Winning the Inner Peace Award, 2013

inner-peace-awardMadeline Scribes has been presented with the Inner Peace Award! It is an honor and a sign to us that a corner has been turned and a lot of the work it has taken to reach this new peak has all been worth the effort and the heartache.

This is a testament to everything all of us strive for.

Ajay came to our blog one day and left a comment so I decided to check out his blog too. I was astounded by what I found. The awards he has won and the Followers he has are astronomical! I couldn’t believe that someone who was so well received and literally famous, would bother to come and have a look at our tiny blog real estate, but he had. I was overwhelmed with respect. From there he answered my questions and mentored me in his own quiet and kind way. It is with thanks to him that our blog continues to grow in a steady and long term way.

I would like to take a moment and just speak personally about what this award means to me.

I woke up this morning, like every morning, going over the list in my head of what I needed to accomplish today in order to feel productive and giving. It was one of the first mornings in a very long time that a nagging worry wasn’t lingering and trying to throw a wrench into my good mood. It was one of the first of many good mornings to come for me because I have finally mastered something few people ever master.

I have learned how to let go.

I am experiencing Inner Peace.

It took me years to get here.

I won’t be fooling myself into believing I will never backslide, because I am certain I will. But for now I am content to feel the complete serenity of where I am and I will remember this feeling for the rest of my days as being one of the best feelings in the world.

What I am experiencing is just a small dot on the huge map of humanity that could eventually lead to world peace. Isn’t that something beautiful to hope for? I wish this calm to settle over everyone I know, have known and have yet to meet in my life.

Letting go has freed up a lot of my time and a huge part of my heart. I can now reach out and do what I love to do most in life and that is to give something back. Whether it be my time, advice or something I have made, I now have the strength in me to make that happen.

I didn’t do this alone.

I had a lot of assistance from the people that truly love me.

My friends.

My family.

I dedicate this to all of you for you are the beginning, the middle and the air I breath.

You are my Inner Peace.

    Sorry, I can’t figure out how to post an image here, so use your imagination. Picture yourself, sitting in the lotus position, eyed closed, hands resting on your knees, softly murmuring: “C’mon, inner peace. I don’t have all day.”

    Congratulations on taking the correct fork in the sometimes-bumpy road, and achieving Inner Peace. Or as the inimitable Yogi Berra once said, “When you come to a fork in the road, take it.”
