Most major accomplishments can be measured easily. You reach your goal, and then you have a big celebration! With inner peace, it’s a little harder to quantify when you’ve really achieved it. Since inner peace is a one-man-show, your “finish line” could manifest in a few different ways. Don’t let that get you down, though. There are a few telltale signs that you have achieved inner peace, and here are eight of them!
1. Lost interest in judging people
When you’re 100% content with who you are, you have no interest in judging others or comparing their lives to yours.
2. Less stress and worry
If you find yourself singing “Don’t worry, be happy,” you’re probably echoing your new mantra. It takes a lot to be stress-free, and one of the biggest contributors to this is having inner peace.
3. All smiles
The smile is a symbol of contentment, bliss, and happiness. It’s the motif of any calm, peaceful person’s life. The next time you catch yourself smiling, make a note of it so that you can remember the peace that you now have.
4. Saying “Thank you” more
Maybe you’re not actually saying the words, but you’re expressing gratitude and appreciation more than you usually do. People who don’t have inner peace lack gratitude because they can’t see the good in life. On the other hand, once you achieve inner peace, you’ll likely feel much more appreciative.
5. Hope beats fear
Rather than doubting the future and fearing what’s next, you’re hopeful. You can imagine the rest of your life as being filled with joy and love. Previously, you may have been afraid of what was ahead, and now, fear isn’t able to get a grip on you.
6. Love is in the air
Inner peace heightens feelings of love and compassion. It means you’re happy with who you are inside and out. In other words, you’ve learned how to love yourself. Once you love yourself, it’s easier to love everyone around you.
7. Cherish each moment
Your mind is wandering less, you’re not focused on the past or the future, and you’re taking each moment as it comes. These are among the many signs that you know how to cherish each moment in a peaceful state of being.
8. Willing to share
Less is more, right? With peace of mind comes a willingness to give more to others. It’s a sense of compassion and selfless love that comes with new-found contentment in life.
