Happy #ForgivingFridays everyone! Join with fellow bloggers & post about forgiveness ANY DAY this week. You can post about “quieting your mind” like I did, or relationship or your body, or even a poem or photo or something else creative. Anything that opens you to forgive. You are so supported. (See guidelines below ❤ )
***This is my sharing for Frank’s Challenge, History & Nikki’s Prompt, Independence. Frank and Nikki, I am taking my time this week to learn and love my history and to step beyond it as a bridge into my heart. It is also my post for The Daily Post’s Bridge.
Today’s Forgiving Fridays is 7 days of quieting my mind – starting today!
I have such an amazing opportunity to take a 7 day retreat for myself. My schedule is open. My partner is out of town. I completed a bunch of projects. What’s next for Debbie?
I invite you to join me this next week as I quiet my mind, do forgiveness, and ask myself “What’s next for Debbie?” Here’s what I’m doing each day:
*Forgiveness: Self-forgiveness is the key!!
*And a daily gift! (Today’s is gratitude)
And each day, I’m doing a little video to do one of these steps. See below for #1!!
I also want to say that I realize I’ve allowed my past to hold me back. Much as I am scared to let go, it’s time to learn and to love what it was and to not allow it to stop me anymore. I am opening to the gentle strength of my abilities, my dreams, and my talents – and I forgive myself for believing anything else. ❤
I am grateful for all of you who contribute to Forgiving Fridays. I learn so much from you! Here are this week’s contributions:
