If we were sitting and sharing a cup of tea today I would let you know that the winners of my revised blog launch were participants: 1, 6. 17 - as selected by random.org (see end of post for winner names). and I would show you my Marie Antoinette teacup from Versailles.
I would also share one of my steps in creating myself .... Forgiveness. I needed to forgive the guy who was driving the car that struck me down and changed my life as I knew it. I didn't have to tell him, but I had to in my heart forgive him ~ not for him but for myself. Forgiving released me from the internal anger, hurt ~ that I didn't even realize I was carry around.
At some point in your life someone will do something or something will happen, that will leave you shattered. The last thing you will be thinking of is "forgiving" the person(s) [you feel are] responsible for your PAIN!
Forgiveness doesn't mean what happen was OK, and it doesn't mean you have to welcome the person(s) [back] into your life. It just means you have made peace with the pain, and are able to let it go.
Sometimes things happen to us when we are young. This hurt hides itself in the deepest darkest corners of our minds. We may not always recall it ... but it remains there, keeping us from fully living. Until we choose to longer remain victim to what happen to us ... we can we move forward and THRIVE!
Forgiveness frees us from the past.
As you sit and sip your cup of tea with me today ...
Take a moment ... think of someone who has hurt you and forgive the hurt they have caused you. Do this not for them ... [they don't need to know that you have forgiven their actions]... Do it for you!
Today I'm sharing with you my Marie Antoinette teacup which I purchased at Versailles on my 2010 trip to Paris with Mr. G.
