Peace is the absence of war.  Peace is the absence of chaos.  Peace is the absence of turmoil.  Peace is the absence of confusion.  Peace is the absence of disorder.  Peace is the absence of discord.  Peace is the absence of discontent.

Peace is the presence of harmony.  Peace is the presence of tranquility.  Peace is the presence of contentment.  Peace is the presence of serenity.  Peace is the presence of concord.  Peace is the presence of calm.  Peace is the presence of happiness.

You can't have peace of mind if you don't make peace with others.  Peace must occur within before it can occur on the outside.  You must be at peace with your past in order to move forward.  It's more important than your realize.  Peace is co-dependent with can't truly have one without the other.

It's beautiful to be you...simply beautiful.

There are some things in life that are earned, things that once you work hard enough for, you deserve.  Love, however, isn't one of those things. 

Love isn't for sale.  You can't buy it.  There is no thing or amount of work you can do to earn it.  There isn't a limit of what you could do for someone to deserve it.  Love is a's free.

Love was placed (by God) into the hearts of men (and women) to share and give freely to one another.  There is no prerequisite or criteria to be met in order to receive love.  The only criteria is for the giver - to love others as you love yourself.  Think again before you think/say a person isn't deserving of your love...if you are, then so are they.

It's beautiful to be you...simply beautiful.

Sometimes, as humans, we get emotional.  We cry.  We smile.  We yell.  We hurt.  We get sad.  We laugh.  We get happy.  We share those feelings with those around us or closest to us.  At times, those feelings are expressed in a way that others don't understand.

It isn't anyone else's responsibility to decipher or decode any puzzles or hidden meanings.  It's our responsibility, as rational beings, to be clear in what we say and do.  It isn't our responsibility to manage anyone's feelings about, or response to, what we say.  We must constantly strive to improve in all we do...including communication.  Say what you mean and mean what you say. 

Feelings and emotions have a great impact on how we communicate.  Think first and choose your words wisely...they can be used as weapons of destruction or as tools for building.

It's beautiful to be you...simply beautiful.
