Today’s forgiving journal is about second chances to make peace with myself.
I am aware that I push myself very fast and hard.
I keep trying to write more to explain what I mean by that, and nothing is sounding quite right. So suffice it to say that I am doing a new beginning right now!!
My little girl inside is giving me a clear image of her face. I was very cute when I was that young, and I had a lot of openness to loving and to sharing it. And to joy.
Something happened where I shut that down, and I want to take the time right here and now to acknowledge that little one. Debbie, you are so beautiful, and you are safe inside of me to express your loving.
God, I encourage myself to forgive. To deeply, deeply forgive. I usually do forgiving statements, and this time, I’m going to take a pause right now to write a message to my inner child:
I love you. You are glorious to me. I am your best friend, and I am here for you in all ways, each moment – each step – each second of every day and night. You are my sunshine, and I am so honored for the opportunity to nourish you with love and to take care of myself so that I can truly give to others. I give you a big hug and want you to know that you can always talk to me. I forgive myself for ever doing it differently. You have my word to keep learning how to care for you and love you. Let’s have some fun! 🙂 Every day is your day to Soar.
I’d like to invite you to join me today in forgiving however that lines up for you. It could be something as simple as giving yourself a hug! Or posting a poem or photo or video that inspires you to forgive. Or something entirely different!
However you do it, I encourage you to forgive yourself first… forgiveness starts within, from my best experience of it.
I love you.
ps: this is my second contribution to Frank’s photo challenge for the week, Nostalgia. Frank, I got inspired. 🙂
