Forgiving Fridays!

“ForgivingFridays” is a weekly invitation for you to take action to forgive today (or any day this week!) and post about it on you blog or social media, using #ForgivingFridays and #Iforgive.

Examples of what you can post: forgiveness statements, a creative expression (poetry, photography, video, etc) that represents forgiveness, something that inspires forgiving for you, or sharing on what you did today to forgive.

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 will come of this 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.

Forgiveness starts inside.  My commitment is to learn that with every fiber of my being.  And I invite you to join me, however that creates a safe space inside of you.

Let love show us the way.  🙂


Here are the guidelines of this challenge:

  • Write a post to share your contribution on forgiveness. It can be today (Friday) or anytime up until next Thursday night. 🙂
  • Please tag your post with #ForgivingFridays (if you’re not sure about how tags work, please check out this WordPress article about tagging posts)
  • Create a pingback link to this post, so that I can create a post showing all of the submissions over the week (note: pingbacks may not appear immediately, as my site is set up to require approval for linking to it; helps against previous bad experiences with spamming)
  • Have fun creating your own form of forgiving, of loving YOU!!

  1. Beautiful initiative, Debbie. I am looking to 15th March International Forgiving Day as an intention I held for 10 years starting around 1995. So much more is now recognsed and appreciated about the processes of forgiving since that time. The main focus was to open the conversation on forgiving, not making it a “should” but a possible option for greater health and well-being. And of course much more besides!

    1. Anne, this is beautiful. Your commitment to forgiving is SUCH an inspiration to me. This statement is a true gift:
      “The main focus was to open the conversation on forgiving, not making it a “should” but a possible option for greater health and well-being.”

      Thank you for sharing here. ❤ I love you, my friend. Feel free to post on your blog & include #ForgivingFridays if you want to ! Love, Debbie


    1. Oh Miriam, thank you for seeing that and for your sharing with this beautiful comment. I see you making a difference too! You share so much loving with each of us. It is showing me a lot about loving. 🙂 Love you, my friend ~Debbie
      ps: my spiritual mentor John-Roger calls peace “the cessation of againstness”. It’s a part of what inspires me to do forgiving!

  2. What a beautiful idea Debbie and such a worthwhile and loving addition to our lives. A day devoted to forgiveness. If we all learned to love and forgive ourselves every single day imagine how much more peace, happiness and acceptance there would be in this world. Love this. xo

    1. You said it, Miriam! ❤ Love how you put this. I may save it as inspiration for going forward.
      It's also fine to post anytime during the week in case Friday has come and gone FYI. Every day is Friday (maybe that will be my motto for this #ForgivingFridays 🙂 🙂 ). Blessings to you Miriam, Debbie

    1. Oh Deborah, that is best. Forgiving Fridays is so easy. All you need to do is create a post on something that inspires you to forgive, and use the #ForgivingFridays plus include a pingback to this post. There is so much room for your own unique expression – whatever you decide to do for a contribution on forgiving is just fine and welcome. Let me know if you have questions! Blessings, Debbie
