“Forgiveness is the key to action and freedom.” – Hannah Arendt
Forgive yourself, forgive your past, forgive your parents, your husband (partner), your sisters, your brothers, your friends, and your kids. Forgive anyone that disappointed you. Forgive yourself for mistakes you’ve made. Make peace. Harboring resentment can send your thoughts into a never ending loop of anger and frustration.
Write down the things you’re holding on to. Don’t edit or reason with your list. Just write it down – you can burn it later ;-). For example here are some of the things I had been holding on to: I forgive my parents for not being rich, I forgive my ex-boyfriend for being unfaithful, I forgive myself for not always treating my body and life like a trophy.
Take a deep breathe and let it all go. You can not change the past and living there gets you no where fast. Leave your failures, your hurt, your blame and your shame behind you. Say sayonara to your old ugly baggage.
Good, feel better? Now that you’ve kicked all your old shit to the curb you’ve cleared space in your life for shiny new things. And ladies, we all love shiny & new.
