Let’s talk about Peace ♥ #ForgivingFridays



Hey everyone, welcome back to my blog! Today I want to talk about a picture I saw a couple of days ago. I thought, let’s talk about it because yesterday was World Peace Day and I always think it’s nice to think about peace. I am also joining #ForgivingFridays, a platform Debbie from Forgiving Connect created for people to share their stories about forgiveness! So yes, today I’m joining a little bit. (after many many invitations from Debbie)



I saw this picture and I thought that I had to share it with you guys. I think you always have to chose for yourself, chose for your own peace. Of course, sometimes it might be important to think about others, but in the end, you always have to chose for yourself. For your own, inner peace.

I think this is a great quote to keep in mind if you are ever in a fight, or if someone disappointed you. I will definitely remember this one!

What do you think about this quote? Do you have any opinions on it? I’d love to hear what you think of peace, inner peace and if you knew that it was World Peace Day yesterday!

Also, make sure to check out today’s #ForgivingFridays on Debbie’s blog!

Have a lovely weekend!

xoxo, Anne ♥

  1. Oh Anne – you are so wise, do you know that? I just facilitated an event called “Acceptance and Peace”, and we talked about how peace is always present and that we are the ones who can choose peace inside at any time. YAY!!

    My spiritual teacher John-Roger has said that Love is the parent of peace. How beautiful is that?

    For me personally, I am aware that peace is something that I can keep choosing – you are so right on!! What I am learning is that peace is me.

    I love how you combined a quote on peace that is meaningful for you and shared your experience of it! That is so great.

    Feel free to contribute to #ForgivingFridays anytime, Anne — you have an open invitation.
    It will be an honor to post your sharing when I get back from vacation (my next one is mid October). Much loving to you,


    ps – Mother Teresa has a great quote on peace, “Peace begins with a smile.”

    1. Thank you so much for your meaningful reaction on my blogpost Debbie. I’m so happy I had finally some inspiration to join a Forgiving Fridays! I think your teacher John-Roger is totally right. I think love is also the beginning or parent of peace. I think, without love, you can’t have peace. But I also think, without peace, you can’t have love.

      I wish you a wonderful time on your holiday and I’d love to hear all about it when you’re back. I will definitely keep following your facebook and instagram to stay updated on your life.

      And thank you for sharing that quote by Mother Teresa. I’m definitely writing it down to remember!

      Love and hugs, Anne ♥

  2. Wow ! That quote is brilliant !!! I will be pinning that to my pinterest board. That is a quote that needs to remembered.
    I was aware of World Peace Day.
    It is important to forgive, and as you say…for oneself really. Sometimes it is okay to be a little selfish. Life is all about choices, and if we do not want to be sad anymore, and forgiving the other person will help with creating peace within oneself, then that is what needs to be done. If not done, depending on the circumstances , the mind plays tricks, resentment filters in, and before one knows it, a relationship is destroyed.
    Fantastic quote Anne, thank you. Have a lovely weekend. 🙂 x

    1. Ahw, Lynne. I love that we share the same opinion about his subject/these subjects! I think it’s really important to think about your own peace and think about yourself while you want to forgive somebody. I had a lovely weekend, how was yours? xo

  3. Forgiving another person is such a powerful thing, and as hard as it is to forgive those who’ve done you wrong, I think there’s something so beautiful about letting it go. For me, I personally would rather not hold that unnecessary burden and anger in my heart. I’d rather make room for those I cherish and love. It definitely leaves me with inner peace knowing I can let something go that no longer needs to be held there. Beautiful post for some thoughtful reflection Anne!!

    xo, JJ

    1. I totally have the same opinion about that. I don’t want to feel anger, while I can be feeling happy. I always say to myself, you can forgive someone, but you don’t have to forget what they’ve done. I’m glad you shared your opinion on this subject with me, Jenny! xo
