Good morning everyone. Happy Thursday. Remember when you were a little kid and you were made to apologize for something you did and then the other person, no matter what would say, "that's ok," even if their arm hurt from where you punched them, their art work was torn to shreds and you ate the last piece of chocolate cake. The one that they were saving for later.
Simultaneously we learned to atone and forgive and at no point did we think we were giving in. It was something that wouldn't even occur to us. We were being taught that when you do something naughty like eating the LAST PIECE OF CAKE you apologized and no matter how badly you wanted that dessert, you found it in your heart (with some prodding) to forgive.
Today's quote is, "At no point is forgiveness weakness." To forgive shows strength. To forgive shows understanding even when you don't understand. A grudge holds you hostage - forgiveness releases you from the prison of a grudge and opens your heart to release the pain.
That anger that you hold so close sends signals to rewire our brains and bodies making them more susceptible to illness and disease. We are all well aware of what stress does to our bodies. Anger is even worse. There are actions that are unfathomable yet for yourself and your own physical and mental well being, forgiveness is necessary.
Never think you are caving in and crumbling when you say "I forgive you," for those three words are the strongest and most powerful ones you can ever recite.
Have a wonderful Thursday everyone! ~Love, Amy
