A broken friendship that is mended through forgiveness can be even stronger than it once was-
Let’s change one little word in the above quote by Stephen Richards – A broken body that is mended through forgiveness can be even stronger than it once was …
Why do many well intended people flippantly object to the truth that we create our own reality?
When life goes “sideways” and our goals don’t materialize magically before our eyes, many people dig deep into their past to toss blame hither and yon: Damn yoga mat, piece of shit running shoes, mom and dad, that chic over there staring at me working on my “snatch” technique – whatever that is?!?
Why do we devote more of our energy, settling for what is, instead of recognizing what we can become?
Are we such socially awkward cowards, that we lack the courage to tell someone, ourselves even, they are responsible for creating the injured mess they now lament in? “Dude, you have had three knee surgeries in the last 18 months … Chill the f**k out for once and forgive yourself.”
Each one of us has the power to recognize and to create our own reality, including injuries and failures.
Forgiveness … Is the root of Self Love.
argh. Indeed. in-deed. Great reminder for yet another day that I cannot run 😉
People laugh at me when I share with them one of the hardest “things” I have ever done in my life: Saying no, to running. There’s more to the story, most context and trivial details. But, at the end of the day? Looking in the mirror, titling our head up … Saying no – That’s hard.
I love this photo in this post!
Ironically that the people who like to argue that they DO NOT create their own reality are the same people who believe themselves to be “unlucky” (what, you think I LIKE being this way?!?!) and are chronically plagued with troubles.
We create our own luck don’t we?!? 😉 Goodness you could get me started on a proper rant in regards to this “touchy” topic …
