The Act of Forgiveness
Well, well here we are in the month of August already. For some, this month represents going back to school whether to grade school, middle school, high school or college.
Some well known Days of Celebration for August are:
Admit You’re Happy Month, Family Fun Month and National Clown Month just to name a few.
I’d like to change it up a bit and declare it “Forgiveness Month”. Would that be okay with you? I say forgiveness month because it fits right into the newness of what’s all going on in this month anyway. In August, I tend to feel a sense of newness all around.
Allow me to share a bit about me… In my quest to one day own a business and be successful at it meant – I had some huge forgiveness to get under my belt, super fast or I would continue to advance in life at what seemed like 5 MPH – talk about snail speed. If you want your life to advance at (-5), holding onto unforgiveness will get you there quicker than anything else I know of – or have experienced. If that’s what you want…
But for most of us who are somewhat emotionally stable we want rapid growth and development in our lives at mock speed. Am I speaking of you?
Good, then can we move right along…
You may say, forgiveness is not something that comes easy for you. I say it can become an easy habit, yes – I said an easy habit, if you know the true benefits involved not just for the person you are choosing to forgive but for You as well.
I’ve had a lot of practice in forgiveness and I can honestly say for me, I’m grateful for the experiences that have truly taught me to forgive.
A few benefits to Forgiveness are:
Peace of mind, clarity of heart, cured insomnia, focus, clear vision, new hope, a new love towards your offenders and a heart of compassion like never before.
Think on these benefits for the rest of this week and be ready to dive into Forgiveness a little more on Monday.
Happy Forgiveness Month to You!
Walk In Love,
