THE PERILS OF “UNFORGIVENESS”

When forgiving is hard…

Pearls of Our Lives

FORGIVENESS

Forgiving seems like the hardest thing that we can do sometimes, however it’s one of the greatest gifts we can give ourselves.

Lack of forgiveness is an emotional state of mind that keeps us bound and chained to memories of the pain, hurt, anger, disappointment, hatred, and other negative emotions caused by someone. We can also have these feelings towards people, an institution, a whole race of people and much more.

When we hang on to the pain, anger, hurt, disappointment of things or people for days, months, years, decades, what are we really hanging on to? Is it that somehow we feel a strange sweetness knowing that at least we feel something? Do we derive pleasure after a while from knowing or telling ourselves that someone, something, people deserve to suffer and somehow we project this energy hoping they really do? Or are we actually hoping that these feelings will one…

TRUTH

Looking back at Truth

Pearls of Our Lives

Wherever your truth is, therein lies half your battle done.  There are times in our lives when our most truthful moment comes when we stare at our reflection in the mirror, not for the purpose of admiring what we see, or to criticize what we see, or one final glance at our mask before we step out into the world. I’m talking about looking in the mirror and making eye contact with the eyes that stare back at you. Try this, see if you last 60 seconds, ……….what did you experience? Did you take it for granted that you always knew what you just experienced?

The experiences we go through as night turns to day and day to night, provide the substance for the work. As we navigate the substance of... Continue Reading →

NO COMPLAINTS – GET UP WITH PURPOSE

So what's the plan for today, the week? Another session of whining and complaining about how early you have to wake up for work, school, and other important duties? Or the headache from the Sunday hangover, or late night sleep? I say wake up with thankfulness on thy lips, jump up for joy that you... Continue Reading →

Love, Despite

Tell It Slant Mama

 Before I married my husband, I told him to make sure that he was marrying me for who I was that day, and not for any future changes he hoped to have wrought in me through the “transforming” power of marriage. Though we were both young, I had seen enough unhappy marriages to make me wary of the institution, and who wants to be institutionalized, really?  I had no question that I wanted to spend the rest of my life with him, but I wanted us to start off with as little illusion as possible.  I wanted to know that he saw me, and not some airbrushed version of a girl to be placed on a pedestal.  It is easy to fall in love if you believe all the fairy tales and movies.  Beautiful women with flowing hair and flawless skin meet muscled men with pure hearts and chivalrous intentions and they ride off to his manor with servants aplenty…
