If I could share 500 words to inspire, this is the important wisdom I'd want to pass along to others...
The peace that you wish to experience in your life begins with you. Make a conscious effort to see through the eyes of others. Instead of judging them, try to fully understand what they are going through and why they do certain things. While it may seem that the main purpose of seeing through the eyes of others is to please everyone else, it really is to obtain peace within yourself.
Remember to tell your loved ones how much they mean to you, and how your life is better because of them. They may not know how you feel, and you will have made their day.
Forgive those who may have hurt you. Even if you don’t want to do it for them, then do it for yourself. As the saying goes, “It’s not the snake bite that kills you. It’s the venom that’s left behind!”
Ask forgiveness from those you may have offended. Tell them why you did what you did and that you never meant to harm them. Take responsibility for your actions.
Remember to treat yourself with the respect that you deserve too – because you are just as important as everyone else. Stand up for yourself, and don’t depend on someone else to do it for you. As soon as you get up in the morning, ask how you can create the perfect day for yourself. Then follow up with whatever needs to be done to make that happen.
Life is full of distractions that may shift your attention to what you don’t want instead of what you do want. It is during the most difficult times that you must try to stay focused on your peaceful intentions. You may have to force yourself to see and feel beyond what is going on outside of yourself in order to feel the serenity within.
By trying to see everything through loving eyes, your whole life will change for the better. You are the only one who can break away from bad thoughts and see the bright side of every situation. Remember, the key is to focus more about what you do want, which is love and peace, instead of what you don’t want, which is unhappiness and fear.
It will not always be easy, and at times you may feel that you won’t be able to continue to be kind and serene. However, if your intention is pure, you should eventually figure out how to obtain peace in every situation.
You really can make a difference in your life and in the lives of others simply by viewing everything from this higher perspective. When you remember to love yourself and others unconditionally, you will be vibrating at a much higher level. It is at this point that you will be able to create peace in your life and in the world around you. This will also begin the ripple effect that could actually make the whole world a better place! And how wonderful is that?
Many blessings to you!
