aringThis is my contribution to #ForgivingFridays – you can join in on your blog any day this week. It’s also my post for Dutch Goes the Photo’s Challenge, Mystery. Frank, I am in the mystery of knowing myself as love… Asking myself every morning now. It is a beautiful ride. Thank you so much.
Today’s Forgiving Fridays is Wow Did I Nurture Me!
Have you done Forgiving Fridays yet? Please join in (guidelines below!).
Last week, three beautiful bloggers contributed a sharing on forgiveness. Ali of Flashlight Batteries brought us a poem, “Reflections of Grace”. I read it and almost started crying. Sanved Doshi is the 11 year old son of blogger, Infinity Living – he wrote THREE poems such as one titled, “Fun Time?” (so good). And Simply Etta D. shared gorgeous quotes that resonate with forgiveness. All three posts illustrate that forgiveness comes in many forms – including poetry and quotes! Thank you for these stunning sharings. ❤
For me this week, I want to share with you that each morning for 33 days, I asked how I could nurture me. It has so moved my heart.
What this taught me is to keep going. The reason is that I kept starting and stopping (and I had committed to 33 days!). Each time I forgot, I started again. This showed me that I will really really really stand up for me – until I find love.
I have a prayer to love myself. To experience peace. Well, this daily act of nurturing whispered to me, you are worthy of love. Now, I am sitting here asking a deeper knowing, that I AM LOVE.
Time for forgiveness:
I forgive myself for judging myself for still seeing myself as worthy or unworthy of love. I forgive myself for judging that love is something outside of me, something to attain. I forgive myself, and I just breathe and let go.
The gratitude I have today is thank you, thank you, thank you to me for showing up again and again with this nurturing me.
Today, I find myself on a beautiful patio overlooking the water. I am asking the question, How Do I know that I am love? Right now, I don’t have the answer to that. What I do know is I’ll get there. And that is enough.
I invite you to join me in Forgiving Fridays, however that love and compassion expresses itself inside of YOU.
Thanks for reading. I love you.
