Today’s forgiving blog: Taking good care

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

Love, Debbie
