Today’s Forgiving Fridays is letting go of the past.
Each Friday is #ForgivingFridays (yay) – an invitation for you to take action to forgive and post about it on your blog, or on Facebook or other social media.
Last week, one beautiful blogger, Infinity Living joined me in #ForgivingFridays with a beautiful poem that inspire forgiveness for her. Click here to read her post. Thank you, Infinity Living. Your blog is a demonstration of loving, blessings and forgiveness. 🙂
My contribution today for #ForgivingFridays is to forgive myself for any judgments I am placing against myself or others for past mistakes, situations, experiences, ETCETERA!
I am visiting a peace ranch this weekend, and I realized as I’m up here that I am holding on to so many things from the past. My heart hurts with some of the memories. It is time for me to let them go, to start fresh, and to be born again in my own love. Time for forgiving:
1 – Self-forgiveness: I forgive myself for judging myself for the mistakes that I made in my career. I forgive myself for judging myself as less than because I’m a woman. I forgive myself for judging myself for forgetting that there are no mistakes, only learning.
2 – Letting go: I let all this go into a beautiful pool of peace, this gorgeous nature at the Ranch, and I step free.
3 – Gratitude: I am grateful for my self-awareness and my willingness and courage to let go, and to forgive. And to step into what’s new for me – guided and blessed by the prayers for peace inside every step I take.
I ride on a swing tied to a tree each time I come up here. This time, I swung with a clear intention to set myself free. It was so joyful. (I highly encourage a visit to nature if you can do it!)
What would you like to forgive? I encourage you to share it! You could post a poem, or a photo that helps you to forgive, or a quote on forgiveness, and you can also simply say, “I forgive”. Whatever connects for you.
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.
I love you.
ps – this is my contribution to Frank’s weekly photo challenge, Spring. Frank, I’m starting new this day as I forgive and walk each step in peace.
