A Lesson Learned

July 29, 2010

Yesterday I learned a valuable lesson.

A lesson in forgiveness and it was a humbling experience.

I was forgiven.

I’ve been spending so much time and energy over the course of my life feeling wronged.  I’m embarssed to admit that I’d been focusing SO much on what other’s had done to me and very little time on those that I have hurt.  I walk around being the good mom.  A kind friend.  An empathetic ear.    But I have been the perpetrator of heartbreak myself.  I’ve acted selfishly.

I’ve been saying that there is a karma in love.

You break a heart/Your heart gets broken/You break a heart/Your heart gets broken.

Yesterday I was forgiven.

Yesterday when I experienced forgiveness I realized it was time to LET GO of pain and anger.    I need to stop being a victim in my own mind.  If someone can forgive me the least that I can do is pay it forward.

I’m letting it all go.

The hurt.
The anger.
The bitterness.

I’m moving forward in a blaze of forgiveness.

I only hope it’s NOT too late!

      I am not proud of my ability to break hearts. The first step in recovery is to admit that you have a problem right?

        yes, now when are you going to admit that i’m your higher power?

    Forgiveness is truly a gift. Accepting that gift is not always easy. Forgiving yourself is probably hardest of all. Hang in there.
