Forgiveness is not an occasional act, it is a constant attitude-
How many times did you notice this weekend your thoughts and emotions going in two different directions?!? A quick show of hands … Cool, we have a few shaky hands poking up in the back of the room.
We often experience this state of mind whilst practicing yoga, running along a scenic trail, holding hands with a loved one. Our burdened mind tells us that we should forgive, let go of these dreary thoughts and be fully present in this beautiful moment. However, our hearts may be holding on to feelings of bias, doubt and not being able to forgive. Our heats long to forgive, although the rancidity of the thoughts tumbling around in our mind keeps bringing up of past wrongdoing(s).
We create our own limitations when we consciously choose not to forgive.
My hope this week is to share with you and shed a little light on the profound idea that forgiving yourself (and others) is a choice, a choice that we control and a choice that will have the most impact on whatever you choose to engage in (yoga, running, loosing a few pounds etc).
Forgiveness is a powerful feeling, even more powerful than your best 5k time. Forgiveness will release you on the “mat“, in “life“.
How crazy that this blog post came through today. It couldn’t have come at a better time. I struggle with forgiveness and have just realised that today is the first day of the rest of my life. I will no longer let my inability to forgive dictate the rest of my life. I am not as happy as I should be because I have this shadow called unforgiveness hanging over me. Whether it be the need to forgive myself or others, today is the day! Thanks for your post. I love it!
You have totally made my day! 🙂 When I write these posts, I share personal stories, they may be cheeky, tedious, murky and not much fun to read. My only intent is to touch just one person and start a conversation, either with ourselves or with another person close by. Forgiveness is single handily the most precious gift we can give ourselves. I’m speechless right now and I’m so happy this tiny little post reached you today. Be well and please take care!
You are more than welcome. Thank you for reading today, take care and be well. 🙂
Are you reading my mind? I call it running angry.
Maybe, just maybe I’m reading your mind. 😉
