|This little guy lives at a wolf sanctuary. Peacefully!|
Society lets us blame everyone around us for why that search has us come up empty handed, time and again. We are allowed to say things like: Well, my job sucks and so does my boss. So and so screwed me over and they got a promotion instead of me. I got hosed by the guy who cut me off in traffic. I have a friend who's being weird. Everyone is talking smack about me.
We all have that finger pointed out at every other circumstance and person we can find. They are our Peace Thieves, right? Are they?
It's part of the human condition to have frustrations and situations that we feel stuck in. Nobody is perfect--I sure know that I'm not!
What we all, myself included, should heed is that every time we point out at someone/thing as being the reason for our lack of peace--we are playing the role of a victim.
None of us need to be victims. We are all in this game called life, so right away that makes us victors.
|Because... Adorable, that's why!|
I have found, more often than not, that when I point my finger out in blame towards one of my Peace Thieves, that finger is best pointed at my own reflection in the mirror.
How we react to others is our greatest Peace Thief. We give into a knee jerk emotion about a situation and get pissy and frustrated.

So let's quit ripping ourselves off already and become peace givers, not thieves.
