In Upbeat Livingsm, we take the heaviness out of life and accentuate ways to move forward with a light heart. That gives us the most energy, optimism, and vitality, for living the life we want. The secret? The top tool for lightening up is forgiveness.
Why forgive? Think of the people who deliberately hurt you. Feel your body tighten up? Now think of the people who ripped you off or treated you unfairly, from whatever period of your life. Feel yourself becoming tight and dense, even heavy? Now think of your ex or of people you dated who behaved outrageously. Perhaps they embarrassed you, were mean or unfair. Got the picture? Holding onto hurt feels bad! And the more committed you are to holding onto hurt and resentment, the more deeply that will embody and turn into illness and other physical ills.
So the reason to forgive is to release those feelings—for yourself! Yes, YOU are the reason to forgive. An old expression says, “Forgive and forget!” But that’s half the picture. It’s important not to forget that some people are dedicated takers and some are dedicated to hurting whoever they can. However, while forgiveness doesn’t change the past, it changes the future!
Do your best now to remember the facts but release the feelings. You deserve to live the best life you can. Lighten up with forgiveness! And now you’re in Upbeat Living.
