What power has love but forgiveness?
In other words
by its intervention
what has been done
can be undone.
What good is it otherwise? 

William Carlos Williams

February 1st - keep the power supply open

When you forgive, you in no way change the past but you sure do change the future.

Bernard Meltzer

February is the month of hearts and roses.  If you’ve ever loved anybody, you know that Love includes a lot of forgiveness.  Forgiveness is a powerful thing. 

If you spend your time trying to change the past rather than improve your future, then you are not choosing to forgive.  To forgive, and overcome, can give us hope and an anchor in future storms of life

Forgiving, releasing and letting go doesn't change what happened in the past, but it does change who you will be in the future; and not only you, but anybody that you encounter in the future.

There is no changing the past, but we can choose to move forward.  Every day is a new beginning!  

The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong. 

Mahatma Gandhi

You can't change the past or worry about the future, so don't dwell on it.  Choose peace and love instead of anger and resentment.  It’s our choice to make.  You cannot do anything about what is behind you, but you can do a great deal about what lies ahead of you. 

Letting go is giving up what is beyond your control to embrace what you can change. We can’t control the past, but we can focus on the miracles around us today. 

Love is an act of endless forgiveness, a tender look which becomes a habit. 

Peter Ustinov

The doors we open and close each day decide the lives we live.  

If you wish to travel far and fast, travel light. Take off all your envies, jealousies, unforgiveness, selfishness and fears. 

Glenn Clark

Learn from the past, but don't dwell on it or try to live in it. Its gone and we won't get it back. Good to strive to look ahead to the future and live each and every day fully :)

But we still want to try, we do it over and over again. I do appreciate the statement: We cannot change the past, but we can direct the future to a point. (roughly quoted) I still find myself, Not changing, but trying to readjust the past. It hasn't worked yet! LOL

This is a powerful message, Ma. I think some folks tend to confuse forgiveness with forgetting. (Including myself, not all that long ago!)
Like Jack, I'm known to try and readjust my past. Better, I spend time readjusting my MEMORIES?


Letting go of the bad things is difficult to do. But this quote inspires. " To forgive, and overcome, can give us hope and an anchor in future storms of life."
