(Here’s a short video about the story of forgiveness, letting go and moving on)
Have you ever had someone who spoke negatively about you, done you wrong or said things to bring you down in the past? Most of us may have had such encounter before.
Today, do yourself a favor, let go of the past hurts and disappointments. Yes, I know it is easier said then done. However, understand that what happened in your past is not exactly as important as what is in your future. What is more important now is where you are going is much more significant than where you have been.
If you linger and dwell on people’s negative opinion about you, you will stay stuck as a victim. What you should do is believe that God has created you to be a VICTOR not a victim. Having a victim mentality rob many people of peace, happiness, enjoyment and blessings for life.
If someone talk nasty, negatively or offended you in the past, leave the negative baggage behind. There is someone I know who resented by what her parents had said when she was young and still carries the baggage of negativity and resentment after more than fifty years and she even declare that she will bring the bitterness to her grave. Her parents are no longer around but instead of forgiveness, she choose to carry the weight of resentment for a lifetime. Life is too short to live that way. Learn to lighten your load.
When you forgive someone who have hurt or disappoint you, you are not being weak, on the contrary, you made yourself stronger because you set yourself FREE from bitterness, anger, resentment and disappointment. By choosing to free yourself, you are giving yourself more power, energy and focus on things that matters.
As Doe Zantamata, author of Karma so eloquently says “Anyone can hold a grudge, but it takes a person with character to forgive. When you forgive, you release yourself from a painful burden. Forgiveness doesn’t mean what happened was OK, and it doesn’t mean that person should still be welcome in your life. It just means that you have made peace with the pain, and are ready to let it go.”
Being every morning with fresh and new perspectives. Focus on things that are good and positive. Let go of your ‘distress’ baggage and move in the life of blessings, contentment, abundance that your creator has in store for you! You are a victor and not a victim. Release things that are holding you back. Let happiness, blessings, peace and love flow into your life!
