When we have peace in our hearts and minds, we draw peace into our lives. When discord and disharmony present themselves, we can stand firm. When we let go of the need to prove ourselves, nothing and no one can disturb the quiet and peace of our minds~Iyanla Van Zant
Ahhh, this is so true. It's a very simple three sentences. But it packs a wallop. And it has taken me a few years to to learn to draw that peace into my life. First you have to be aware that there is discord. And I had the same story of victimhood going on in my head, I didn't even recognize it. Now I do! There had to be significant changes in boundaries and in thought patterns, but I'm doing it and the quiet in my mind is fabulous!
And, letting go of the need to prove ourselves! Yes, yes, and YES!!!
