January—1st B4Peace post, 2014

A date thingy? Ah! Calendar

January 2014
« Dec   Feb »


I’m a tad behind in starting this new year, and if I’m completely honest, my mind has been somewhere else altogether. So you can understand my surprise when I saw Kozo’s 1st post for the  banner movement of 2014. Here’s an introduction into his insight for the year:

Neuroscience tells us that “neurons that fire together wire together” which means that we actually change our brains by what we think. Changing our brains changes our thoughts, behaviors, habits, and destinies. – Kozo

So our first challenge for the year is to “post one thought that you will focus on this year. Call it a mantra, a resolution, a pebble in the pond of your consciousness that will send out ripples of peace throughout the year.” – Kozo

I chose the quotation above—“While there’s life there’s hope”—taken from the word “Endurance”.

Endurance stands for many things, and mostly used to describe times of hardship and adversity, but, I like these far better: a state of surviving; remaining alive; aliveness; animation; living; life. For surely, if there is life, there has to be hope?

I’m all for the idea of leaving the concept of “resolutions” behind as I stated many moons ago, I am not a person for making them. I am, however, all for the idea of creating a thought to be my companion for this year. Yes I have endured hardships and adversity throughout my life, who hasn’t. But if I’m to believe that endurance of hope is a worthwhile mantra to sustain me in the coming months, I must start with myself first.

Who knows, maybe by the end of the year it will have stuck and endurance has persevered. We can but hope.

Until next month, peace out people.

Don’t forget, though, to check out Kozo over at everydaygurus.com. Join the B4Peace movement and become a thread in the tapestry of his creation. Plus, if you stay with it for twelve months, you get to own a B4Peace t-shirt. How cool is that!

Here are a couple of excellent posts to get you going. Please check them out.

    It may be a short sentence, but it is so true and so powerful. 🙂

    Thanks for the pingback – I really appreciate it. Peace out to you, too.

  3. T shirt?! I didn’t know there was a T shirt! hahaha

    Anyway, very thoughtful post. I am new to the “movement” and appreciated your take on “endurance.” It resonates with me on many levels, so I will have to keep it in mind as well. Thanks for sharing. :>
