I am safe because ...

I am safe because I have a well thought-out recovery plan waiting to be launched

In times of crisis, I am prepared.  Planning ahead is a gift of security that I give to myself.  Staying on offense allows me to be one step ahead of unexpected circumstances.

Long before a problem strikes, when my mind is clear, I design my plan.  My plan is accessible to me at any time.  I plan because I have resolved to live a life of peace.

Life is unpredictable, therefore I try to prepare myself as best as I can.  My life is precious, therefore I take good care of my family and myself.

I have peace in the midst of crisis because I am secure.  Because I plan ahead, I enjoy the calm before the storm. I also remain calm during the storm because I know that I am protected.  Even after the thunder comes to an end, I choose to be calm.

When I see a raging storm in front of me I resist the impulse to panic.  I remind myself that I have sunshine in my back pocket.  Crisis cannot bend me out of shape because peace is my core support.

I am a beacon of hope for the people around me.  Having a plan available to me helps me to take care of myself and those around me. Others look to me as a role model so I remain strong in my resolve and inner peace.

I can be joyful in the midst of trouble.  I can recover from life’s greatest challenges.  My plan helps me walk through the fire with my peace intact.

Self-Reflection Questions:


1. Do I know what to do during unforeseen circumstances?
2. What challenges have tried to steal my peace?
3. How can I overcome the impulse to panic?

I do not sweat the small stuff

Little things that are happening around me cause me no concern.

I maintain a calm feeling in my daily life and I can handle the little things that go awry around me. Often when things happen that are out of my control I can look at them and laugh at the irony of the situation. I have room in my life for a few stray incidents.

Life is interesting and things happen every day that are out of my control. This is okay; it adds to the interest. I can remain calm when little incidents happen because they do not hinder my day or my life in any way that I cannot manage.

Often the little incidents that happen are kind of funny. Today I can find the humor in these situations. I can remain calm throughout these situations because I have a base of calmness that surrounds me.

I seek out a calm state of mind on a daily basis; this helps me to avoid unnecessary worry over the little things that happen in life. I surround myself in a blanket of calmness by getting the rest that I need, avoiding over-scheduling, and allowing myself to enjoy my hobbies. This blanket of calmness protects me from life's little upsets.

Today I will make sure I am surrounded by my protection of calmness and will be able to endure life's little quirks and upsets. I will remain calm, regardless of what may come. I will learn to laugh instead of worry.

Self-Reflection Questions:


1.    Have I covered myself in a blanket of calmness?
2.    Have I sought out the humor in life’s little upsets?
3.    Have I taken an initiative to remain calm?
 

Mind quotes

When one door of happiness closes, another opens. But often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one which has been opened for us.
