Today is Forgiving Fridays – yay! Please post about forgiveness – ANY day this week & anything that inspires you to forgive! (See guidelines below ❤ )
Today’s Forgiving Fridays is An Honest Look at Myself.
I got voted off as a Team Leader for a committee that I was on last night.
God, I cried. And I got angry. And I blamed myself and others. Then, I stopped, breathed, and laid down on my bed. I took a good, long look at what I may have to learn about leadership.
I realized that I had not honored certain members of the group, and that I didn’t listen with loving to myself and to them. Funny thing is that when I joined the group, I put a stickie note on my bathroom with: “Honor myself and others” & “Listen”.
Time for Forgiveness (thank God!):
I forgive myself for judging myself for blaming other people for things I need to learn. I forgive myself for judging myself as a bad leader for getting voted off in this group. I forgive myself for buying into the belief that the “task” is more important than the loving.
I let all this go today with a simple phrase, I LOVE IT ALL!!! Thank you to me, to the members of the group, and to Spirit for showing me how to love more deeply, and to listen.

Have you ever gotten a wake up call to be honest with yourself? How did you handle it? Is there anything that you’d still like to forgive?
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.
