Welcome in the holiday season!
Joy to the world and carols around the fire and mistletoe…
Family drama from years past and arguments in the kitchen and exhaustion
Whew! What an emotional rollercoaster the holidays can be.
I am proposing a new kind of holiday…
One of forgiveness and love and calm
We usually think of feeling gratitude and forgiveness around Thanksgiving,
But I say let’s make it our priority EVERYDAY!
What a world it would be if we each took time daily to reflect on what we are grateful for and forgive (especially ourselves!)
Each person is doing the best we can with the knowledge we have in that moment….when we know better, we do better. Every individual that comes into your life is there to teach you something. Forgiveness is not saying it is ok….it is simply saying you are open to ‘getting’ the lesson.
So let’s learn from past mistakes and forgive someone today, you would want to be forgiven for your mistakes right?
Besides, the only person a grudge hurts is you.
Who do you need to forgive today?
Notice the shift.
