January 30th - forgive and move on with a smile.

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


To be the first to show forgiveness is not a sign of weekness.  It is a gift we give ourselves so we can move on and enjoy our life.  It takes a very strong person to forgive. It’s a sign of strength not weakness.

To forgive is to stop feeling angry or resentful toward someone for an offense, flaw or mistake.  The choice is ours to make. Releasing the hurts doesn’t mean they aren’t guilty.  but it takes the weight off of the offender.  We can be proud of ourselves for being the bigger person.You’ll never be able to move forward unless you let go.

Forgiveness is the central key because it helps us.  it’s one of the best things you can do for yourself.  It’s a path to freedom. It’s a powerful first step that is for us.  It provides a sense of peace, it breaches the hold offenders have on us and enables us to move forward.  Words have power and the potential is our freedom.  It’s worth a try.

Holding on to anger holds you back and weighs you down.  Learn to forgive and feel as light as air.  You will then have room in your heart for  all the goodness that’s available in your life.

Forgiveness is a funny thing it warms the heart and cools the sting.

Truth! Forgiveness is something I still struggle to overcome. Your phrase, "Releasing the hurt doesn't mean they aren't guilty" certainly helps. Who am I, after all, to play God?
