Today’s forgiving journal: Love in Different Colors

Today’s forgiving journal is about love in different colors.
Well, I got my room set up today. One of the biggest parts of this for me was hanging my painting, “Love in Different Colors”. It’s made the trip across the country numerous times, and the message is near and dear to my heart.
So I hung it above a statue of Kuan Yin, the Goddess of Compassion. And after it was all done, I got scared. Like, “What am I doing? How long will I be here? Did I make a mistake?”
The thing is, I’m doing an amazing job. I am so courageous. I am taking wonderful steps to expand into my gifts, because I am letting my heart lead me and I am acting in faith.
Time for forgiving:
1 – Self-forgiveness: I forgive myself for judging myself for feeling scared to be here. I forgive myself for judging myself for not wanting to hold in the unknowing with what’s next. I forgive myself for judging myself for wanting to crawl into a hole because I feel alone right now.
2 – Letting Go: I let go of all this judgment into the grace that is with me every step of the way.
3 – Gratitude: I pause, breathe, and receive. Thank you for things like “Love in Different Colors” to remind me that all of this inside of me is love. And that I can and am loving it all.
Another thing I did this weekend is to go on a hike with two dear friends. I almost cancelled, and I went anyway. It’s a way for me to connect and to discover more about what activities truly make my heart sing. And to step outside of my comfort zone, love, and be loved.

Thank you for hearing me. This was not the easiest blog post to write. I am going to my next level of compassion, seeing more faces of my inner self, and taking this time to say, “I hear you, and I love you.”

I love you. ❤

    Any time we step outside of our comfort zone our brain has doubts. It is always wonderful to hear about another’s process of growing. I am cheering you on from afar.
