Peace in Me
Let there be peace on earth and let it begin with me.
My mom always told me if I can’t say something nice, say nothing at all. Of course there are several exceptions to this rule, but as a general idea if you can’t say something nice say nothing at all. I know that if might be redundant to say if you can’t be kind be quiet, but it feels a little different and warrants being said.
You don’t have to be religious to offer a pray. Because each and every word has a vibration, simply saying the words “let there be peace on earth, and let it begin with me” changes your vibration. Yes, a little shift is a big deal, you can be a part of the solution by taking stock in how you are showing up in the world.
A good cause could be bringing in your neighbors trash can, smiling and saying hello to someone on your morning walk, or being involved in a major fund raiser or service project. It all counts and shifts your energy, if we become like the people we spend time with give off some good vibes for those around you.
Five minutes (if it turns into more that’s okay!) Laugh and have fun. This is so good for your soul. Laughter has a significant impact on your hormone production, healing, and state of mind. Find your favorite song, turn it up loud dance and sing along. Currently several nights a week we crank up the music and have an after dinner dance party. We end up laughing, sharing time together, and I’ve gotta brag for a minute my kids have some pretty epic dance moves.
Choosing joy in moments of heartache doesn’t mean you are ignoring or have forgotten the pain, in means you are aware of how healthy it is to find harmony as you go through this journey of life.
