Welcome to my new revamped site. I hope you all like it. It was designed with love and care.
My first blog is going to be about forgiveness, a big one! I have always found that it is difficult for people to forgive; I feel that when we forgive someone, it frees us from all those negative feelings in our system. It makes us healthier on so many levels, emotionally, spiritually, and physically. It allows us to feel better. I feel much better when I have forgiven someone, bringing me to a place of peace. I very much believe in Karma, the Law of Cause and Effect, or in other words, what goes around comes around. That being said, if I want forgiveness for any wrongdoings that I have done, I must also forgive. I often find that my family, friends, and clients have difficulty forgiving. And let’s not forget the word that goes along with it, forgetting. I think it’s hard to forgive and forget when wronged in one way or another. Saying (I’m sorry) to small words could mean the world of difference to someone that is hoping for an apology from you. I don’t have an issue with admitting when I’m wrong and more often say I’m sorry even when I’m not the person who did the damage, As I’ve grown older, I have learned that forgiveness is a process. Being aware that it is a process makes it easier for me to forgive people, and if they have genuinely wronged me, then I move on. It does make one’s heart, mind, and Spirit feel a sense of freedom and happiness when this process is completed. We learn that it makes us feel better within ourselves and with others who we come across in our journey called life. For me, there have been many, some I just had to say goodbye to and never look back..the Karma was complete. But, there have been some I have been fortunate enough to have forgiven, mended fences, and resumed happy and healthy relationships.
Forgiving and forgetting, I know they are supposed to go hand in hand, but I still haven’t mastered that. I think that’s just part of our DNA; those imprints of whatever it was that caused the hurt in the first place. Time is a great healer. Don’t forget that!!! So try and forgive and know that time will heal the hurts you may be feeling today, and even the incident may be forgotten.
Love and Blessings, Joanne
