Percolate Peace (Day 4)

Percolate Peace

Good Morning from Maine!  #Gratitude 

Welcome to Percolate Daily.

 I hope you follow along with me each day, perhaps even consider using a journal to write your thoughts as we go.  I also would love your comments and I’m sure others would appreciate them too. In my book, Percolate – Let Your Best Self Filter Through, today and for the next several days, we are following along with Percolate Point 9 – Percolate Peace.

Percolate Peace

Lifestyle changes occur when we become aware that our ability to experience peace is challenged at some level. To more easily return to a state where you feel peaceful to your core, we can make change.  Often, even a tiny change can help you change your course.  Awareness moves with us as we pay attention to the way something or someone makes us feel and we move our energy.    Let’s think about the graphic below and how our choices add or distract from our levels of peace.

The types of choices you make in your life either add to or distract from your levels of peace.  These choices move your energy around. Some are unaware or not tuned into their energy shifts and thus not fully aware of their full potential of centered peace within. When we move too fast through our lives we might miss cues, which can bring us out of balance.  Energy is always changing.  To help you find your core of peace, think with your heart.

JOURNAL

Imagine if you started and ended each day from peace. Write about what that looks like for you.

Are you thinking with your heart?

How are you spending your energy?

What kind of choices are you making?

Does your behavior match your values?

Is it difficult for you to break from your friends and the crowd and follow your own highest, truest values and self?

Welcome to Percolate Daily.

 I hope you follow along with me each day, perhaps even consider using a journal to write your thoughts as we go.  I also would love your comments and I’m sure others would appreciate them too.  My new book is  Percolate – Let Your Best Self Filter Through and for today, we are going to take our first coffee break. We’ll do this each Saturday and Sunday for quiet time, reflection and moments.

Percolate Coffee Break

Be Your Best You

Be-YourBestYou-on-coffee-cup

This week we focused on Acceptance, Gratitude, Love, Kindness, Joy and Values. We talked about change and our various behaviors and attitudes.

JOURNAL

Do you have an attitude of gratitude? Why?

When you aren’t feeling like you have an attitude of gratitude, what is happening around you?

What practice do you continue to put in place in your life to bring you to the core of your most highest, peaceful self?

Be Your Best You

Love, Elizabeth

Good Morning from Maine!  #Gratitude 

Welcome to Percolate Daily.

 I hope you follow along with me each day, perhaps even consider using a journal to write your thoughts as we go.  I also would love your comments and I’m sure others would appreciate them too. In my book, Percolate – Let Your Best Self Filter Through, today, we are following along with Percolate Point 6 – Expresso Yourself.

Percolate Values

Percolate-Values

As we grow, change and age, we discover and create a value system.  Our lives and our value system are also dynamic and can change.  Does your behavior match your values? We usually operate somewhere on a day-to-day continuum depending on how calm and aware we are of what our inner voice says.  When we aren’t able to hear the highest self-talk, we tend to neglect our self-care and turn to external sources.  This can trigger imbalance.  When we are quiet and tune-in to ourselves and circumstances, we can bring ourselves back to core.

Here are a few examples of my personal values:

1. Practice Gratitude

2. Developing and Maintaining a practice of self-love and self-worth, where behaviors match values

3. Moments Mattering

4. Developing, mentoring and inspiring others

5. Having an abundance of integrity

6. Taking responsibility

7. Believing & Having Courage

8. Never Giving Up

9. Living to my best, highest self and potential – Being My Best You

10. Embracing aging with grace, humor and style

There are situations all throughout our lifetimes where behaviors happen around us that we don’t agree with.  It might be difficult to stand and hold your values in place, especially when you don’t want to behave in-line with a crowd or small group or even yourself for that matter.  Develop your core values and know who you and what your being can and can’t handle.  Our bodies tell us if you listen.  They tell us in the form of illness, tiredness, lack of focus, happiness, positive energy and more.  Listen to yourself.

JOURNAL

What are your top 10 or 20 values?

Does your behavior match your values?

Do you know your core values?

Do you know and recognize when your body is in imbalance mode?

What do you do to bring yourself back to center?

What behavior is in your highest, best interest and helps you be your authentic best?

How do you remove yourself from situations where the behaviors don’t match your own values? How do you handle these situations?

Be Principled
