Of all the noise, music, and words of the season I offer Hope & Healing readers these words:
Forgiveness or lack of Forgiveness often blocks moving forward both in our grief & healing as well as daily living.
Sometimes this is about Forgiving ourselves....sometimes Forgiveness is about Forgiving family or peers....sometimes Forgiveness is about Forgiving the one who died ("leaving me with the kids, bills, and no answers).
2. Grace: Each week someone in our work, civic, or family lives either does or does not do something that "is just not right." Grace is about letting at least some of these daily challenges go...We do not have to challenge every interaction or person. Grace can also be about deciding to stop self blaming or to lighten those internal critical voices.
3. Others: In so many ways this is indeed "the ME generation of time."
I am suggesting "the OTHER generation" for this season. The joy, the positive energy, the sense of Hope truly comes from seeing and supporting the OTHERS we may know or not know. This is a guaranteed win-win for you any day, every day,
So...Find the Christmas season words important to you....share with others. We at Hope & Healing are with you all the way, in every way.
