Today’s To Do List for a Better Me

I compiled a list of things I need to do today and everyday in order to find inner peace.

I compiled a list of things I need to do today and everyday in order to find inner peace.

During my journey I was hoping to find some peace in my life.  I thought getting away from the stresses of everyday life and living on the road would provide the answer I was looking for.  I found many things on the road but peace, unfortunately, was not one of them.  I came home very disappointed with that aspect of the trip (all the other aspects of the trip were wonderful).  Then I realized that I need to look inside myself first, I need to lose the drama that surrounds everyday life, I need to think of others first, I need to pray and be thankful for all things, good or bad.

Running away from problems or situations is never the answer for they just follow you wherever you go.  You may be able to outrun them for a time, but they always catch up with you.  I may not have found actual peace on the road, but I did figure out a way to have more of it in my life.  I am going to try to practice this to do list everyday  along with living a more simple lifestyle and maybe, just maybe, I will experience the inner peace I so desperately seek.

  1. I love following your journey, mostly because I have been considering a similar trip. Please consider that inner peace comes only through complete surrender to our Lord Jesus Christ. He will guide you & ‘love you through’ whatever comes into your life. Blessings to you always.

    1. Thank you so much for the kind words. You are ABSOLUTELY correct, peace can only come from Jesus. I feel far from Him right now and that was part of the journey to reconnect with Him. I allowed myself to become burdened with the world and I turned my back on Him. I am still struggling with it, but each day I see a little more glimmer of hope. I hope you are able to take your trip. Just being “unplugged” for a little while has an amazing effect on a soul. Thank you again for the reassuring words!! Good luck and God bless you!!
