“Never does the human soul appear so strong as when it forgoes revenge, and dare forgive an injury.”- Edwin Hubbell Chapin, preacher

Forgiveness is freedom. When you forgive who hurt you, you are free. The other person is free, too.

Forgiveness is healing. When you forgive who hurt you, you are healing from the pain. You are healing from the past. You are healing into the present.

But one thing is clear: forgiveness is a hard thing to do, but if you can do it, you will be free forever. If you find yourself struggling to forgive someone, you are not alone. We are all in it together.

People find it difficult to forgive because they can’t let go of the feeling of resentment. They can’t forget the past. They think they are letting the person go unpunished.

Forgiveness does not mean that you are letting the person who hurt you go unpunished. It means you are letting yourself off the pain of the past. It means you are freeing yourself from bondage. It means you are now a mature person, meaning you are bigger than the person who hurt you.

Forgiveness is your choice. It is a choice between staying in the past or moving forward. It is a choice between letting go or continue to live in pain. It is a choice between being a victim or a victor. Forgiveness takes time. It is a process. Don’t rush into it. Take your time to forgive and forget.

Forgiveness is letting go of the past. If you let go of the past, if you forget the past, then you can focus on the moment. But if you keep living in the past, if you keep dwelling on what happened yesterday, you will miss what is happening right now. Don’t let resentment steal your happiness away from you. Don’t let resentment steal your destiny away from you. Resentment is toxic. It is worse than cancer. Resentment allows us to continually live in pain. Resentment is dangerous to your health and well-being, so get rid of it.

Reinhold Niebuhr, theologian, said, “Forgiveness is the final form of love.” You cannot love someone unless you have forgiven him or her. Forgiveness is hard, but if you can do it, you are free forever. Enjoy your freedom!

What is gratitude? What does it mean to you? How do you express gratitude in life?

Gratitude is life. Gratitude means different things to different people. To some people, gratitude is just being alive. To others, it means enjoying what they have.

According to Melody Beattie, “Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow.”

Karl Barth said, “Joy is the simplest form of gratitude.”

Celebrate what is working for you. It is a miracle to be alive today. If you are alive, you should celebrate your life. Don’t wait until tomorrow to appreciate your life. Start it today. People are not happy because they don’t appreciate their lives enough. They focus on what is not working, instead of celebrating what is working for them.

Don’t focus on what you don’t have. Celebrate what you have and what you don’t have. What you don’t have will come to you when you appreciate what you have. You must develop an attitude of gratitude. If you don’t appreciate what you have, how do you expect to receive more?

Develop an attitude of gratitude. The more you appreciate what you have, the more you will attract into your life. No matter what is going on in your life today, always appreciate what you have. Don’t focus on what is not working, focus on what is working. Henry Van Dyke said, “Be glad of life because it gives you the chance to love, to work, to play, and look up at the stars.”

Keep a gratitude journal. It is important to keep a gratitude journal for reflection. When you keep a detailed record of what people have done for you, it helps you go through the difficult times in your life. It helps you focus on your life, on what is working, on how special you are, on how grateful you are for what you have. Writing down things help you remember the good and bad times in your life. To remember the good times, keep a gratitude journal.
