Inner peace is when you are mentally and spiritually at peace and when you don’t let the situations and people affect your emotions. It involves accepting things as they are without struggling against them or resisting them in any way. And it involves living in the present. When someone says that they have reached a stage of inner peace they mean that they have attained a state of mind that is calm and free of judgments.
Achieving this state of mind should be our top-most goal. We should choose it above all material pursuits. You know why? To free ourselves from anxieties, fears and worries and to not let negative thoughts drag us down. Because only without these, we can become the best version of ourselves.
So, be goal-oriented and work for everything that you wish to have in the life of your dreams but make sure inner peace is one of your goals.
Start small and take baby steps. Live life as you have already attained inner peace and before you know you will get there. Train yourself to take the first step today and try to not let the situations and people affect your mood. Saturdays are too good to let that happen, anyway.
