Today’s forgiving journal is speaking Debbie’s Dreams.
I want to do forgiving consulting. I want a house (a cottage maybe) in the woods. I want a romantic partner to do this work with. I want to work for MSIA, my spiritual org. How am I going to do this? I don’t exactly know. What I do know is that it’s time to state what I want. I am acknowledging the dreams deep within my heart.
What I also know is that I’ve used old patterns to distract myself from going for what I want. For example: self-judgment, self-criticism (especially about my body), and worry that I’ll make a wrong step if I really go for it. Well, that is not true – I am ready for more!
Time for forgiving:
1 – Self-forgiveness: I forgive myself for judging myself for worrying I’m going to make a wrong move. I forgive myself for judging myself as unworthy to go for what I want – and oh, oh, as incapable to go for what I want. And most of all, I forgive myself for judging myself as unlovable because I am me.
2 – Letting go: I let all these judgments go into the Light so that I may step free. And dream. And play more.
3 – Gratitude: I am so grateful for the courage I have to let go, to forgive, and to open my heart. I am so grateful for how I show up for myself, time and time again. And I am so grateful for the little girl inside of me who kept dreaming even when I distracted myself.
My dreams matter. My wants matter. The steps that I take are part of my own personal dance of joy. And I am dancing! I invite each of you to dance with me, and to bring your own dreams so that we can make a chorus – an orchestra – of great love.
How’s that for a vision for 2017?
I love you.
ps – this past year, I started this forgiving blog, started working again for MSIA, moved across the country, and connected with so many blessed people. Thank you Debbie and everyone involved!! (So important to acknowledge ourselves J )
