The Season for Peace and Nonviolence is an annual celebration of peace that has been recognized worldwide since 1998. The season lasts 64 days, from Jan. 30 through April 4. Each Friday the Tahoe Daily Tribune will publish the daily affirmation for the following week.
Week Four, Days 20-26
Feb. 20 MISSION “My life is my message” – Gandhi. Write down what you want to “stand for” in your life. Note at least one way you can show through action that you stand for your beliefs. Take this action today.
Feb. 21 PRAYER “Prayer from the heart can achieve what nothing else in the world can,” said Gandhi. Begin and end the day with a prayer for peace. Let peace begin with you.
Feb. 22 HARMONY Today, choose to see the good in others rather than finding fault. Choosing not to engage in any form of gossip contributes to harmony.
Feb. 23 FRIENDLINESS Will Rogers said that strangers were just friends he hadn’t met yet. View those you encounter today as friends. Make a new acquaintance.
Feb. 24 RESPECT Today, respect yourself and others by choosing not to use any profanity or “put-downs.”
Feb. 25 GENEROSITY “There is a hidden poverty more pervasive than lack of money. It is the poverty of the heart.”- Mother Teresa. Spend 10 minutes assisting someone who needs your nurturing.
Feb. 26 LISTENING Today, stop what you are doing and take 5 minutes to listen to the feelings behind someone’s words to you. Be fully present for the conversation and show interest in what the person is saying.
