Week 7 ~ Forgiveness… Love… Starting Over…

Forgiveness….. Love……. Starting Over……  I used to be a very hard, mean, and unhappy person. I was covered with alot of cement. I didn’t know who I was or what I wanted.

 Almost 20 years of diligent personal development later…. I feel I’m getting a grasp on it all.
Lucky for you if you were born happy and knowing what you want out of life! And yet I wouldn’t be who I am now.
So this week we started Scroll 2 in Og….
I greet this day with love in my heart. And how will I do this? Henceforth I look on all things with love and I am born again.
To see the good in everything. To choose to focus on what I want. To develop and practice habits that support who I am and what I want out of life.
And mostly, when I fall short…. to forgive myself. Not waiting till the need to forgive someone else…. that is pointless as I see it.
Forgiving myself for having the thought.
Forgiving myself for falling into the negative.
Forgiving myself for doing something other than my personal best.
And then rise up and move forward back into action they way I choose. The best version of me based on what I want out of life.
This song Rise Up sung by Andra Day hit me hard today. Not just because of the video story…. but because of my realization that forgiveness is something I do for me. Something I must do on a regular basis to rise up and get back on track with life.
Rise Up
You’re broken down and tired
Of living life on a merry go round
And you can’t find the fighter
But I see it in you so we gonna walk it out
And move mountains
We gonna walk it out
And move mountains
And I’ll rise up
I’ll rise like the day
I’ll rise up
I’ll rise unafraid
I’ll rise up
And I’ll do it a thousand times again
And I’ll rise up
High like the waves
I’ll rise up
In spite of the ache
I’ll rise up
And I’ll do it a thousands times again
For you
For you
For you
For you
When the silence isn’t quiet
And it feels like it’s getting hard to breathe
And I know you feel like dying
But I promise we’ll take the world to its feet
And move mountains
We’ll take it to its feet
And move mountains
And I’ll rise up
I’ll rise like the day
I’ll rise up
I’ll rise unafraid
I’ll rise up
And I’ll do it a thousand times again
For you
For you
For you
For you
All we need, all we need is hope
And for that we have each other
And for that we have each other
We will rise
We will rise
We’ll rise, oh oh
We’ll rise
I’ll rise up
Rise like the day
I’ll rise up
In spite of the ache
I will rise a thousands times again
And we’ll rise up
Rise like the waves
We’ll rise up
In spite of the ache
We’ll rise up
And we’ll do it a thousands times again
For you oh oh oh oh oh
