Each month, I ask myself, “How do I promote peace?”
The topic of “world peace” seems so broad and intimidating. It really does not have to be unless we let it seem so daunting that we are unable to grasp its true meaning. Do not look at the broad picture only. Keep carving the meaning of peace down until you have something that you can hold on to that helps you define what peace truly means to you.
This month, I want to promote peace through the kindness of ourselves and how we act toward other people. Kindness in words is a big deal to me. You can destroy a person with only a few words. We in the WordPress blogging community are actually quite kind to each other, offering inspiration, hope, and a sense of caring. Great.
Now, how do you treat the members of your family?
In my opinion, peace in a family is attainable by recognizing that each person brings something unique to the family unit. We are not all alike by any means. Just because our genes are shared within a family does not mean that we are all the same. Our differences make us human and loveable. When judgments or perceptions against each other are shelved and forgotten, that is when peace silently slips into your home. You do not even notice until you sense the quiet.
Peace obtained through kindness is an easy task. Say, “please,” and “thank you,” to each other. Mind your snarky/funny comments by keeping them in perspective so that you do not do more harm than good to your family members. Take responsibility for your actions and do not blame others for your own mistakes.
Create peace in your family by loving each other – flaws and all. Be willing to change. That is the key.
