Today’s forgiving journal: Finding the humor!

Today’s forgiving journal is about finding the humor!

I had a pretty bad day today.  My computer didn’t work.  My Skype broke down. I forgot about a meeting.  It’s hot in NY.  My toe is not in good shape.  Etc. 🙂

At one point, I just stopped and cried.  And then, when I was talking with dear friends, all of a sudden, I heard, “Find the humor.”

My spiritual teacher John-Roger says, “If it’s funny later, it’s funny now.”  That is one of my very favorite quotes from him, because it is SO TRUE (and sometimes quite annoying).  So I smiled.

Time for forgiving:

1 – Self-forgiveness: I forgive myself for judging myself for thinking that it is just too hard. I forgive myself for judging myself for feeling really lonely especially in NY.

Finding the Humor 2 July 22 20162 – Letting Go: I just let go of all this judgment, drama, punishment, and lack into the Light and I laugh.  A big one.  Like a snort even!  (It’s hard to stay upset when you snort)

3 – Gratitude: I am so grateful to have friends who remind me to tune into my own wisdom.  I am so grateful to continue looking for the brighter side.  And I am so grateful for smiles.


Moving to NY has not been easy for me in many ways.  The biggest thing I think is that I left a community of people I really love.  Coupled with a few other losses in my life.  So when I have a bad day, sometimes it triggers this larger sense of upset.

I am so aware of the strengthening this is bringing to me.  I am learning how solid I am in my loving.  I am learning how to bless wherever I go with love.  I am learning to be my own best friend and to fully engage in my life.  I am learning just how much I choose to live in loving, one breath at a time.

I love you.

  1. I agree Deb. It’s hard to stay upset when you snort AND it’s hard not to laugh when you snort while looking at the mirror! 😊 I love your pose-beautiful! Stay happy! ☺

  2. Hey Debbie, change is never easy and sometimes it’s hard to find the humor when we’re having a bad day but it never hurts to stop and take a step back. Look at the big picture and smile and laugh and appreciate the little things. Have a wonderful weekend. Hugs xo 🙂

  3. If you couldn’t already tell, I simply love humor! 😀

    Being able to find any little bit of humor in the most unlikely situations can be the difference between crashing or soaring. Always embrace the humor in life!

  4. Debbie…I relate to this so much. We lived in AK for 12 years. I had great friends there. I felt so connected. Since moving here to TX I feel extremely un-connected. I’ve not made any friends I would consider close. This is not without trying of course. I have Steve and my son and my fur-soul-mate Vivi (thank goodness for Vivi) but I miss my girl friends and the community i built there.
    I’ve been here for a long time…7 years…and it just isn’t happening. I’ve had to accept that for now, this is how it is. I hope this isn’t coming off as a pity party. I just wanted you to know that i get the disconnect. It sucks.

    Great big hugs and lots of love. ❤

    1. I get it Nikki! Thanks so much for sharing ❤ Funny, I've been thinking a lot of accepting what's so. It's quite a relieving process … just being present with what is, and being ok with that. 🙂 Anyway, I appreciate you a lot. Blessings.

      1. Oh good..I thought after hitting reply…wow Nikki, way to be helpful! 😉 I’m ok with things the way they are. I really have accepted it. I think I just miss my old life sometimes and that’s to be expected. ❤
