Today’s forgiving journal: Love love love love

Today’s forgiving journal is about love love love love.
 
I chose four “loves”, because four is my favorite number. And boy, the little girl inside of me (the one who loves 4!) needs an extra dose of loving today. So I gave it to her by…
 
*Walking in nature
*Going to a ministers’ meeting (I’m a Minister in an alternative spiritual org called MSIA)
*Doing a kind deed for a woman on the street
*Having a bagel when I was hungry
 
I really got this weekend, that I had gotten out of balance inside of myself. I haven’t been taking care of myself very well, and it feels horrible. Why I started doing self-forgiveness had a lot to do with being self-punishing and just plain being mean to myself. One great thing about my teensy relapse is that I realize how crappy it feels to get back into this self-criticalness.
 
So here I am, doing my forgiving process again:
Love Love Love Debbie May 22 20161 – Self-forgiveness: I forgive myself for judging myself for being so critical of myself and even for hating some aspects of myself. I forgive myself for judging myself as too unworthy to receive love. I forgive myself for judging myself for not taking care of myself.
2 – Letting Go: I let go of these old patterns of behavior into the Light. Humor helps. Here’s a joke: “What do you call cheese that isn’t yours? Answer: Nacho Cheese!” (OK I’ve used this one before, it’s one of the only jokes I know).
3 – Gratitude: I am grateful for the safe haven of my forgiving process. I am grateful for choosing once again in this moment to take care of myself. I am grateful for the ability to choose.

Today is a day I said, That’s enough. I “love love love love” myself, and I’m lining up my actions with loving all parts of me. And you know what? Where I am with all this is just fine. I really get that.
 
I love you.
Love,  
               Debbie

  1. Don’t worry too much about your teensy relapse, the main thing now is to look after yourself. Be kind to yourself, walking is nature is great, so is having a cup of tea and taking time out to just breath and appreciate all the little things. Hope your week ahead is happy Debbie. xo
