You have more power than you realize. When you step into your own authentic power, you not only change your life, but the lives of those around you.
The first step is to become aware of your thoughts and how you view your life and the world around you. During challenging times, we have to look closely at how we think and respond to different situations and world views. We can easily get drawn into other’s anger or negativity, and unjustly so. Let’s look at our own personal lives. Do we live in peaceful homes and are our relationships positive and filled with joy? Do we support friends, family members, and community agency? If we don’t have peace in our own hearts, in our homes, and in our communities, then we live in a turbulent world. Peace is possible, but we need to personally make the decision to become the peace we desire.
By making the choice to become part of the solution, and to promote peace, always starts with making the choice to take peaceful steps to become part of the solution instead of spreading anger, hatred or judgments. No one wants to live in a stress filled, emotionally charged environment. Make the choice to start with yourself and to take steps to make peace your priority this year. Begin with yourself, your relationships, your family, and your community.
It’s been a rough year. Let’s work together to make a positive difference. A simple random act of kindness can spread across the country. Pay it forward and keep it going. Make peace the goal!
