Season of Peace affirmations

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 Six, March 6 through 12

Mar. 6 MINDFULNESS Be aware of the motivation behind your action, the intention behind your words, and the needs and experiences of other people. By doing so, you are making life more beautiful for others.

Mar. 7 GRACIOUSNESS When you are out driving today, slow down and let the other car pull in front of you. Stop and let pedestrians cross the street. Hold the door open for someone else to enter first.

Mar. 8 KINDNESS Participate in random and senseless acts of kindness. Perform 3 acts of kindness today.

Mar. 9 DIALOGUE A healthy society is one in which those who disagree can do so with honor and respect for other people’s opinions. “Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others.” – Desiderata. Today, speak up but do not enter into the spirit of argument.

Mar. 10 UNITY Today, look for 3 ways to see beyond outer differences in opinions, appearances or goals. Find the meeting point of underlying unity that exists in diversity.

Mar. 11 OPENNESS “He who builds himself a fence, fences out more than he fences in.” (Turkish proverb) Today, be open to understanding ideas and people that you have previously opposed.

Mar. 12 ACCOUNTABILITY Today, take responsibility for how you contribute to a conflict and make a different choice that can lead to a peaceful resolution.
