Welcome to Day 16 of the 30 Days of Forgiveness.
Today starts the beginning of the third week of this series, and this week’s focus will be on forgiving others.
Hello, Dear One.
Life can be full of wonderful experiences, as well as, frustrations, and frustrations—as you already know—can vary wildly.
A friend of mine recently shared that several things had gone awry this year. He’d had some flooding in his space due to a leak in the flat above him. In addition to damage to his home, he an issue with his job and some health challenges. He was grappling with all of this occurring in a short period of time.
As he was sorting through everything, he’d learned that the person who lived above him was not legally responsible for the repair to his home. He was shocked to discovered he’d have to cover the damages!
At first he experienced a lot of anger. He was angry at the legal system in his country—feeling the laws were not written fairly. He also was angry at the person above him as he felt they should be responsible for the damage they had caused his home.
To top everything off, he was starting to experience some mold problems.
Things were piling up fast, and his mood was really suffering.
Over time he noticed the anger had started to wear him out. He was feeling exhausted all the time and confessed he’d reached a point where forgiveness seemed to be the next best step.
He got some much needed clarification from his job. He started to accept some of the changes in his health, and he was making progress on relocating to a place that would be a better fit for his life.
What frustration/s can you find in your own life that rob you of your precious time, energy, and money? Would forgiveness help?
Share what’s going on in your life, as well as, how you might use forgiveness to move into a better feeling place.
Alright, dear one. May you move toward peace as you let go of the things you do not control.
Again, I’d love to hear from you. Take a moment to share your experience on today’s contemplation by leaving a reply below.
Sending you lots of love.
