Be the peace you wish to see

This next month I will be participating in NanoWriMo for the first time and my blogging will take a back seat for a few weeks. I will try and blog once a week. So, be on the look out for that awesomeness.

 

Peace: What does peace mean to you?

All quiet, amicable, bloodless, calm, collected, composed, constant, easeful, equable, free from strife, gentle, harmonious, irenic, level, mellow, neutral, neutralist, non belligerent, nonviolent, on friendly terms, on good terms, pacifistic, peaceable, placatory, placid, quiet, restful, smooth, sociable, steady, still, tranquil, undisturbed, unruffled, untroubled, without hostility

How often do these words enter your day?

How often are these your actions?

How much of your day would change if at least once you were one of these things?

  1. Finding peace is one of the hardest things anyone can do, but easily one of the most rewarding. Thanks for reminding me to make it a priority. Good luck with NaNoWriMo! You are a brave, brave soul 😉

  2. Another blogger who is also undertaking the challenge that is NaNoWriMo! Good luck to you. 🙂 Peace, to me, is that comfortable silence you have only with close friends or family, where nobody feels the need to talk. When quiet can just prevail. Quite rare to find, really. I think I have more solitude in my day than peace, and often I’m not sure whether or not they’re the same thing.

  3. Good luck with NaNo WriNo! I am definitely pacifist and avoid confrontation. And I definitely find my life runs pretty smoothly because of that. Being kind to others and wearing a smile and a calm demeanor can do wonders!

  4. Peace is my middle name. Chaos is my childrens’ middle names. When they’re at school, Peace trumps Chaos. When they’re home, Chaos outnumbers Peace, and Peace goes into the back bedroom for some quiet.
