Easier Said Than Done


When confronted with conflict, we can choose to feel peace. 

When attacked in any way, we can make the decision not to fight.

We can come from a place of restraint and 
not act out in any hostile way, 
even if we want to. 

We do not have to act out our thoughts or emotions. 

We can pause and wait 
until we can come from our volition, 
from our choice.

We can 
choose peace.

Today we can wait until all negative and hostile feelings lose their power over us before we say or do anything. We can take the time to breathe in peace and love, no matter what is going on in our lives.
