ve got to grow to get to where you want to go.

And growth happens when we are awake, present and engaged with our life.

It happens when we open ourselves up to possibility.

It happens when we connect with our intuition and trust its guidance.

It happens when we shift our perspective from “why me” to “what is this teaching me?”

When you’re living in that flow, you can’t fail, because you know everything is as it should be, and that everything happening in your life is happening so that you can evolve into the best possible version of you that exists.

There are no mistakes. There is no random. There is no going back.

You are exactly where you need to be.

Just love,

Alex
