You will notice that this week’s posts are going to be organized in a different manner than what I was doing. Previously I was publishing sporadically with either lots of blog posts, or long durations between publication dates. My goal is to aim for publication on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Each day will revolve around a different theme.
There was a point about two weeks ago where I was thinking about deleting my blog posts, and starting fresh or taking a long break from blogging. I’m not the same person that I was in 2012, so it makes sense that my creative outlet would transform too. A reader sent me an email two weeks ago that prompted me to give the blog another look. She said how she could see how healing it is to connect to others. That was the core reason why I started writing on WordPress about healing, spirituality, love and connection in the first place.
My upcoming posts will be revolving around the content about those topics. If you enjoy what I write then please share my posts via social media, such as, Twitter and Facebook. Whether you are sitting on the bus or in a cafe sipping coffee; I am certain someone near you has known heart break. We hold space for others to be their authentic selves, and to remember their wholeness by expressing the truth of our personal journeys.
What I will be doing on Monday is to write a reflection to start the week based on drawing an oracle card, or a spiritual quotation. I drew the card “Forgiveness” from the Healing with the Angels oracle deck by Doreen Virtue.
“Let go of anger and resentment, and feel yourself healed. You don’t need to forgive the action, just the person, so that you can be at peace.” (Virtue p. 21).
We all face times where someone has said or done something that hurt us. If we are unforgiving then we can slowly poison ourselves with anger and resentment. It takes great strength to forgive someone even if an apology is never received. There are times where I didn’t deserve forgiveness and have received it, so why not give someone else the gift of grace. Forgiveness is a great act of unconditional love. It is also one of the most challenging to do.
It is an even greater act of self love to forgive yourself when you have done or said wrong to others. There is something beautiful when someone tries to right their mistakes and start over. Perhaps we need to show compassion to those who are trying to better themselves . We are imperfect human beings trying to bumble our way through this existence.
Wishing all of you a blessed week,
