Well, I can certainly tell you what It’s not! Peace is not being brashly serenaded by all the the violence and war that constantly sweeps the covers of newspapers and becomes one of the main focal points in politics. Have you ever turned on the news and found a smile on your face shortly after? If so, I’d love to know what channel you’re watching!
We’re constantly being updated on current events whether we ask for it or not. Whether it be social media, friends, or family. You just can’t get away from this conundrum of a world we live in. It can be such a dark, morose, lonely place that’s desperately craving for something with substance. Anything to hold onto besides the dreams and aspirations of broken and hurting people. I believe this world needs many things, but we most definitely need peace. But how do we get there? If you’re reading this right now, I hope that somehow you experience even a speckle of peace knowing that you matter, even if it’s coming from a stranger like me.
If you had to think of three words to describe peace, what would they be? Personally, I think of being still. Not thinking about the mistakes I’ve made and will make tomorrow, yesterday, or even ten years ago. Sometimes you have to dig deep inside of yourself to remember all of the goodness and treasured times you’ve had on this earth so far. It’s not always easy, but it could encourage and promote peace in your soul. Another one for me would be music. God, I could listen for hours (and I do!) because there’s something about connecting with art that someone else created; that’s such a beautiful thing. Lastly, my third would be my faith. Where would we be if we had nothing to live for? Who would we be? What would be the point of living at all?
The reason I’m writing about this today is because I’ve recently discovered that the more days that are added to our lives, the harder it is to reach out and rekindle that childlike faith that we may have had once for a better world. A world where peace and love transcend any negative feeling or reality no matter what the circumstance. I know that’s a long shot, but even something as simple as entertaining the idea sounds peaceful to me. I hope you find it today in your heart, however it comes through for you.
Hi guys! It’s been such a long time since I’ve written on this blog, and it feels so good to be back! It’s been heavy on my mind and I feel super lead to start writing again, and who am I to neglect a passion anyway? Life sure has a way of seamlessly pulling you in so many different directions whether it be physically, mentally, emotionally, or spiritually; but alas, sometimes we come back to the things we can’t stop thinking about. Writing is definitely one of my things! 🙂
