Peace on Earth

Baubles *Merry Christmas*“Peace is not merely a distant goal we seek, but a means by which we arrive at that goal” – Martin Luther King Jr

For those of you who celebrate Christmas tomorrow it is a day to reflect on peace. For those who do not celebrate Christmas it is still a worthy consideration.

Many people feel helpless and frustrated because they feel they are powerless to bring about peace on earth. If you believe there is some single act you can do to magically make peace on earth you will feel frustrated.

Let me suggest that the only person you can truly influence and control is yourself. You can bring peace to your family, your workplace, your community through your words and your actions.

Violence happens one person at a time. Each act of violence is a personal act by one person. Likewise, peace happens one person at a time. Your individual actions and words, though small in themselves, create a small ripple effect. If enough of us practice peace through our actions and our words we do the most powerful thing we can as individuals to bring peace on earth.

This holiday season consider your words and actions – do they promote peace on earth or do they feed into conflict and violence? If you can change yourself you have taken the first step toward bringing peace to all.

Wishing you peace this holiday season.

Wishing you well,
