Funny, grace is one of the words I love most. It is about kindness, elegance, softness, and when I was choosing a name for my website, many years ago, Gracefulstory came very quickly to me. Living with grace means seeing the gifts of your past challenges and how they supported you in becoming who You are today. I have discovered that when I focus my attention on my breath, I can anchor my wondering mind and my heart beating slows down. I become present in my life without regrets from the past or worries about the future. I have also noticed that when I fill my heart with gratitude, it expands, and it gives me hope and encouragement to keep going forward, no matter what challenges I am facing.
Just be you. All those concerns you have about how you look, act, or what people think don’t matter. Your inner spirit speaks through your heart. The Universe does too. So, use your brain as a tool to gather information, but listen to to the guidance of your heart in the end. When you live a loving life, you feel surrounded by love. And, you will be making a difference in the world, whether you feel it or not. Being kind hearted will enhance the well-being of everyone in your life, including you.
Don’t let drama and discord take up space in your life. Limit your exposure to what could be unnecessarily upsetting and focus on what is peaceful, useful, and warms your heart. You will feel much better when you do. Don’t let the things you own, your schedule, or people stuffocate you. When you focus your attention on what you find useful, beautiful, or meaningful and let the rest go, you create a sanctuary in both your heart and home.
When we stop fighting what life is giving us we begin to learn and grow with the challenges bestowed upon us. Those trials are defining our path ahead. When we stop being warriors and fighters, we can settle into graceful living, where our hearts are filled with inner peace and, joy and our daily life is filled with tranquility and gratitude.
