Forgiveness is a blessing to the forgiver and the person being forgiven. Sometimes it is the same person. In other words we can choose to forgive ourselves from behaviors we have judged ourselves for.
Saturday was Yom Kippor the holiest day on the Jewish calendar (lunar calendar).
In honor of this “Day of Atonement” I focused on forgiveness and what it meant to me.
Forgiveness really is all about ourselves. The more we can let go the more we can move on and fully embrace our lives. If we are not forgiving then the person it affects the most is us.
I wrote a few pages of things to forgive myself for and as I wrote them I could feel a release inside of me … a healing.
Here are just a few of the things I have noticed about myself over the years and have chosen to forgive myself for:
Rushing and making it just in time
Not fully taking in the moment
Preaching my ideas to those that do not care…i.e…family 🙂
Eating too fast
Not trusting in myself
Playing and thinking small
Not speaking up
Constricting instead of expanding (I just breathed very deeply – confirmation!)
Holding my breath
Not feeling worthy
Not seeing Source inside myself
Working too hard
Well that’s 12 and I can assure you there are many more.
I am going to keep writing. There is so much!! Perhaps I can inspire you to write along with me?!
I am in gratitude and appreciation for you.
Love and Inspiration!
