Happy #ForgivingFridays everyone! Yay! This is an opportunity for YOU to share about forgiveness & post about it ANY DAY this week! You can post a poem, a quote, or a photo (or even a short story like one of this week’s contributors), or you can write about loving it all like I did. Or simply do a post with two words, “I Forgive”. (See guidelines below )
Today’s Forgiving Fridays is loving it all.
I just got back from a week long retreat. My phone was off, and so was my computer.
I spent a week looking inside my heart. I learned so much about acceptance and letting go, and in that space, I experienced such peace, calm, and love.
And now here I am in daily life. I am about to move and I’m worried about that. There is so much going on in the world, and so much opportunity for upset.
Right now, I feel overwhelmed. A key for me is to start inside – with accepting and loving me. To pause and ask myself, “How can I love right now?”
What I hear is to forgive myself.
I feel so scared about moving. I feel guilty about my concern given all that’s happening in the world. I don’t feel like I’m making sense in this blog. I forgive myself for judging myself for feeling these things.
I forgive myself for judging it all – the bombs, my own fear, and every little nitty gritty thing in life.
I don’t know where I’m moving, or what will happen with this world. What I know is that I want to share forgiveness through traveling …. and that there is so much opportunity to see all of it – every little nitty gritty thing in life – as love.
What if there were a different way to live? What if each of us are a part of each other? ❤
There’s an alley I walk through to get to my room. I may never see this alley again. I’m ready to move on and up for the adventure. (In fact, it’s right up my alley 🙂 )
On this Forgiving Fridays, I choose to forgive myself, let go of what I think I know, love it all — and open to where love leads me. To be continued!!
I am grateful for all of you who contribute to Forgiving Fridays. I learn so much from you! Here are this week’s contributions:
Etta of Simply Etta D. gave us a beautiful invitation to REALLY love and take care of ourselves.
DeBorah of Roaming Urban Gypsy took a collage of photos and showed us the endless compassion in the view that is exquisite.
Di of Matters For The Heart gifted us with a heartfelt sharing on self-acceptance and loving – I learned a lot!
Emily of Zombie Flamingos did a really creative process with photos to illustrate her judgment and forgiveness on going back to work.
Pragalbha of Infinite Living contributed a wonderful poem on fully living life and trusting ourselves.
And a new contributor ❤ :
Bernice of SpiritualJourney17 shared a prayer for forgiveness to illustrate the powerful ways we can make a wish to choose love.
When I came back from my retreat, I took a photo on the plane. See below. I’d love for you to send blessings to my next steps, I’m really taking a leap of faith!
I love you.
ps – I’m aware re-reading this blog that I am struggling a bit with loving myself right now. That is so ok! ❤ I am accepting myself where I am. (Isn’t that such a key for forgiveness?)
