Today is my Birthday! I’m so excited about life, it’s a blessing to be alive. Each chapter of my life I learn a new lesson. As I have grown older, I have learned that everyone deserves to be forgiven. I used to hold on to things I did, and things people did to me, but grudges are bad for your soul. When I held on to the things people did to me it only hurt me in the long run. Forgiveness truly is not for the person it’s for us. In life there may be times when people will not say sorry, or acknowledge that they did anything to you, but you must forgive them if you want to move on in your life. I had to accept that not everyone is going to apologize, and this was the most difficult part about forgiving someone, then I realized that I was not perfect.
In life people may hurt you but it’s what we do with that hurt that counts. Release any ill thoughts you may have against others because that is when you find true freedom. So, as I look back on my life and look forward to Chapter 31 I am proud to say that I am moving forward without any regrets and unforgiveness. I decided that this year was going to be my year and that will be how I live my life. Life is a celebration and I’m glad to be able to experience life for another day.
Happy Birthday to Me !
“At the end of the day, the fact we have the courage to still be standing is reason enough to celebrate.”
