In October, our action word is Understand.
When you walk down the path of forgiveness, you gain an understanding. You understand another–their perspective, their baggage, their reasons. More importantly, you understand yourself. We started the process of forgiveness during September to be ready for the holidays. The understanding you gain will also help you during the holidays.
For me, I’m going to understand:
1. My mother better. I know her, but sometimes I don’t quite understand her. I’d like to.
2. What pushes my button. I’d like to better understand why I get aggravated and irritated when I do. When I understand, I will communicate more effectively to avoid the button pushing.
Please share your commitments in October in our comments section, below.
