I earned some bonuses through work in the form of Amazon gift cards. So I ordered a bunch of stuff and spent a lot on myself.
Yes you see some “Crocs like” shoes there because I wanted some. The rest are CPAP supplies that I need to help me sleep at night. This is the practical stuff I ordered. In Part 2 there will be some fun stuff. It was nice to get some parcels in the post instead of bills and junk mail.
Fear keeps us focused on the past or worried about the future. If we can acknowledge our fear, we can realize that right now we are okay. Right now, today, we are still alive, and our bodies are working marvelously. Our eyes can still see the beautiful sky. Our ears can still hear the voices of our loved ones.
Forgiveness is hard. Sometimes forgiving someone is more of a journey and doesn’t happen instantly. Forgiving doesn’t always mean forgetting. We all have experiences where we are deeply hurt and we cannot forgive and that’s a very human thing. To err is human and to forgive is divine as the old saying goes. Reconciliation is a good thing but in some instances may never happen.
Right now some people have been harmed to the point where forgiveness is the furthest thing from their minds let alone their hearts. I know I am not perfect and I have made my share of mistakes and all can say is that forgiveness is a gift and it’s a hard thing to give.
