Why wait for the International Day of Peace? Maybe we cannot influence those who are grabbing attention globally with their wars and destruction, but we can each make affect our relationships with the people we come into contact with on a daily basis.
Here are two suggestions for today (or any other if you care enough):
- For 24 hours you do not say anything negative about another person. If you can say something nice, say nothing.
- Think about the people you come into contact with regularly, on a daily or weekly basis. Pay particular attention to those you don’t like or don’t enjoy speaking to, the ones you neglect or don’t usually bother with. Take the initiative and heal any rifts you can.
- Perform a Random Act of Kindness (RAK) every day for the next week.
Even if we cannot directly affect world peace, we can ensure greater harmony with those in our world.
