Would you like to keep things simple this Christmas? Isn’t there enough going on with chronic illness symptoms and dealing with fibromyalgia? In the interest of paring things down to what’s truly central in life, I’d like to offer the following P.E.A.C.E. prayer.
Take the time to PAUSE today. Stop and listen to the beat of your own heart, if only for a moment. Feel the stillness within.
EMBRACE your current feelings, emotions, and thoughts. Whatever they are, simply observe them with a sense of curiosity and neutrality.
When you think of your situation, ACCEPT who you are, how you feel, and what you want from life. Focus on the journey and your destination will unfold all on its own.
At all times, be kind. Show COMPASSION to others and don’t forget to include yourself in that list.
Whittle away the debris of busy-ness and take a deep breath. Ask yourself, “Is this truly ESSENTIAL?” If so, proceed with a smile on your lips and a prayer in your heart.
Blessings to each and
every one of you
