NY-27, Gratitude Day five

I’m exhausted but want to take a moment to say that today I am grateful for forgiveness.  Every time someone says something which triggers a feeling of pain in me, I try to forgive them.  When I trigger pain in someone else, I hope they can forgive me.

But the forgiveness which I most need is forgiveness of myself.  I am grateful that I am learning to accept that there will be moments when my choice of behavior does not conform to my goal of meeting others’ needs; and I’m grateful that I’m learning to forgive myself and to allow myself to move forward.

Forgiveness carries me through some tough times.  I don’t excuse:  but I can forgive. And through forgiveness, I can find peace.
