Morning Cup of Joe – Moving On

20130719-070003.jpg

The motivation behind this message is a text my sister sent to my entire family. At first, I didn’t know the basis behind her text but she later shared. She mentioned how a co-worker of hers had passed on unexpectedly and how important it was to forgive. The message read “If you have anyone you know you’re holding a grudge against, please let it go and forgive them.”

We all have someone or some past event that is adding extra weight to our lives due to the fact that we have not forgiven them. It is critically important that you learn how to forgive and forget in order to move forward. If you do not forgive someone who has done you wrong or mistreated you in the past, you will continue to be stagnant. You cannot turn to a new chapter if you haven’t read the previous one completely. Simply, you cannot fully move on with your life if you haven’t determined nor completely dealt with what has been holding you back in the first place.

One of the most difficult things to do in life is to forgive. Once you build up enough nerve to forgive someone, only then can you start living a more free & fruitful life. Some folks may argue that forgetting is much easier then forgiving and I would absolutely agree with that. However, forgetting takes no effort and the issue still has not been resolved. You can forgive someone and they never even know about it. You can forgive by choosing to let go of the past and forgiving all those who have trespassed against you.

The reason why you have not reached the next level is because you are holding on to the memory of someone from your past who has done you wrong. Let go of that right now today. Forgive them for their wrong doings. Forgive all those people who came in and out of your life and added no value. Forgive everyone who thought you would never amount to anything. Forgive those people who didn’t realize how special you truly are. Forgive and find that a more fruitful life awaits you.

Some people may say that there are certain things that are unforgivable. I disagree completely. There are certain things that may seem unforgivable, but your heart should never be one of those. Choose forgiveness today.

Morning Cup of Joe – It’s About Forgiveness

We have all been hurt before. We have all felt the pain of a broken heart. We have all been in situations where there was complete disregard for our feelings. Conversely, we have all been on the other side of that coin where we have hurt someone. In addition, during an argument there have been times where we were so upset that we did not care to consider the other persons emotional state. We were trusted with a delicate and precious heart yet we still managed to break it. Overall, how we choose to respond in circumstances like these is essential to our growth and development as individuals.

Some people hold on to negative memories. Some people choose not to move pass the past. Holding on to negative memories is like taking small doses of poison each day; you may not die immediately but eventually the poison will become too toxic to bear. Overtime, those types of memories tend to weigh you down tremendously preventing you from moving forward. I know it may seem impossible, especially after a recent disagreement, argument or falling out but do your very best to let it go.

Some of the people who hurt us the most are the ones we never expect to. Some of them are individuals who are closest to us. This makes sense because those who are the closest to us have greater and readily access to our heart strings. Who cares what a stranger thinks of you? The greatest impact comes from the ones we love because they have been trusted with the care of our delicate hearts. The expectation is mutual.

If you want to be a better communicator and show that you care, then the first thing you must do is meet people where they are. Simply put yourself in their shoes before you choose to respond to a particular situation. Next, listen before you speak. You have two ears and one mouth because you are expected to listen twice as much as you speak. You must also act rather than react. Oftentimes when we feel hurt we enter into a reactionary mode when we should be thinking about how our actions can foster a better more fruitful relationship. Lastly, forgive. Not just think or say it but truly forgive. You will know you have forgiven someone when you can think about them or how they’ve hurt you and you no longer hold grudges nor harbor negative feelings toward them. That’s true forgiveness.

Although it can be challenging to forget how someone has hurt you, it is imperative that you forgive them.
