Faith Friday: Walking in Peace With Those Who Haven't Found It

The mind 
                        can go in a thousand directions,
                                but on this beautiful path, 
I walk in peace. 
             With each step, 
the wind blows. 
             With each step, 
a flower blooms.”
                                         ― Thích Nhất Hạnh

I truly believe in the power of walking in peace. Everything we do has an impact on others. A thoughtful gesture can create ripples of kindness. But what others do has an impact on us too. How do we continue to walk in peace when those around us are not doing the same? Perhaps there is no simple answer but these verses come to mind:

"Seek Allah’s help with patient perseverance and prayer. It is indeed hard except for those who are humble, who are certain that they will meet their Lord and that they will return to Him." (2:45-46)

May we continue to walk in peace or at least, create a pathway of peace for others so they can use it when they are ready to do so. Jumaah mubarak everyone.

I really need this.

It's always hard for me to stay positive when I tried my best, and found many people around me trying to drag me down with their negativity.
