The Season of 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 affirmations for the following week.
Week Five, Feb. 27 through March 5
Feb. 27 FORGIVENESS There are more important things than remembering a hurt. Write a letter to forgive someone and move on with life. You do not have to mail the letter.
Feb. 28 AMENDS Make amends today. Apologize to someone you may have hurt and mean your apology sincerely.
Feb. 29 Ð A special “extra” day to create your own peace practice.
Mar. 1 PRAISING Appreciation helps people grow. Offer praise to at least 3 people today for their personal qualities, achievements or helpful service.
Mar. 2 PATIENCE When your plans seem delayed, choose to be patient by identifying at least 3 ways that you can constructively use this time to support your goal.
Mar. 3 ACKNOWLEDGMENT Tell someone today what a difference he or she has made in your life. Acknowledge that person for being there for you.
Mar. 4 LOVE “Nonviolence is based on the assumption that human nature…unfailingly responds to the advances of love.” – Gandhi. Focus on what you appreciate most about the person you like the least.
Mar. 5 UNDERSTANDING “When you understand, you cannot help but love. Practice looking at all living beings with the eyes of compassion.” – Thich Nhat Hanh. Send a silent thought of love to 10 people today. Share your experience with someone.
