It is of common practice that at the end of a year, people decide to make new year resolutions. Everyone jumps on the opportunity for a new start, to do things differently, and to be a better person.
I think it’s a beautiful thing to do.
I also think that this is a perfect time for reparations.
How many people did you write off this year?
How many people got on your “naughty” list?
How many people did YOU hurt? Take advantage of? Mentally, physically, and emotionally abuse?
How many people did you steal from? Lie to? Cheat on?
How many people did not feel love from you?
This IS the time to say,”I’m Sorry”.
Tomorrow is not promised to anyone. We are here today and gone tomorrow…just like that.
Two weeks ago, I was watching the news report on a fire that broke out in a home overnight, killing a mother and her 3 young children. I was deeply saddened by the news and I started to think.
That night, that mother probably put her kids into bed. Tucked them in, kissed them goodnight and said,”I’ll see you in the morning”. She probably had great plans for her children for the next day. Unfortunately, the next day never came. The children were probably all excited for winter break, and Christmas presents they were likely to receive… but their morning never arrived.
Your tomorrow is NOT promised.
Therefore, TODAY is your opportunity to get things right. Say I’m sorry to those people who you’ve hurt, or if you didn’t “hurt anybody”… it’s time to forgive those who hurt you.
The message is “Clear As Glass”…
Say I’m sorry, forgive, and love.
After that, you can power into the new year, being a new person, leaving 2017’s baggage right there where it belongs in 2017 and start 2018 with a clean, fresh slate.
If there is anyone that I hurt, took advantage of, or mistreated, I’m Sorry. I never intentionally sought to hurt anyone, so if I did, please forgive me.
For those who have hurt me, you’re already forgiven. Life is too short to allow stress to weigh me down. I choose to love and be free.
I love you all!!
Let’s make 2018 a great year!
~Love is the answer
