Happy #ForgivingFridays everyone! Yay! This is an opportunity for you to let go and forgive. You can do your post ANY DAY this week! Anything that inspires YOU to forgive and choose love – even if you’re struggling. e.g., write a poem, share a quote or video, do an act of kindness, forgive yourself or someone else. 🙂 I look forward to see what you do!
Today’s Forgiving Fridays is I’m moving and happiness!
This week, I gave notice at my place – I’m going to be moving! For the third time in a two year period.
This is such good news. I’m expanding into something new and different – and I’m not even sure what that is, except that I’m saying YES to my heart. I may be moving in with David, I may move into a bigger apartment where I can have more space & really do my coaching in a bigger way. Or maybe I’ll even be moving to another location outside of L.A.
Here’s the thing. I woke up this morning with a clear commitment to being happy as I make this change. And I heard inside, “write about four segments of happiness”. I can use these every step of the way – I’m ready!
Here we go:
Ideal Scenes: these are a way to go for what we want. On the paper is a heart that says “I Am”. I’ll then make spokes & write statements on them of me living into my Ideal Scene. So for example, “I am making delicious, healthy meals in my modern, spacious kitchen for me and David and having such fun doing it.” I’m going to create one this weekend!
Self-Care: this is essential. As we go for what we want, it is so important to balance doing acts to take care of ourselves with taking action out in the world. Our health and happiness is key and a solid foundation for all else. As I do all that goes with moving, I am committed to putting myself first.
Forgiveness: What? 🙂 Seriously, this is a way for me to invite Spirit into what I’m doing. Judgments are likely to come forward as we take positive action in our lives. This may be judging ourselves for how we’re taking action, or old blocks may resurface for healing such as “I’m not worthy of good things.” Self-forgiveness is the greatest key that I know to letting go, giving myself loving, and opening to Spirit to get free!
Inner Guidance: OK, so the fourth segment to expanding into happiness is – me! I have everything that I need inside of me to choose happiness and make positive decisions. And wherever I go, there I am! And I am wonderful. All aspects of this move are in service to my awakening into greater awareness of myself as love.
Well, everyone, there you have it! I even made a video this morning to illustrate:
I am SO SO 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 wonderful keys on how to work as a team, especially when a team member acts in a “non-team like” manner. 🙂 Including 4 great benefits of teamwork – like creativity!
DeB of Roaming Urban Gypsy contributed her new acrylic painting, An Acquired Taste. It’s a BEAUTIFUL depiction of how it’s ok to struggle … and take our time accepting things. Thank you, DeB!
Nikki of A Kinder Way asks a simple question for us to pause and accept what’s going on inside of us when we’re upset – and to open to what really matters. What an incredible, easy tool to forgive!
Frank of Poetry, Short Prose and Walking wrote a poem on the transformative power of forgiveness for us to experience the beauty of life. A heart-warming gift for blessing our humanity!
Ali of Flashlight Batteries gave us a poem on Self-forgiveness, asking whether we can indeed have compassion for ourselves. Just her inquiry opened my heart to such self-beauty!
Pragalbha of Infinite Living shared an inquiry on trust, simply allowing herself to be and learn what her knowing has for her. An exquisite contribution on letting go!
And in case you missed it…
Revived Writer contributed a poem that illustrates the freedom of forgiveness in such a unique way! There is such great love in her post – I almost cried!
I’d like to end with a quote from a book, Forgiveness: The Key to the Kingdom by John-Roger, DSS. This book is a compilation of reflections on forgiveness, and I often turn to a page and read what’s there as a message of Love: (with a photo illustration by David Sand)
“When we have really forgiven somebody, we enter into original innocence. And that original innocence is like new snow. It’s like fresh rain that clears the air.
It’s anything where you just go, “Wow.” I guess it’s every sunset I’ve ever seen….They’re all new.”
I love you.
**This is my contribution to Frank’s photo challenge, Play. Frank, I am committed to having a heck of a lot of happiness as I move into my new location. It’s a great choice, and you helped me make it – thank you!**
