“Forgive yourself first. Release the need to replay a negative situation over and over again in your mind. Don’t become a hostage to your past by always reviewing and reliving your mistakes. Don’t remind yourself of what should have, could have or would have been. Release and let it go. Move on.”— Les Brown
This seems like a very good way to start the December Wishes series. Because December is crazy and mistakes are going to happen. It will not be as jolly as we want it to be. It will be hectic and insane. Our kids or parents or friends aren’t going to react the way we want them to, to the things we think they’ll love. We will revisit old hurts and mourn how things turned out.
And it’s all okay. We are going to forgive ourselves for any missteps and move on. This month is too short for all that nonsense anyway.
