Thoughtful Mind 090818

I totally believe in the Power of Forgiveness. 

The night I forgave my adopted mother for all the years of abuse I suddenly felt very light and like I could float off the chair I was sitting in.   

There is that phrase – The Unbearable Lightness of Being [and in my opinion, the book as it actually plays out should really have had a different title, but then again, that is my opinion, not to be confused with other people’s opinions 🙂  ]. 

Well let me tell you, that night I had to really focus my mind on being able to stay on the chair – I felt so unbearably light – Light not only in the sense of feeling like I had just shed 30 lbs of weight, Light, not only in the sense that all of sudden the already well lit room got brighter and brighter and that brightness was about to fry my eyes, but unbearably light in the regard of being able to float in space. 

Every time I silently shouted in my head – I forgive you, I forgive you, I forgive you – I felt lighter and lighter.  I wanted to cry – the Joy I felt was so overwhelming. 

After that night, I more than walked forward.  I started charging through Life.  And I haven’t stopped since.  🙂

 

 “When you haven’t forgiven those who’ve hurt you, you turn your back against your future. When you do forgive, you start walking forward.”

― Tyler Perry
