To Force Forgiveness

Monday, May 1st, 2017

No ContactOne thing I know for sure is that it is impossible to force another person who has caused me hurt and pain to ask for my forgiveness.

Why would I want to do that anyway?

There would be no point to the forgiveness because it wouldn’t be sincere.

Forgiveness is not always timely and doesn’t happen in a straight line. If it happens at all, it often happens out of the blue when the deed done is something we’ve moved past.

If we try to get another person to see their wrongdoing it is completely counterproductive as we can not make anyone see anything. They must see it for themselves.

We are not here to be judge and jury. We live our lives and own our lives by taking responsibility for the things we do and say to others. As long we live like this we can go to bed at night and sleep soundly.

If you have lived with abuse you know what I’m talking about.

There is no way to force an apology.

You can learn to accept yourself and nurture you in the face of abuse. Not by putting up with the abuse but by standing up to the abuse in the safest way you possibly can.

Life Goes By in the Blink of an Eye

Sunday, December 4th, 2016

As you know, life goes by in the blink of an eye.

If there is something you want to do, do it.

If there is someone you want to see, find a way to see that person.

If you have a strong interest you’ve thought about pursuing but have never gone further than thinking about it, take the next step.

If you have something you want to say, say it now.

Once you take that next step, whatever it is, the relief you feel will be enormous.

Life will look a little different just because you stepped out and took a chance.

We never know how many days we have.

Live each day fully.

While Searching

Sunday, April 17th, 2016

While searching staying present and focused is key.

Knowing who you are at the very core helps you gain a foothold into possible future endeavors.

Even when daily trials and frustrations put you in a bleak state you will be able to go forward because you’ve figured out what’s important to you and how you want to live.

Never discount the present because you don’t like some aspect of what’s going on in your life.

The present gives us masters training in perseverance and getting the most out of what in our opinion is not ideal.

Pouting is for babies and it looks pretty darn cute on them.

On adults…NO

The Moment

Friday, January 23rd, 2015

The moment you realize you’ve had it and you are done

with things the way they are

you’ll know what you need to do to make things better.

You’ll need to risk and perhaps

even take a bold action.

Once you stand up to the thing you

fear and look it in the eye

you will breathe a sigh of relief

because you’ve made it to a pivotal moment

and at that point you will feel strength and

calm and belief that you are on your way.

A Little Truth

Monday, December 22nd, 2014

There’s a little truth behind every just kidding, a little curiosity behind every just wondering, a little knowledge behind every I don’t know, and a little emotion behind every I don’t care.
