20140525-224220.jpgI really liked this mantra on liberation. It works by helping free us from negative emotions like fear, anger, etc. After mom’s visit to the ER, it helped a lot.

I have decided that it is time to write a letter of forgiveness to myself. I am ready to let go of things that I haven’t yet forgiven myself for–the stuff that has kept me a bit of a prisoner still inside.

I have been putting this off for a few weeks now, but tomorrow is my birthday and it’s time for a new beginning. So after I post this, I will continue to handwrite my letter of forgiveness–something long overdue, but truly needed to set myself completely free and to truly live my life fully…

I am grateful for the forgiveness process and for now being ready to forgive myself.

I truly feel that we are all connected, and we come into each other’s lives–however brief or through various mediums like WordPress–to encourage, inspire, or help each other.

I am grateful to Madhuri for sharing her post with me this morning using a technique in forgiveness I wrote about. She wrote about her experience with the process and how she felt afterwards. I am honored, but mostly, I am glad she found that it helped her as much as it helped me.

Thank you again, Madhuri!

Also, thank you to those who have touched my life here in WordPress. There are posts that have encouraged and inspired me. There are posts that have made my heart full and warm. There are posts that have helped me learn and grow. There are posts that have made me happy and more grateful. Thank you!

Prompt: Friday, January 24, 2014
Does pressure ever make you want to rebel and do the exact opposite of what is being asked of you?

Yes! I’m Aquarius! Just kidding, mostly…

I am working on this, but whenever something impinges on my freedom, my first inclination is to rebel (stand up for myself) or run away.

So when I am pressured to do something that I am not inclined to do, I think about what my lawyer dad told me as a kid which is to “choose your battles.” Sometimes you just need to do something you don’t like or want, even just to keep the peace. I do those as quickly as I can.
