December 04-A portion of thyself….
“Rings and jewels are not gifts,but apologies for gifts.The only true gift is a portion of thyself.” Ralph Waldo Emerson
What if you gifted someone this holiday season with true forgiveness? What if you gifted yourself with a clean slate? We hang on to family traditions year after year, through death divorce and disease thinking that this is the way things should be whether we want them or not. What if we could start anew and drag everyone with us?
Our past and our feelings about it affect the total consciousness of the world and our families. What if your portion of yourself was the ability to forgive everyone everything including yourself. Self forgiveness is just as important as forgiving others for perceived wrongs or faults. We are so hard on ourselves. We tend to be much less understanding and compassionate when it comes to our personal feelings. We berate ourselves and point out continously our own faults and failures.
In this season of giving to others, gift yourself with a true forgiveness of your past. Live in the joyful now. Expect the best and it will come to you.
