Peace within self or an inner calmness may be created and sustained by caring for self at a deep level, committing to an inner journey, and by dedication to maintaining a practice of self-care. Suggestions for creating and sustaining peace within self, using the model “Listen, Envision and Take Action” (LET or allow), are explored as a guide to support and maintain an inner journey. The authors describe how a peaceful presence may guide the journey of nursing leadership. Along the path of self-care focused on the inner journey, the nursing leader may experience enhanced health, self-knowledge, resilience, and a transformation of relationships personally and professionally. As nursing leaders' role model care for self in the workplace, the organization may experience an increase in nurse satisfaction.
