Forgiveness

Lighthouse at Peggy’s Cove in Nova Scotia by Laurie Buchanan

Like the path we walk, giving and receiving forgiveness is a fundamental part of life’s journey. Reminiscent of falling leaves, offenses may scatter the pathway of our heart—the seat of our outlook. This attitude determines the terrain of our path and forgiveness keeps the pathway clear.

It is my perspective that the place to start—the place to launch joy, hope, positive aspirations, and healing begins with forgiveness.  Until that bit of housekeeping has been taken care of, everything else is futile.

  1. The path to forgiving other is well traveled in my life. The path to forgiving myself and being able to receive forgiveness is less familiar and even a tad uncomfortable at times. I continue to learn by repeating something I paraphrased from Barbara Coloroso “We do the best we can with what we know at the time.”

  2. Definitely forgiving others is easier, I have a tough skin when it comes to recieving forgiveness and it is a challenge.
    I just give myself a harder time than others……
