Let’s be honest with one another here. Finding peace isn’t always easy.
Life is tough for most people. While I am sure we all have our ups and downs, some people will have more on the high side, and some will have more on the down side. It’s just the way life goes, I guess.
Our local daily dishrag…errr… newspaper … recently ran some story from the AP saying how most people think money can buy happiness. And all I thought was … well of course it can.
Think about it. What are the things that stress our people most of all? Things like politics, or personal life happenings, or work etc. But in the end, the thing that likely stresses most people out is financial. It could be bills or loans or payments – anything. Some people struggle to put food on the table. Some people don’t have a home to go to.
So yes, money can buy happiness and bring you peace. But maybe it’s not in the way some may think.
Think of it this way … if you could be fully debt free and have no bills – outside of ones that are paid monthly (think: household bills), you could pay off a mortgage, car loan and anything else. So that could mean your current paycheck doesn’t go to bills, rather everyday life.
Life had a way of coming at you hard. With my professional life, the stressful time of the year is coming. My regular life has also been tough, so finding peace isn’t always easy.
Truthfully, it should be.
I just try to live a good life. I can’t say I always do. In fact, I don’t think any of us truly live an amazing life all the time. We’re human, after all. Sometimes, finding peace through all of it isn’t easy.
But what kind of things can we do to find that peace? I can’t speak for everybody, but here are some of my go-to things to help find peace:
- Go for a walk
- Play with Harper
- Chill with Harper
- Blog (sometimes)
- Take photos
- Go for a drive
- Explore new places
Now, to be fair, sometimes these are short things and last just a bit. But it helps clear my mind. I do the best I can to live a good life. But life always will include stress and such, so it’s best to be able to find your peace!
