"We have to make peace an attitude. then we have to make it a habit. Finally, we must decide to live peace, to share it around the world-not just talk about it.. Nobody ever got anywhere by sitting around, right?"
Mattie Stepanek, poet and philospher
Last year a friend lent me the most amazing book I have ever read - Messenger by Mattie Stepanek. The link is this http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss?url=search-alias%3Dstripbooks&field-keywords=mattie+stepanek&x=24&y=25.
I do believe that peace is possible - if we all change our attitude and realize that love is all we need and that focussing on the positive, even if I am accused of 'wearing rose tinted glasses', can make a difference we just all have to do it. I challenge you today to immediately turn any negative thought that comes into your mind into a positive one and see what happens.
Below are a couple of links that you might like to visit. I hope that my photo inspiration today will make a difference in somebody's life.
Have a wonderful day.
The hope of PEACE for everyone to live together in harmony and to respect and accept each other's diversity. To know that love is all you need...
Consider our legacy-how we hope to be remembered-what are we doing each day to make that a reality."-Mattie Stepanek in "JUST PEACE" book (AMP, 2006).
"We must always remember to play after every storm." That was his life philosophy
