In celebration of Forgiveness Day, today, let’s push the pause button and stop for a moment!   Why is it important to practice the art of forgiveness in our lives? What does it accomplish?
Forgiveness is an act we do for ourselves, for our own emotional wellbeing.  It allows us to unload the burdens of emotional baggage that are weighing us down and sucking the life out of us!
When we make peace with our pain, anger, and injustice, it will allow our wings to carry us up and away so that we may soar to a “lighter” life!   Not practicing forgiveness keeps us stuck in the muck!
Who wants or needs that?  Make a commitment today to move towards a happier and lighter life by letting go of the old wounds and hurts of yesterday.
Open your heart to the act of forgiveness and remove the anchors that keep you in the murky waters of pain. It is transforming and healing for the body and soul.  You are worth it and living a life that is “lighter” means living a life that is free from the weight of grudges, pain, anger, and negativity.  Letting it all go allows the spirit of peace and healing to enter your body and spirit.  You have the power to make this happen and you are the benefactor when you do so.  Make a step towards wellness today–forgive others, forgive yourself, and forgive the life dreams you thought were promised but were snatched away.
Today is National Forgiveness Day.  Make it also the day you become “lighter” and free from the bonds of past wounds, unmet needs, abuse, and sorrow.  Begin the journey to healing.  Step onto the path to forgiveness.  Look ahead to the dawn of a new day as the “lighter” you!
