I set out to be an agent of peaceful change in my world. This helps to counter the effects of any existing violence and discord. I strive to be a mediator of peace, starting within the walls of my home, and extending to my everyday interactions with strangers.
With passionate resolve, I am determined to spread serenity wherever I go. There is always room for respectful discussions and differing points of view, but maintaining a peaceful atmosphere is the right thing to do.
To infuse harmony into my surroundings, I begin by thinking peaceful thoughts.
I see everyone for who they want to be, not who they appear to be. Instead of judging people by their everyday mistakes or shortcomings, I use my inner vision to see people for who they intend to be in their hearts.
I refrain from listening to negative and critical media so I can overcome any innate negativity and exude an optimistic personality. By carrying myself peacefully, I cause others to respond peacefully to me. My actions start a chain of serene attitudes all around me.
Even when I have been wronged, I steer clear of anger so I can manage my emotions responsibly. I give others the benefit of the doubt before jumping to any judgments or conclusions.
Regardless of the situation, my goal is to find common ground. I take the feelings of others into account in everything I say and do because, ultimately, my relationships with people matter most.
Today, I choose to spread peace around the world, beginning with my own home. I focus on solutions rather than constraints and express myself with gentleness.
1. How can I be more optimistic?
2. How does it benefit me to focus on solutions rather than circumstances?
3. Are my innermost thoughts peaceful?
