There's something about forgiveness that is blissful. It's that expanding of your heart, character, integrity and capacity for love that is so heady and intoxicating.
Forgiveness has been hovering, shaking, aimed at my heart like the point of an arrow on a bow that's stretched to capacity. It's felt ominous and inescapable lately. I've tried to stave it off with righteousness and outrage and anger...unsuccessfully.
If I would have known it would feel like this, I would have surrendered much earlier.
When I forgave YOU, you lost every iota of power you have or ever had over me. That was intoxicating.
When I forgave ME, I gained every ounce of power in all the galaxies combined. That is fortifying and liberating.
My heart is peace~full and my past mistakes no longer define me...those stories are about some other person in some other time, surviving as best as she could. I've nurtured that girl and loved her into evolving so far past what she was and the mistakes that were hers to make.
I highly recommend it. Nurture. Love. Forgive. Evolve. Rinse. Repeat.
