Life is a continuous road.

It gets windy, twisted, and scary.

Sometimes you feel like you’re going the wrong direction.

You may come to a four-way stop,

and not know which direction to head.

You reach out to those around you,

to point you in the “right” direction.

However, what is the right direction?

Is there even one?

Have you ever been going down a road,

feeling like it’s the right one,

only to end up stranded with no idea how to get back?

Sometimes in life,

the right roads lead to the wrong place.

We tend to allow ourselves to believe in what others say.

Your peace does not come from other people.

Peace starts within.

Take a moment,


Step back from the world and reflect.

Think of the things that bring you pain.

Try to imagine your life without it.

The moment you do, is the first way to peace.

Humans tend to hold onto things because they’re scared of change.

We hold on to people who bring us down,

because we believe they’ll change.

However, you can’t control the way others are.

Toxic people tend to be oblivious to their toxicity.

You can call them out on it,

only for them to flip it.

Those people will break you.

They’ll create chaos in your life,

and drive you to the ledge.

Your life is absolutely precious.

You deserve to wake up and see the world blooming.

Seeing the majestic blue sky,

paired with the slow movements of the clouds.

Feeling the sun shining down on you.

Absorbing the energy,

and feeling alive again.

Many things hold people back from peace.

Especially our past.

Humans tend to reminisce the most on the past,

then to build up their future.

We dwell on our past mistakes.

Your past mistakes do not define you.

Past mistakes are your futures new beginnings.

  1. I can not believe you had actually seen my suggestion on a path to your own peace. I thought you might’ve liked it yourself. I admire your writings madam. And I also have a passion of writing myself and using big words and subjects that might cast a light on things in which most people may turn a blind eye towards. I wish you well and much luck in your future with literature madam.

  2. That was beautiful and a much needed read.
    Life is so chaotic right now with the definite lines separating people. It’s time for people to back away from the crazy of the world and reflect on themselves.
    Nolana, thank you for writing this. I’m gonna share it if you don’t mind.
    Again I say…you are so full of wisdom and inspiration.
