A reminder to forgive

I make it a point to consciously forgive of those who’ve wronged me and myself for all of the choices I’ve made that led me down a more difficult path. Forgiveness Fridays is my effort to encourage others to do the same, not just to feel better in the moment, but to improve their health in the process. Take a moment to consider the parts of your life that give you grief or unhappiness and then focus on what’s causing that pain. Try to let that go for at least a minute. Meditate. Pray. Do whatever it takes to relieve your body of that stress so that you can envision a life free of that burden. Take that with you each day and in time you’ll learn to forgive yourself as much as you do those around you.

Wishing you a happy and healthy Friday! 🙂

  1. Very true!! My favorite story of forgiveness is of Immaculee Iligabiza, a Rwandan genocide survivor who was able to forgive the men who killed her family. She wrote about it in her book “Left to Tell”. I was blessed to be able to see her at a conference and she is truly amazing. Forgiveness is a gift you give to yourself and the world!
    Thanks for the post!
