A gift worth striving for

This Christmas give yourself a gift beyond measure. Forgive those who have wronged you. Not just for the day, but forever. Let it go, the anger, the hurt you’ve been lugging around. It’s expending far too much of your focus and energy. The “let it go” part is the most crucial. Burying it only until “next time” isn’t forgiveness at all. And you won’t experience the freeing power that comes from truly moving on. If what I ask seems too unfair for what has happened to you, remember you are not perfect. We all have hurt others, whether by omission or on purpose, being forgiven is the only way to ease the guilt of our actions. But we can’t control others, only ourselves. So start from within, and I promise the power will spread throughout.
