Forgiveness: The Priceless Gift You can Give for Free

One of the things I’ve noticed about people in general is that they’re too darned hard on themselves. I see so many good people who don’t even know how good they are. They carry bags of guilt with them, filled to the brim, day in and day out, expending precious energy. Their internal dialog is critical far to often. I said if you talked to your friends the way you talk to yourself you probably wouldn’t have any friends!

Perhaps you haven’t cared for your body the way you feel you could have or should have. Perhaps you’ve broken self-promises. Perhaps you’ve let yourself down. If so, you’re not alone. Virtually everyone has felt like that at some point. But you don’t have to let that stop you. The past does not equal the future if you don’t want it to. The key is to forgive and let go of what might be holding you back. Resolve to learn from the past and vow to do better… start by taking good care of your health right now and on into the future. Drop that baggage and move forward! ~Bill Phillips
