The Secret to Life: This is Where You Live to Thrive

Written by on June 7, 2021 in Conscious Living, Thrive with 0 Comments

Why must I live there?

Your place may look different than mine, yet they have the same qualities. These qualities are not physical, they are mental and some may say spiritual. But I assure you, they are not religious. Religion is a form of regulation and the place I am talking about has none of that.  

What I am talking about is free flowing and very generous. Living Well!

What happens when you inhabit such a place?

I would say the most profound aspect is a sense of peace and tranquillity even during the most violent storm. Again, storm is a metaphor, for the raging winds are the difficulties experienced as we walk this road of life. We all have them, none escape. How we experience them though is vastly different.  

Some may say they have “tools” to help navigate difficult days. Tools in this sense are actually practices learned over time that become habits. They could be simple, such as being mindful and staying in the present moment (this is an extraordinary practice), meditation, yoga, qi gong,  and self-care, etc. 

This is the most important part!

When you form an excellent habit, then the huge boulder rolling toward you does not send you into panic mode. 

So, where you live, is inside you. It’s the place of your sense of being. Developing a sense of well being is one of the most important tasks one can encounter and master. It is the key to a life well lived and results in a peaceful demeanor.  

I have found, it is in the quiet that we grow and at the same time are renewed. I practice quiet most everyday. I go to that place within, without distractions and touch the eternal part of myself, this gives me strength, hope, courage and peace.  


I am in a storm and I remain calm and at peace.  Yes, I experience tiredness, yet I am consistently renewed in my spirit, the eternal part of me. How? I have developed habits that serve me in times of need. Thus, I receive peace and much hope. As you encounter the storms of life, may you be filled with the same.  ❤️ Julia
