Today’s forgiving journal is about not taking things so seriously.
Well, guess what? I took things way too seriously today!! My yogi tea bag this morning said, “The purpose of life is to enjoy every moment.” I had a feeling at that moment that this was going to be a tough day (i.e., I would need the reminder!)
Throughout the day, when I was feeling pressure …. or irritable …. or like I just didn’t want to go on … I reminded myself to enjoy every moment, and I did my very best. I am realizing how much of this life, when things get tough, is about just pausing and making a choice to look at things differently, and to just keep practicing that again and again.
Here’s a good time to say: I am so grateful to myself for practicing. I am really courageous, and I did it!
Time for my forgiving process:
1 – Self-forgiveness: I forgive myself for judging myself for feeling like I couldn’t keep it together today. I forgive myself for judging myself as a bad friend and an even worse coworker. I forgive myself for judging myself for feeling very dramatic and shameful about that.
2 – Letting Go: Oh BOY do I let all of this go to the living love presence that works with me, walks with me, accepts me, and loves me exactly as I am. And I let it go one more time just to be sure. 🙂
3 – Gratitude: I am so grateful for this forgiving process for always being a support for me. I am grateful for all the friends who called me today. I am grateful for one of my dearest friends who sounded so grateful that I called. Thanks for that.
You know, when life gets tough, that’s a great moment to say: “I choose to love.” And to forgive.
I love you! I am so grateful for all of you, our forgiving team (is that strange? I see it!!) …..
