Peace is the ultimate state of being. A state in which we are meant to be but somewhere in this chaos of life we forget that our number one priority should be our peace of mind.
How often you hear yourself saying:
‘I don’t know why in spite of having everything, I don’t have peace’ ?
To be at peace, one needs to start working on oneself first. You can only make a peaceful impact on the world when you yourself are at peace from within.
First step towards your journey towards living in peace is Accepting your self. Accepting ourselves is the most difficult & underrated thing that we have to do with ourselves.
Few years back, I had a bad fall from the stairs. Though there was no major injury at that time, over a period of time I realised I had a pain in my foot that turned chronic, due to the shock from the fall. Condition became such that there was once a time I was not able to lift my foot. Pain was severe & it resulted in mental trauma because my movement was limited. It resulted into me getting into unhealthy habits like eating junk & no exercise, due to frustration. Long story short - I was 12 kgs more in 3 months. This state of mind continued for couple of years. My confidence levels went down drastically. I was not able to accept my weight gain & the pain. I was doing some exercises on & off but was not disciplined because I had not accepted my reality yet.
Then finally, realisation hit me. I was determined to get back in shape . But before that I needed to accept myself. I became aware of what is & what needs to be done.
I started taking baby steps like walk 15 mins, do yog for 10-15 mins. Slowly I developed a disciplined routine. Changed my food habits & other habits that were pulling me down.
Result : I am 4 kgs down in less than 2 months. It’s still a long way to go but now at least I am disciplined about my fitness routine.
So the thing here is that I started getting results which eventually led me to inner peace only when I started with accepting myself & my pain. Then I worked on my shortcomings, took small steps & then made a goal oriented routine around it. When I accepted myself, I started enjoying life once again, which resulted into inner peace.
So accept yourself first.
Accept the way you look, the way you talk, the way you laugh, the way you cry, the way you eat, the way you walk, the way you think. Just accept yourself completely & then start working on your goals.
You might not be able to do all things at once. Start small, take one step at a time. Accept your shortcomings. Work towards improving them but don't let yourself down because of the imperfections.
Remember, Perfection is a Myth.
