Lighten the load and keep moving forward ♡☆

Good morning ♡

What does forgiveness mean to you? How do you practice it? Is it limited to people you know? Is it offered to anyone who wrongs you, or are you prone to hold the grudge? One thing about forgiving someone that has upset or hurt us is that it doesn’t mean we now give them permission to do it again. Instead, it allows us to acknowlege the humanness in them, and within ourselves, that we too make mistakes and do things that rub others the wrong way. This is one way of practicing unconditional love of self, to love yourself enough to let go of what another person has done and move forward with the knowledge of how to either reconcile and continue to grow together, or to now leave that friendship behind and live on. But always remember this: time waits on no one, so if you think you have a lot time to make it right with someone or even with yourself, you may not. So take the chance and give the gift of forgiveness. After all, you get what you give. Love yourself & be yourself. Peace & Love ♡ ☆

Action : Think of a time when you had a hard time forgiving someone in your life. Now think of a time where you thought you would never have been forgiven. Compare and contrast the two now. Is there much difference at the core of the situations? And regardless of the list, close your eyes and make a concious decision to apply forgiveness to that situation. And forgive yourself too ♡

Quote: “Sincere forgiveness isn’t colored with expectations that the other person apologize or change. Don’t worry whether or not they finally understand you. Love them and release them. Life feeds back truth to people in its own way and time-just like it does for you and me.” – Sara Paddison
