Today’s forgiving journal: Looking for the good

Today’s forgiving journal is about looking for the good.

I was really struggling this morning. My mind wouldn’t leave me alone, I kept replaying a situation in my head regarding someone I cared deeply for.  At one point on my morning run, all of a sudden, I flashed on the immense good in this person.

It was truly beautiful….one of those magical moments in my life.  A milestone on the path of forgiving!

Looking for the good opened me in that moment to forgive, let go, and be grateful — with myself, this person, and the situation.  I feel so much love just thinking about it.

Just in case there’s more to forgive, I’m going to my forgiving journal:

1 – I forgive myself for judging myself for all the times I doubted the good in myself.  I forgive myself for judging myself for not seeing the good in other people.  I forgive myself for judging myself period!

2 – I let all of this go into this really cool, beautiful Light peace bowl, and I set it free.

3 – I am grateful for writing this journal.  I am grateful for knowing I don’t need the perfect words. I am grateful for this next breath.


There’s one more thing I’d like to do and that is to forget the judgment.  So that I may extend my love even more.  Right now, the best way I know to do this is to act as if it’s already done.  Wow, that’s freeing!

I love you.Hafiz 2 June 23 2016

  1. It all comes down to what we focus on, isn’t it Debbie. That’s so great for you that you were able to shift the focus to forgive. And I absolutely love the last quote too. Beautiful. xox
