Finding Peaceful Moments
Charlotte Parsons | Writer
Our world feels like it’s just go, go, go all about the hustle 24/7 365 days a year. It almost feels impossible to find a moment of peace, but it isn’t. You have to be willing to make time to have those moments of peace.
Personally, I have a lot on my plate this semester with 5 classes, working closing shifts 1-2 days a week, and having a social life. It can be overwhelming sometimes, taking that step back to journal or something does help though.
I try to take a little bit of time each night before I go to bed to play some music and journal or put on a guided meditation. It doesn’t have to be this whole long process because I don’t have a set routine, I just go with whatever I’m feeling that night. I’m not telling you, “you have to do this because it will totally solve all of your problems and make your life absolutely 1000% perfect,” it’s how I find my peace. It definitely took some self-exploration to get me to this point.
This past summer was a turning point in my life for sure. As the summer was ending I just realized how unhappy I really was, I was working in a toxic environment, I also just got out of a toxic relationship and I just needed a change. So I quit my job, got back in school and turned to journaling and meditation.
I am now at a point in my life where I know things are still going to happen but I can find peace with my journal and meditation.
