For a few months now I have had the feeling of deep inner peace. I almost can not believe it. The restlessness that has always been there is gone. I was always in ‘survival mode’, always alert, busy, and productive. Now it feels more like just BEING and enjoying.
It is a kind of base layer of peace that can occasionally be overcome by busyness, stress, or a to-do list. But nothing can mess with the foundation anymore. It still surprises me every day and I enjoy every moment of it. This is what I’ve always tried to achieve by DOING all kinds of things, which only pushed me further away from it. Now that I’m there, it seems so easy: you just have to BE.
I’ve been thinking about what I’ve done lately that could have resulted in that mega shift. Of course, I have been working on my personal development and ‘cleaning up old sh*t’ for years. And I don’t know if it’s a cause or effect, but the shift seems to have come after I announced that I’m going to ‘retire’ in 1.5 years. The ‘endpoint’ in sight, brought a kind of inner relaxation.
In this blog I would like to share some practical tips that may also help you create more peace and space in your busy life
