The thought for today is HARMONY.
Choosing NOT to engage in any form of gossip today contributes to harmony. Choosing to see the good in others rather than finding fault leads to peaceful relationships. Look for the good in yourself and in others. By making these choices, we are contributing to a culture of nonviolence, we are being a model of peace.
Today: I will choose to see the good in others instead of finding fault. I will spend the entire day without criticizing anything or anyone; if I am tempted to criticize, I will write down the criticism rather than speaking it, then later discover where the criticism is coming from within me.

Think of someone important in your life. Is there anything you have been criticizing this person for? To create a soul relationship, release criticism. Create a loving message to convey to the other person your love and support. You might say something mentally such as, “I release my criticism of you. I accept you for who you are. I love, support, and acknowledge the good in you.” You might add, “I appreciate and love you for __________.” Think of as many things as you can to appreciate about this person. Recognize how far this person has come rather than focusing on how far he or she has to go. Search out the beauty and goodness within this person.
