Forgiveness is Happiness

One aspect of my personal mantra for this year is Forgiveness, and let
me tell you; it’s changed my life! For so many year, practically my
entire life, I’ve held grudges or not truly forgiven people that have
hurt me in the past and that definitely takes a toll on your spirit,
happiness, and peace of mind. As much as I’ve tried to fight the notion
that “not forgiving someone is like drinking poison and expecting them
to die”, I faced facts and accepted that to be true. Once I realized that I
needed to let go of the past and truly forgive, not just say it but
live in it too, my life became a millions times better. My spirt is more
calm and I definitely gained a peace of mind. 

It’s only been a few weeks since embracing this new
mindset/mantra and it’s not always easy, but it has been worth it. I do
sometimes get a negative feeling or random flashback of the past so I
constantly remind myself to live in my forgiveness, let go of the past,
and keep moving forward. And I can truly see in action “when you want
something, all the universe conspires to help you achieve it”. For
example, today my daily horoscope was about forgiveness and it was a
pleasant reminder.
I say all this too say, F O R G I V E. Not
for anyone else, religion, or external force, but for YOU and your peace
of mind. It may not be today, tomorrow, next week, or next month but at
your own pace and time allow yourself to forgive. The sooner you can
let go and accept that you cannot change the past the easier forgive
will be.
