"The first step in forgiveness is the willingness to forgive." ~Marianne Williamson
I didn't take a lunch today or specifically think about who I want to be. I got to see the results of some actions I have taken to experience more joy, I listened to a CD during my drive that was really the highlight of my day. I had a few laughs with people, worked hard, was grumpy for a while when I got home, but overall, I feel a change in demeanor...I'm feeling less hunched over from my world, my responsibilities, my choices.
I'm willing to forgive myself for not being perfect. I'm willing to forgive folks for what I perceive as slights or trespasses. Every day is a new day. Every day is an opportunity to choose again, to refocus, to revisit the person I want to become, the joy of life. My heart is full of that right now. It feels good.
