Today’s forgiving journal is a request for help. #Iforgive
I tried writing this journal multiple times, and kept stopping.
Truth is, I’m discouraged. I had a neat idea for a project called “ForgivingFridays” . I’d like to encourage people to take action to forgive on that day and post about it on their blog or social media, using #ForgivingFridays and #Iforgive. Someone else is doing a similar thing already, although not exactly.
Do I keep doing it? Do I let it go? What I am present to is this.
Love it. Love it all. Ask for love to lead the way.
I think what really bothered me the most is that I was so excited about it. I forgive myself. I forgive myself for judging. I forgive myself for forgetting to have fun.
When I was walking in NY, I saw a sign outside this store that had “LOVE” written in many colors. That’s what I see for this beautiful day of forgiving.
I don’t know what the name will be or what the form will be exactly. What I do want to do is invite lots of creative expression, such as forgiveness statements, short stories, poetry, photography, video, etc that inspire forgiving in its many colors.
Today, what inspires me is the dedication that I see in people to love. It stops me in my tracks, and I am awed by all of the expressions of the human experience.
I’m still feeling a little stuck, and I am open to love showing me the way.
I love you.
