The end of my marriage was very traumatic. I get divorced one year ago and since now I’m trying to move on. I can forgive in my mind, but not in my heart. I know that I have to let go of the past, and I want to do it, but its easier to say then to make it happens. I’m doing my best.
“When one door closes another door opens; but we so often look so long and so regretfully upon the closed door, that we do not see the ones which open for us.” – Alexander Graham Bell.
“Letting go doesn’t mean that you don’t care about someone anymore. It’s just realizing that the only person you really have control over is yourself.” ― Deborah Reber.
Today I bought new clothes and I went to body care spa. Sometimes I feel lazy, but I really want to improve my apearance and be more feminine.
“Forgiveness is not something we do for other pepople. We do it for ourselves to get well and move on”.
The Oxford English Dictionary defines forgiveness as ‘to grant free pardon and to give up all claim on account of an offense or debt’. I pray to Lord to help me to forgive. “Blessed are the merciful, for they will be shown mercy.” Matthew 5:7 (NIV). I found in Google this quote from Gandhi: “The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong.”. And I like this other too: “To forgive is to set a prisoner free and discover that the prisoner was you.”, from Lewis Smedes.
We have to invest time with our old friends to they became real friends. Share our life, our interests, our concernings. And mainly listen their concernings, their happiness, their interests.
Today I talk with some neigbors. I send a plate of soup for two of them. One couple invite me to go to the theater next weekend. Another woman invite me to walk in the beach with her every morning. I hope they become new friends very soon.
Today I went to the Music School and applied for exam. I did well in the praticce exam, not so good in the theory exam, but it was enough to be approved. Next week I will start level Basic 4. I’m very happy with the achievement!!!
Today I started a diet. It’s based in a program from a website that sales frost food for weigth loss. I hope to keep in this program until it ends and don’t be hungry. I wish to keep focused on my dream of become thin.
“Give up on yourself. Begin taking action now, while being neurotic or imperfect, or a procrastinator or unhealthy or lazy or any other label by which you inaccurately describe yourself. Go ahead and be the best imperfect person you can be and get started on those things you want to accomplish before you die.”—Shoma Morita, MD
