The refreshing power of forgiveness

…Forgiveness….

Forgiveness is one of my favorite virtues to talk about… (And I know I say that for every virtue…) Well gratitude is my favorite and most applied virtue, but that doesn’t change or lower the importance of forgiveness.

Forgiveness can move mountains! #facts

I know that personally I’ve been able to overcome monumental obstacles simply by using forgiveness in an authenthic and genuine way. I know a lot of people talk forgiveness, but very few live it… (Myself included #exposed) It’s not easy to forgive! (especially if you KNOW you’re right!)

The thing is, Forgiveness is probably one of the most important things you can learn in your life. REALLY REALLY REALLY. I know i already said that but i’ll say it many more times.

To better put things in perspective i’ll use a quote that I’ve carried with me for the better part of my adult life… That phrase set me free while filling me with hope, peace, (shame {temporarily}) and understanding. That phrase is this…

“Holding on to anger is like grasping a hot coal with the intent of throwing it at someone else; you are the one who gets burned.” – Buddha

Often times when you have anger for someone or someTHING. That anger will burn you way before it ever reaches it’s target…

So guess what?

Forgiveness is the fire extinguisher to those oh so hot situations.

Forgiveness is the key to it all!
In a peaceful mind and heart, forgiveness replaces vengence, hatred, and envy while adding respect, clarity, and peace of mind. All the pain, heartache, and anger you have is immediately wiped clean by forgiveness….

You don’t do it to appease your enemy you do it for us all…

That’s the power of Forgiveness

Some questions to ask yourself…

Who am I holding a grudge against?

What do I achieve by holding on to my anger?

When can I gain if I let the anger go?

Use these question to add greater direction and insight to your internal compass.
