Thank you for joining me for my 7th installment of my word of the week. I hope that you are enjoying the word of the week and that you are drawing some inspiration from reading the post and thinking about the word i choose.
If you decide to write about the word of the week on your blog, please let me know. I really enjoy reading them and seeing some of the different thoughts that you have on the word of the week.
This week's word of the week is ~Peace~.
Peace is a word that is thrown around a lot these days. With all the turmoil that occurs in the world, the thought of peace helps us get through the bad days.
I think the most important form of peace is the peace we find within ourselves. Without this inner peace, nothing is possible. How do we find inner peace? I believe it is found through self-acceptance. Until we find peace with who we are and what we believe there will never be peace in our world or in our lives.
Accepting ourselves is hard to do. We are our own worse critic after all. We know ourselves so well, that we see all our faults and shortcomings much easier than other people. It is time to start reflecting more on what we can do and less on what we cannot do. We all have unique talents that no one else has. Sometimes we do not even know our talents until we try.
I believe that one way to find self-acceptance and ultimately peace within is to have confidence in ourselves. So, this is what I want you to do. List five talents or things you like about yourself. I would love to read them in your comments, but if you do not feel comfortable doing that list them for yourself. Put the list somewhere you can see it everyday and when you feel down or defeated, read the list. I think this will eventually lead to accepting ourselves and then to inner peace.
Here is my list...
1. I am a thoughtful person.
2. I am empathetic.
3. I am a good decorator.
4. I am a good writer.
5. I am a good, partner, puppy daddy, son, grandson, brother, uncle, friend,
Now it is your turn!
Thank you for visiting Yesterday Once More. As always, I appreciate you stopping by and I hope you will continue to come back as often as you can. Always remember, "Until you make peace with who you are, you'll never be content with what you have."
All My Best,
