The Seven Decisions - Number 6

A note from for Monday September 29 2008

Bid hello to another brand spanking new week.

The Andy Andrew’s event seems to be hitting it all right on the mark. It doesn’t matter what is going on in life, Andy has an amazing way of bringing us all back to a nice centered place.

Let’s get right to it on this very sparkling Monday with Decision number 6.

Also, check out what our friends over at Daily Insight are doing to get their week up and running!

6. I Will Greet This Day With A Forgiving Spirit - I will forgive myself

The forgiveness that I hoarded has sprouted inside my heart like a crippled seed yielding bitter fruit. No more! At this moment, my life has taken on new hope and assurance. Of all the world population, I am one of the few possessors of the secret to dissipating anger and resentment. I now understand that forgiveness has value only when given away. By the simple act of granting forgiveness, I release the demons of the past about which I can do nothing, and I create in myself a new heart, a new beginning.

I will greet this day with a forgiving heart! I will forgive even those who do not ask for forgiveness. I have wasted valuable hours imagining revenge or confrontation with people who said negative or harmful things about me. I will now and forevermore silently offer my forgiveness even to those who do not see that they need it. By the act of forgiving, I am no longer consumed by unproductive thoughts. I give up my bitterness and am content in my soul and effective again with my fellow man.

Know that the person who lives a life according to the opinion of others is a slave, I am not a slave! I know the difference between right and wrong. Those who are critical of my goals and dreams simply do not understand the higher purpose to which I have been called. Therefore, their scorn does not affect my attitude or action. I forgive their lack of vision. I realize today that it is impossible to fight an enemy living in my head. By forgiving myself, I erase the doubts, fears, and frustrations that have kept my past in the present. From this day forward, my history will cease to control my destiny. I have forgiven myself. My life has just begun!

I Will Forgive Even Those Who Do Not Ask For Forgiveness!
I Will Forgive Those Who Criticize Me Unjustly!
I Will Forgive Myself!

I Will Greet This Day With A Forgiving Spirit!
