Birthday Celebration: Forgive

Denise
hyacinth-747157_640Every day this week, we’re celebrating Caregiving.com’s 19th birthday with activities and prizes.

Today, we’re breaking to disrupt our life with forgiveness.

I think we all carry a regret or a shame. Maybe it’s not something we think about every day or every week, but once in awhile, the memory comes up. And, we can feel that memory begin to control who we are. The memory haunts, belittles, controls. It’s awful.

So, today, let’s forgive ourselves for what we we wish we would have done differently or better or not at all. Let’s disrupt our lives by being to kind to ourselves, by realizing we’re doing the best we can and by letting a second chance, rather than a past regret, rule our day.

Here’s mine: I forgive myself for sometimes coming up short because I'm just trying to do too much.

Share your forgiveness in our comments section, below. I’ll choose a random winner to receive a $10 Amazon.com gift card. When you post a comment today, you’ll also be entered to win our grand prize of $100 cash.

Today, let’s forgive.
