I was inspired today to write about this after being told by someone that they love how calm I always am. I am going to explore what I mean by being calm.
What Kind of Calm?
So, when I say being in a state of calm, I mean literally being at peace. I don’t believe there is any point in stressing over things in life, whether it be the everyday challenges or the so-called bigger picture. Calmness can be called multiple things: serenity, tranquillity, peacefulness, pacified. Whichever you prefer.
Why Should We Remain Calm?
I am aware that in the past people have disagreed with my outlook on this. Some have felt that remaining calm is not the right attitude to have. But, at the end of the day this is your life, and you can make what you want of it. This is my way of doing things, and I am just sharing that with you.
However, the truth is that if you are stressed all the time, you will only attract more stress to yourself. Whether you like it or not. If you remain calm, you will feel more relaxed and ultimately, more happy.
Like with everything in life – we have a choice.
We chose how we react to everything and everyone. Our reaction determines how we feel. Blaming others for things which you did not want to happen is by no means the way forward. If you want to feel at peace with life, with yourself, then you have to take responsibility for yourself. Not just your actions, your emotions as well.
How Can I Stay Calm?
This will be different for everybody. My way of seeing this is that I bring my reaction into my awareness. So, if someone does something which could be deemed annoying, I have the choice whether to react in a negative way or not. Or, I can rise above it and not let it affect me. Of course, this can be challenging and you will feel tested at times. You may become aggravated, but, I promise you that with practice, you will understand how easy it us to think about the choice before you take any action.
I hope you enjoyed this post, thank you for reading.
