Around the holidays there is so much talk about peace, love and joy, and the words peace on earth are displayed on everything from greeting cards to our favorite Christmas songs. Have you ever wondered though if you can really have peace on earth?
First let’s talk about what having peace on earth really means. I believe that there will always be some sort of chaos around us, whether it be world issues, community challenges or even something closer to home. The fact is that no matter what is happening around you, you can have peace if you allow yourself to manifest it in your own life, everyday.
I am not talking about the “just feeling ok right now” kind of peace, but the wholeness, nothing missing, nothing broken sense of peace that can only come from looking within towards your faith, your love and your happiness. Don’t get stuck on the temporary things that might imitate peace, but instead search for the real and lasting things that will continue to bring you a wonderful sense of being calm, content and peaceful everyday.
So, the big question is...how can I get this peace and how can I keep it? I believe that peace comes from God, your faith, prayer, sacrifice, giving, serving, and ultimately living the beautiful life that you were given to the fullest. This is the time of year that we celebrate the Prince of Peace and I believe that we can have peace on earth, at least in our own little slice of it, if we ask for it, search for it, look within and pray.
Most of us have heard the song “Let There Be Peace On Earth” but if you pay attention to the words to that song you will see that it is all about where peace begins and that is with you! So, as we end another year, another Holiday Season and another decade, I wish you “real” peace, and a wonderful New Year of living your most beautifulife wherever you may be.
My affirmation for you this week is;
“I am looking within my heart to have peace in my life and no matter what things look like around me, I will remain calm and will carry on to live my beautifulife everyday.”
