Calm in the Chaos

Taxi cabs, loud voices, and the shoving of people in a crowd- it sometimes seems impossible to stay calm in life’s chaos. There’s two types of chaos I can experience in my daily life- the hustle of the city and the ongoing stimulation of others around me.

At times, I would simply like to sit quietly by the water or live in a place without so many people or complications- yet my heart lies in the city.

Lately I have been thinking a lot about staying calm through the chaos life can bring. From gossip to managing room of students, both my personal and professional life can wear me down at the blink of an eye.

So, how does one keep their balance?

Somehow I have managed to retreat to my own little world- a world where I am limitless, peaceful, and content. A world where I find solace in my creativity, music, and nature. A world where I am able to communicate with something much bigger than me. A world where I live with purpose.

So, whether you’re frazzled at work or in the middle of an argument, remember to take a deep breath and look within. You’ll be surprised at the solace and can find within yourself.

Gossip: It’s Low Vibe Energy

It’s so easy to take things personally, isn’t it?

It has taken me years- and I mean years- to realize that gossip isn’t about me at all; cruel words, secret giggles, and lies are reflections of those speaking them.

A wise person once said “when you point the finger, there’s three pointing back at yourself.”  Although I’ve been fortunate to surround myself with high vibe people, it’s not to say I didn’t spend a large portion of my life not knowing the difference between people with good and bad intentions.

I used to listen to the mean words and think it was my fault.  I listened to everything on the outside and ignored the true feelings in my heart.  These days, I finally know better.

Gossip is nothing but low vibe energy to keep other people down and drag others to their level.

You have the chance to rise above it! 

Trust me, it takes practice, but tuning out those negative messages is completely possible- and once you do, life is so much more peaceful.

Keep doing you. The right people will come your way.
