Forgiveness
 Attitude is all about CHOICE!
 
We all as humans crate our own reality, circumstances by the choices that we make and the choices that we make are fueled by our own thoughts so our thoughts are the most powerful think we have and based upon what we think determines who we are and we attract who we attract who we are into our lives.
 
 To win the battle of life,
 One needs weapons like compassion & forgiveness.
 
 It starts with FORGIVENESS...
 Let Go...of your thoughts, anger, job, etc...
 
Forgiveness is freeing up and putting to better use the energy once consumed by holding grudges, harboring resentments, and nursing unhealed wounds. It is rediscovering the strengths we always had and relocating our limitless capacity to understand and accept other people and ourselves.
 
 Free yourself for what is to come. Do not let your past define you.  I am not very good at listening to 'stories.' "This is what happen to me"... yada, yada.
 
 I believe it's keeping you where you are. It doesn't mean it didn't happen. It doesn't mean they were right, it means you are willing to let it be a part of history...to let go!
 
 What is forgiveness?
 There's no one definition of forgiveness. But in general, forgiveness is a decision to let go of resentments and thoughts of revenge. This can reduce the power these feelings otherwise have over you, so that you can a live freer and happier life in the present. Forgiveness can even lead to feelings of understanding, empathy and compassion for the one who hurt you.
 
 Doesn't forgiving someone mean you're forgetting or condoning what happened?
 Absolutely not! Forgiving isn't the same as forgetting what happened to you. The act that hurt or offended you may always remain a part of your life. But forgiveness can lessen its grip on you and help you focus on other, positive parts of your life. Forgiveness also doesn't mean that you deny the other person's responsibility for hurting you, and it doesn't minimize or justify the wrong. You can forgive the person without excusing the act.
 
 Say...Thank you for giving me that experience. Those experiences are a part of you. It's your job to learn how to love yourself, regardless of what has happened. It's about shifting form all those places of negativity to possibility.
 
 I've lived in those dark places. Do I slip up? You bet!  That is when perspective and gratitude comes in or it should!  Gratitude is absolutely the way to bring more into life. Be grateful for what you have now. As you begin to think about all the things in your life you are grateful for, you will be amazed at the never-ending thoughts that come back to you of more things to be grateful for.
 
 "The daily practice of gratitude is one of the conduits by which your wealth will come to you." 
 
 Live passionately... what else have you got to do!
