One Week 'Til BlogBlast For Peace NOV 4th

Peace and love enlarge our relationships. If you can understand the motives and intents of another, you can love them, forgive them, and be at peace with them. You will have no room for hatred, judgement or malice. It’s not about how they react or reciprocate, even whether or not they respond, but about how the change occurs within you. 
One person at a time.
Words are powerful…this matters.

30 Days of Love

Michelle Frost ~ Scotland


Oct 4 – Nov 4

Within the span of one’s life there are those who walk the path with us – guiding, teaching, holding our hands. They shape our destinies with unconditional love. My Papa was that person for me. Who is your person?

Here’s my challenge: Post one loving act or thought each day that answers the questions… Who inspires you to love? What inspires you to love? What love did you witness today? Write it down and share it with us. At the end of 30 days we’ll be ready to Blog 4 Peace on Nov 4th. You’ll be all the more peaceful for noticing the love along the way. Join us.

Bloggers participating in the #30DaysofLove Challenge will have their daily contributions housed on this page. Please tag Mimi Lenox on FB if that is where you are posting yours so that I can find them.  Adding continually….

Day 1 ~ Oct 4:
From Michelle Frost in Scotland ~ “Who Is Your Person?”

Who is my person? Who is the person that inspires me to love?
I have more than one person that fills that role and can’t name them all but the main one is God. God has blessed me with so much room in my heart to love others and give to others. I thank Him daily for everybody and everything in my life. Without Him I wouldn’t be here and I wouldn’t be able to share this post 📮 with all my family and friends. The second main person has to remain anonymous because it would take forever to explain why I even have this person in my life but this person taught me what real love is, how to express it, and how to use it. This anonymous person is always helping others and doing good things although they’ve not always had a good life because of heartless people and has experienced a lot of pain but no matter what this person has always reached out to others. Another person would have to be my Mama. Mama gives freely and loves freely and she’s always been there for me and raised me to love and respect others. Then my Daddy who I look like, act like in some ways and who has always helped me any way he could. Next is my ‪#‎bff‬ Angela Allen who has been my friend since third grade. Angie is the epitome of friendship and love . She’s always helped me and been there for me and I’m blessed to have her in my life. After Angie would have to be my wonderful husband, John Edward Matthews who has shown me and given me his unconditional love since the first time he said those 3 little words. Then comes my extended family 👪 and friends who always are there for me with a hug or kind words or even a smile and who aren’t afraid of sending me a text or calling me. I also have to say that all of my grandparents were my person too because they showered me with kisses 💋 and love too. So I have more than one person. Who is your person?

When Baby Boy was four, I asked him to examine them with his trusty magnifying glass.
I handed the marbles to him without saying a word.
After some time of careful inspection and thought, he looked at me with all the seriousness of a 4-year-old rocket scientist and announced, “They’re spirit rocks.”

Take The 30 Days of Love Challenge!

 The 30 Day Countdown to BlogBlast 4 Peace begins! Blog4Peace 2015 is Nov 4!
Here’s my challenge to you.

As we previously announced here, our theme this year is Peace and The Power of Love.
I challenge you to write down at least one loving act or thought each day and post it.  Copy the graphic at left and display it with your posts. That’s easy!

 We change the molecular atmosphere around us many times each day by giving away the best of who we are and keeping the energy positively charged around us. We all do much more than we give ourselves credit for. Being loving brings peace to our circumstances, peace within our relationships, peace in our neighborhoods, peace to the world.

The Peace and The Power of Love Challenge ~ For the next 30 days from Oct 4 – Nov 4 ~ let’s be present for love.  Let’s consciously and with purpose and intent NOTICE the ways we express love to one another and then AFFIRM the peace it brings into our lives. Let’s record it. Write it down. And share our findings with each other. It may be in the way you cook a special meal for someone (or an ordinary everyday meal!), the way you play with your pets, starting your spouse’s car on a cold morning, really listening to someone’s problems, or simply saying a kind word to a stranger on the street.

 
 There are no small ways to love.

  I’m willing to bet that if we consciously attend to those moments and record them in our minds (and on our pages, too) we’ll begin to understand more fully how acting on the love we feel for each other and our planet makes us more peaceful people. I’m willing to wager also that deliberate acts of love and kindness toward those we don’t get along with, will bring even more significant peaceful change to ourselves and our world.

Why do I believe this? 
Because after nine years of peace blogging, I know you. I believe in you. I believe in us. I believe in the collective power of positive intent within this community. You have shown time and again what lengths you are willing to go in order to manifest peace during peace season and all through the year. All you have to do is read the thousands of posts HERE on the Official Site to believe in peace globes. Once a peace blogger, always a peace blogger. The movement has changed me and how I look at the world. It is not what I did. It is what WE did. 

Because we share a common thread of desire to become more peaceful people, we are becoming more peaceful and loving. I see it and feel it. 

I’m going to begin my peace blogging challenge this year by answering this question…..

Who is your person?
Who is the one person in my life who inspires me to love?
 Day 1 of the 30 Days of Love Challenge will be devoted to my grandfather

Who is YOUR person?
 


Peace and Love are not just worn out hippie phrases. They work interchangeably.
They incorporate the powerful concept of forgiveness and grace. 

 Peace and love encompass and ignite the gift of mercy within us. They teach us to look intimately into each other – not at each other – with the eyes of humanity. For we are all human.  

Peace and love enlarge our relationships. If you can understand the motivations and intents of another, you can love them, forgive them, and be at peace with them. You will have no room for hatred, judgement, or malice. It’s not about how they react or reciprocate,, even whether they respond or not, but about how the change occurs within you

Peace and love call for a laying down of arms. If you can change your weaponry to an arsenal of compassion, you will walk with a new knowledge, forged from a new vision, and those who are not yet at peace with you will see it and feel it. Making peace with someone is the same thing as offering love.  
 Change will come in your life.  If enough of us see the need for this kind of inward focus and walk compassion instead of hate, change will come to all of us.
 Change will come to the planet.
So, this year I ask that you examine the way you interact with the people around you. Is it loving? Is it peaceful? Is it quiet? Is it meaningful? Is it for their good and yours? Is it fused with compassion? Are your motives pure? Does it serve the world? Are you happy and fulfilled in the circle where you abide? If not, what can you do or say to make it better? Take the 30 Day Love ChallengeGo!
