SNV Daily Affirmation – Day 44, March 14


Day 44, Mar. 14:

Today, I treat all children with care, knowing that I serve as a model for them.

Too often we try to influence how children behave without being conscious of how we are behaving in the process.  So we yell at them to speak quietly, or we grab them to order them to treat others nicely, or we tell them not to touch something that we are holding.  Today, imagine that a child’s eyes are a mirror reflecting back your own behavior, and be sure you like what you see.

We learn to practice nonviolence one step at a time, one choice at a time, one day at a time.  This is how each of us, in our own way, moves the world in the direction of peace.  This is the Season for Nonviolence.

This is a part of 64 days of affirmations commemorating the Season for Nonviolence, the span of days between the deaths of Mahatma Gandhi and Martin Luther King, Jr.  These writings have been adapted from 64 Days and Ways to Practice Nonviolence by the Global New Thought Movement and Compassionate Activism for Global Healing by the Association for Global New Thought and added to by Tanya Mayer and Paul Friedman. They are grouped in 9 categories: nonviolence toward self, in close relationships, in my communication, in recreation, in my perspective of others, in daily living, in work, for mother earth and in our world.
