If you are just tuning in, I am writing about some book marks that I made years ago and recently found. Catch up here.
Book Mark 3 – Practice Forgiveness
Wisdom from the book mark:
If you hold a grudge after a disagreement you will not feel peace inside of yourself.
If you react to the present based on things that have happened in the past, you will not feel peace inside of yourself.
If you are hard on yourself and the expectations for all that you do are so unrealistic and high, you will not feel peace inside of yourself.
Wisdom from me (or notes to self):
~stop holding grudges.
~stop forgiving but not forgetting.
~stop reacting. period. no good ever comes of it, ever.
~stop thinking that you can always do better, feel better, look better, be better.
~ start releasing the past.
~ start living in the present moment and make it the only moment.
~start breathing, pausing, and responding.
~start loving things exactly as they are – especially yourself.
Thank goodness we are all in this together. If you have any advice in the forgiveness arena, bring it on!
Thanks and love, Anita
