Now that you decided how you want to feel in 2022, it is time to dig deeper.
For me, once I decided I want to feel At Peace, I started to ponder what does “at peace” mean to me? The same feeling can mean different thing to different people.
I took time to reflect and journal and three meanings came to mind:
Persistence, Congruence & Connection
Persistence: Reaching peace and tranquility is a hard task… it needs work and persistence. Persistence means continuing firmly on my course of action in spite of difficulty and opposition… Continuing to strive, to endure... Persistence is part of being resilient, content and patient… “Just keep going!” as Little Dori says.
Congruence: At peace requires that I work on keeping my body, mind, heart, and soul in agreement and harmony all the time. Again, hard task… but, hopefully doable.
Connection: Keeping my connection to my heart and soul, to God, to His Book, to my family, my community, to the world and to life itself.
These might not sound like “goals” in the conventional, western sense of the word, yet, at this stage of my journey, these psychological and spiritual goals seemed more important and more of a priority than any material achievements.
You might be at a different stage of your life, you might add some material goals like passing exams, buying a house or focusing on your family… That’s totally fine… Think and craft your list…
Have a beautiful week
