Today’s forgiving journal is about owning my gifts.
I went to a networking breakfast this morning. Afterward, I spoke with a lovely young intern, who asked me what I did. I told her about my forgiving center idea, and she asked if I teach people to forgive.
I quickly replied that I don’t teach people, that each of us has all the wisdom we need to forgive. I just provide information, tools, and a loving space to help us along the way. Forgiving comes from within.
As I was leaving, I happened upon the moderator, a gifted woman from a well-known NYC media station. We spoke about my story on forgiving. I gave her my card, and she said she’d check it out when she got back to the office.
I walked away and started crying. I was so moved to express the gifts inside of me. I am willing to shout about forgiving from the rooftops, or from a NY media station 🙂 . I am aware that I didn’t think I was good enough to do this. It is not true – I AM good enough to do this.
Time for my forgiving process:
1 – Self-forgiveness: I forgive myself for judging myself for denying my own gifts.
2 – Letting go: I let go of any and all limiting beliefs that hold me back from expressing my heart.
3 – Gratitude: I am grateful for my gift of connecting with people. I am grateful for my gift of compassion. I am grateful for my willingness to stand in my strength.
I’ve heard someone say, “When the student is ready, the teacher appears.”
Well, I truly believe that we are each our own teachers, and I am ready to share how my heart lives.
I love you.
