Positiveness in Storms

Even in the midst of life's many storms.  We have the capacity to stand in the center of our own peace.

So it's 3 in the morning, for some reason I cannot sleep even though physically I had a rather exhausting day yesterday.  And as I sit here listening to the crickets, birds and other creatures awake at this hour I realize I am letting myself become bogged down by life's storms.  Negative stuff, others issues, you name it. 

Stuff I wish I could fix or make disappear but which is not always possible sometimes.  I know it's not good to let the negative consume us, yet finding that center of peace is difficult as well.  No matter what I try to do lately to resolve it, seems to only create more of it.  It's frustrating, even rather a lonesome feeling at times.  Even love feels like it has taken a back seat to things that in the grand scheme of life are just not all that important. 

Of course I wish people could be honest with themselves and others, do the right thing or see the hurt their actions/behaviors/issues can create but for whatever reasons sometimes they cannot.  Life is full of storms and it's up to us to weather them to find the calm in the mist of them.  But there lies the tricky part

As I'm a strong believer in forgiveness, everyone makes mistakes and has moments of weakness causing wrong to triumph over right.  But what I struggle with is when the same mistakes or actions are made over and over again, especially when it affects others.  It can be something small yet enough to hurt, or even break ones faith.  And in return create storms.


Finding peace in the middle of life's storms is anything but easy.  It requires us to set aside the negative and focus on the positive. To be the best, do the best, try the best, with what we have been given. 

One of the worse things is let the negative stuff or emotions that occur consume one.  I realize it only hurts us not whatever caused it.  And I know it's important to just let it go, let the universe handle it. Sometimes we simply cannot fix and solve everything though we can choose how we think about it.  Changing our perspective, our thoughts can go a long way into turning something bad into something great.  But knowing it and being able to do it are two different things!
I realize it's important to balance negativeness with positiveness.  It doesn't mean forgetting nor even forgiving right away.  Just need to try to focus on the good of life not let the other stuff overwhelm us.  Besides they say what you focus on is what you get more of, so isn't it crucial then to focus on the positive....but how?

Maybe it is as easy as simply blocking out the negative, focusing on the positive, trying to accept or let go of what we cannot change and letting the universe handle the rest.  Not sure I have all the answers but in the wee hours of the morning something is better than nothing. 

One step at a time can sometimes be measured in minutes....one less minute today worrying is a goal every single one of us could achieve.  And if you replace that minute with a minute doing something productive, even think peaceful loving thoughts those minutes will add up and slowly your mindset will evolve in wonderful ways.
