64 Ways in 64 Days – 15th Gandhi, King, Chavez Season for Peace and Nonviolence
Week three, Days 15 to 21: Being kind to ourselves can soon be turned into a practice of peacefulness toward others. Try it.
- Day 15 – REVERENCE (Feb. 13)
Did you ever see something that took your breath away? Today we focus on how beautiful our world is, and how beautiful we are. Let’s not focus on the negative.
- Day 16 – GRATITUDE (Feb. 14)
Life is a gift. Give thanks to the people and situations in your life. Make a list of all you are grateful for.
- Day 17 – INTEGRITY (Feb. 15)
Integrity is doing what you know is right, even if no one is around. Having integrity makes you feel better about yourself, because you always do what you know is right. Think of a time when you had integrity, and think of a time when you wish you had.
- Day 18 – FREEDOM (Feb. 16)
Bishop Desmond Tutu once said, “When people decide to be free, there is nothing that can stop them.” Today let yourself be who you are and don’t allow anyone to influence you differently.
- Day 19 – ACCEPTANCE (Feb. 17)
Today is a day to accept yourself just as you are. You are on this planet to do something no one has ever done before. Try your best to accept and approve of yourself and others. Let go of the need to judge. Know that everything in your life is unfolding perfectly.
- Day 20 – SELF-FORGIVENESS (Feb. 18)
You are greater than any mistake you have ever made. What are some of the things you have done to upset yourself? If you think it would help, write an apology letter to yourself for everything you have ever done that you wish you hadn’t. When you are done, take the letter outside, and burn it. As you watch it go up in flames, consciously release your guilt and frustration with yourself, and know that you are forgiven.
- Day 21 – INSPIRATION (Feb. 19)
Think about somebody who inspires you to be a better person. What are some of the things they do? Think of ways that you can inspire others in your life. How can you lead by example and be an inspiration to others?
