Peace Perspective XLVI: To Do List

I had plenty of organization bonding on Instagram last week when my 2014-2015 planner came in the mail. When I read through this pin on Pinterest, I decided it could be considered a to-do list.

Peace Perspective To Do

Thinking Deeply isn’t too difficult for me. But as I’ve shared earlier in the month, Speaking Gently and Being Kind doesn’t come naturally in every situation. Last Sunday I found myself with friends and laughing more than I have in a long time. It felt good, especially because one of the friends I hadn’t spent much time with lately. Even with the changes in our lives, we were able to have a good time.

Working hard is important, and seems to happen on its own. Giving Freely sometimes needs a reminder. Its so easy to get caught in a cycle, or a rut, but if you stop and think about why you do something, you may get reinvigorated and find the joy in giving. If you aren’t reinvigorated, maybe its time to find some other way to give?

What on this list is easy for you? What is a struggle?


  1. I love this! I make an effort at each one. I would say the one I struggle with most is speaking kindly. I have a sarcastic side to me and sometimes I use it when I should just be gentle and kind.

    1. Sarcasm is always my first reaction too, while it can be funny, being kind is definitely something I would prefer.

  2. Laugh a lot = easy. Between my kids & my husband (not to mention friends) I feel like I laugh daily–or even hourly. Speak gently = harder. I loose my patience with my kids sometimes & with my husband more often. And when my patience is gone I do not speak gently. Working on that. 🙂
