Yesterday was the International Day of Peace. I spent the day meditating on the idea of peace around the world and sending positive vibes into the universe. Sometimes it feels like one person can’t make much of a difference, especially with the amount of turmoil in the world. But I think each person can affect change. And with so many people doing so on this one day… imagine if the same people, and then others, and then even more, did something to affect change every day?
Now I don’t think everybody should work for the government and travel abroad to broker peace deals. But we can be aware and support charities that help in the ways we appreciate and vote for people to do the diplomacy on our behalf.
And there are things everybody can do, every day. It ripples you know. At least I believe it does.
Did you smile at people today? Engage them in conversation, even if it’s just hello/how are you? Did you do what you could to promote kindness? Did you avoid looking for things to be offended by?
Every bit helps. 🙂
One person can make a difference. Lots of “one person”s can make a lot of difference.
Peace to you!
