***This is only helpful if you are willing to do a self-evaluation.***
Recently, I have been challenged by what I believe on so many levels. It’s been quiet an interesting few months. On every level I am forced to look at what I place value on, why I believe what I believe, and how I react to other’s behavior as much as my own.
I used to be so quick to point and place blame on individuals that cause me pain, that annoy me, and even those who simply irritate me. I usually don’t hold that same mirror up to myself. Well, let me tell you, the cost of holding the mirror up is priceless. You will turn that finger back at yourself if you are a humble person. If you are not a humble person you will continue to point at others and be humiliated.
I want to challenge you to just step outside of yourself for a moment. Step into another pair of shoes and really think about the mental, physical emotional, and spiritual state you are in when you do something and how the person receiving it may also be. It’s not ok for people to hurt anyone to hurt anyone, nor is it ok to also disregard their intentions.
Forgiveness is also a price we pay for peace of mind. Spend your time wisely you never get it back. Healing is wrapped in the forgiving and healing moments. Real life is happening to people behind their smile, their tears, their laughs their falling, and their flying. Be patient, be kind, be loving, be compassionate, be generous, and above anything just focus on helping yourself and others be ok!
