Peace rules my daily thoughts and actions.

Each night I meditate on achieving peace. This practice helps me to construct my thoughts and actions with a serene outcome in mind.

I like to put myself in the other person’s shoes. Doing this helps me to understand their point of view and structure my interactions accordingly. I am better able to have constructive relations when I take this approach.

I focus on taking the harmonious route when dealing with all situations. Even when there are disagreements, I am sure to remain respectful so peace can prevail.

When someone confronts me with an angry disposition, I remain calm. It is easy to allow their method to dictate my reaction, but I remain positive. By reminding myself about my mission of peace, I am able to respond constructively.

Life throws curveballs at times that sometimes dampen my spirit. But I avoid remaining in the dumps for too long.

It is pointless to dwell on the hurt of situations that I am unable to control. Focusing on the negative aspects of my circumstances affects my peace, so I avoid doing it. Instead, I accept what is in front of me and move on.

I recognize that I have little control over what happens to me. But I have control over what I choose to think, say, and do. I choose peace.

Today, I live a happy life because I commit to a serene existence.
