Today’s forgiveness blog is about taking good care.
I had a friend tell me today that I was moving slowly and that I was doing great. I realized that with everything that’s gone on lately, I’d been moving more slowly than I normally do as a way to take good care. She saw this, and I’m so grateful for her helping me to see it!!
I am looking at the mirror and saying to my reflection, “I am loveable exactly as I am.” I’m doing my best to eat well, although I’m still working on that one. Each morning and most evenings, I am saying my newest affirmation, “I am love.” And I’ve just taken to asking myself the question, “How can I choose love right now?” This is taking good care.
What I’m aware of is that when I take good care, I’m more available to forgiving myself. I used to think it was the other way around…that if I just judged myself enough, I’d push myself into forgiveness. Or something like that. Now, as I write this, I get that forgiving is easier when I am for-giving to myself.
I forgive myself for judging myself for all the times I punished myself to get to forgiveness. I forgive myself for judging that forgiveness is a place to go. I let it go to God and am grateful for the lessons.
Blessings to us all – and I’d love to hear your tips for taking care of yourself!!
I love you. J
