"Write the bad things that are done to you in sand, but write the good things that happen to you on a piece of marble."
- Arabic Parable

Forgive and forget


We'll all been hurt at one time or another. Whether it was anyone's fault or one of life's unexplainable events, we've all got painful memories and emotions tucked away deep inside. While we certainly play a role in what happens in our lives, there are things we simply cannot control or prevent. To dwell on this, though, is to doom ourselves to a life of anger, bitterness and sadness. Letting go of past hurts is one of the most difficult acts we can ever carry out; but also the most liberating. It requires looking painful things directly in the eye, and asking ourselves this question: Will I let this destroy my happiness? Of course, we can't simply snap our fingers, and poof!, the hurt or sadness disappears. But we can make a conscious decision to take whatever steps we need to heal...and try to live in joy in the meantime. It sounds so simple, but how do we even begin to do this? The process of recovery varies from person to person and from situation to situation. For you, it might involve rebuilding a broken relationship, opening your heart to forgive someone, or going on your own inner journey to deal with emotional wounds. Regardless, it starts with a day-to-day decision to TRY. Tell yourself over and over that you WILL make it - because if you decide to heal, you will.
