Another Wednesday means another chance to draw a card from my Grateful AF deck and see what it wants me to appreciate today.
This same idea keeps coming at me from all directions. And I'm okay with that, because it is so important and impactful. Forgiveness has the power to change lives.
Over the last several months, I've experienced both sides of the forgiveness coin. I've forgiven someone who was truly toxic for me. I'm forgiven several others for slights before they festered to the point of affecting our friendships, and I have been on the receiving end after my own screw-ups.
And every bit of it feels good. I have zero regrets for extending forgiveness to others and for asking for it myself. I finally feel like my head and my heart are both free and clear to focus on better and brighter things instead of staying mired in anger. It's amazing how life can open up when you're looking ahead at the possible instead of behind you at the pain. Forgiveness is a gift that keeps on giving.
And for all of that, yes, I am grateful AF.
