Inner Peace

This was in an email from the FlyLady this morning. Apparently the author is anonymous, so I can't give proper credit, but I just loved it so much I wanted to share it.


1. Tendency to think and act spontaneously, rather than from fears based on past experiences.
2. An unmistakeable ability to enjoy each moment.
3. Loss of interest in judging self.
4. Loss of interest in judging others.
5. Loss of interest in conflict and one-upmanship.
6. Loss of interest in interpreting actions of worry.
7. Loss of ability to worry (This is a SERIOUS symptom!).
8. Frequent, overwhelming episodes of appreciation.
9. Feelings of contentment and connectedness with others and with Nature.
10. Frequent attacks of smiling.
11. Increased susceptibility to love and to "passing it forward."
12. Increased tendency to let things happen rather than make things happen.

NOTE: If you have all or even most of the above symptoms, your condition of Inner Peace may be so far advanced as to be untreatable!



  1. Oh my gosh, I LOVE THIS! I am keeping this under my belt on my little journey. Thank you for sharing. :)

  2. Oh my WORD ... I love this too! I'm going to print this out. Glad I ran into your blog today! I think I'll follow :)

  3. I'm so glad that you both like it! I thought it was brilliant - wish I had thought of it first :)

  4. I LOVE this! It is fabulous! I suffer from some of these symptoms, wish I had more of them :)

  5. Hi there, just wanted to say thank you for your kind comment about my blanket.
    I've been browsing your blog and was very interested to read about the Sweet Poison book. I've just this week started to cut down on the amount of sugar in my diet and already feel so much better, it's a shame someone else has already beaten me to writing the book though, haha!

  6. I have been in therapy the past year to help with my anxiety. Reading this list made me realise what a long way I've come in terms of managing it and gaining inner peace in the process. Thanks x

  7. I'd quite happily suffer from that malaise!
