Go Within to Find the Peace
Just as the foliage moves into a quieter time to prepare for a fruitful year ahead, our life coach columnist suggests ways for you to do the same.
Welcome November. Fall is upon us and the calendar is winding down with only two months of 2020 left. It’s been a year full of challenges, uncertainty, stretching, and life interrupted – your new reality.
This time of year, one of my favorites, with the cooler nights, cozy sweaters, and the changing foliage, all reminding us to move into the next season of life with grace, trusting you will use this time of hibernation to align with what’s next.
You may be asking, “how can one align with what’s next?” when there are so many distractions from social media, television, conversations, and uncertainty that it becomes to challenging to find the inner peace.
Leaning into what’s next begins with eliminating distractions and quieting the mind so you can listen. Going within to find the peace begins with the quieter you become the more you can hear.

It can be a game changer for managing and dealing with situations that have you stuck, confused, concerned, or even mad. Tapping into your own thoughts and understanding allows for a foundation to be created for finding the inner peace to knowing that all is well.
Give it a try. You may be surprised at what you learn about yourself. Have fun. And no judgement of right/wrong. It’s all good!
Here’s to creating the life you deserve! Melissa
