Today’s forgiving journal: Welcoming Myself Home

Today’s forgiving journal is about welcoming myself home.

I participate in Frank’s photo challenge (it’s awesome!). Today’s focus is orange.  I thought, “Oh that’s easy, I love orange!”  Then I ended up taking a picture of something that I had no idea WHY I was taking it – a photo of a subway sign.

Supporting Myself Home

Well, I sat with it.  What came evident to me is that the “B” subway – first one of the orange line – is the subway I take home.   It is the train that stands out for me, and the rest become less important.  This is the choice I made when I moved from LA to Brooklyn.

I used to be so scared of my choices, like “Oh God I’m going to make a wrong decision.”  Where I am now is, “Hey, let’s try this train and see how it goes.  I trust myself.”  Wow, I have really grown!

And in case there’s more…let’s forgive (practice is a good thing):

1 – Self-forgiveness: I forgive myself for judging myself for not trusting in my choices.  I forgive myself for judging myself for not supporting myself inside no matter what!

2 – Letting go: I let all this judgment and any residues go into the Light and I give myself a BIG HUG WELCOME HOME!

3 – Gratitude: I am grateful for how I put up reminders of how I support myself.  I am grateful to be making the best choices I know.  I am grateful that I am home right now.


I kept looking for orange to write up this blog.  As I was coming into my door, I saw the photo card that I put there, “Home Sweet Home”.  With numerous shades of orange. 🙂

Supporting Myself Home 2 July 24 2016

Well, I don’t know if this made a whole lot of sense to anyone (even to me).  What I do know is that I am so touched how much I am supporting myself in my choices and welcoming myself into them. This is love.

I love you.

    1. Oh thank you Miriam. Home has been a theme throughout my life, as has welcoming myself to it. I love the way you comment on my posts. There’s such a welcoming and warmth to your words and your presence. Bless you Miriam. 🙂


  1. Perfect timing for me, Debbie, as I buy my first own home and welcome myself into it. I am planning a Home Blessing in August, combined with a chant and dedication of gratitude to my family who makes it possible. Yeah! Loving you home, Anne

  2. Who dares wins!

    In my younger days I never feared heading off in new directions. Lately I’ve been reflecting on this and how, with more years accumulated, I’ve become more hesitant with my decisions. Thanks for this great realization and reminder.
