Today’s forgiving journal: Going for what we want…and forgiving

Today’s forgiving journal is about going for what we want….and forgiving.

Have any of you ever had a block to knowing what you want?  I do!  In fact, I often am much better at determining steps to take to get what I want (such as forgiveness) without necessarily knowing what I actually want!  Hey, it’s a start, right?  🙂

Today, I became aware that I want to write a book.  It’s a book of forgiving blog posts, plus some poetry, plus some open empty space to see what my creativity brings in.

The thing is, I remember being a kid and thinking I am powerless to get what I want.  Just to say that it’s not been easy for me to stand up and say YES for myself.

Before I forgive, I have one more thing to say.  That is, I see my little girl inside.  The fact that she’s showing herself to me means that she trusts me.  I commit myself to being worthy of her trust.  I love you.

Time for forgiving:

going-for-what-we-want-and-forgiving-oct-16-20161 – I forgive myself for judging myself for denying that there is a little girl inside of me that sometimes feels hurt.  I forgive myself for judging that it is shameful to put it out there what I want.

2 – I let go with a resounding YES!  🙂  I choose to love myself and share my love with others too!

3 – I am grateful for all the teachers that I have in my life.  You show me so much about being good to myself and about how I want to live and love.  Thank you.

****

Right now, the titles I’m looking at for my book are “Forgiving Connects” or “Forgiving Journal” or even something like “Putting Love First: Forgiveness, Letting Go, and Gratitude”.

What I’m excited about is to learn more about love in the writing of it.

I love you!  Thank you for listening.

Love,

Debbie

  3. I so resonate with so much of your post. Gosh, Debbie I am always amazed by your authenticity. You inspire me to dig deep and really identify the parts within myself parts that I have not forgiven. I love how you talk about standing up for yourself. I think for so long I put myself on the back burner, wanting to be unobtrusive to others- but sometimes just going for what we want full force and ignoring every single reason not to is freedom coming to fruition. I can’t wait to read your book. Sign me up for a copy. Heck, I’ll take the rough draft ❤ So thankful for you!
