It is very important to have a personal safe haven to go to from time to time. What is a personal safe haven? It is a place of refuge and comfort where you can go to reflect, to be renewed, to find peace, to let down your guard, to be calm, to find solitude. This can be a physical or mental place. Your safe haven can be anything you need it to be.
As you are considering what your safe haven might be, perform self-discovery with regard to what feeds your soul and what speaks to you.
Some examples of personal safe havens are:
• looking at a picture of a place that you enjoy
• touching a physical object that promotes positive thoughts
• listening to a song
• going to a meditation room
When you feel like the world is coming crashing in around you or when you just feel out of balance, retreat to your safe haven for 5-10 minutes. Refocus, reprioritize, and find your center. Then return to life.
If you go into any home décor store, you can usually find décor with the phrase Keep Calm and Carry On. Keep Calm and Carry On was the phrase on a motivational poster produced by the British government in 1939 after the start of WWII for the purpose of raising the morale of the British public in the aftermath of predicted mass air attacks on major cities. While the poster was never put on public display, it is now is a popular phrase displayed in many homes.
Sometimes I go to my personal safe haven to keep calm and carry on.

The essence of who you are does not lie in the past. What matters is what you are willing to do NOW. You are the presence.
