As we approach what is so often referred to as “The Golden Years” and the end of this lifetime for many is closer than ever, what is the appropriate way of viewing and reflecting on the events that have shaped the corse of our life’s journey? Do we relish in what we did or what we didn’t do? Do we continue to blame others for the outcome of certain situations that left us wanting and confused?
It’s said the key to true happiness and a peaceful death is forgiveness, yet for so many that’s just not possible! The concept of forgiveness means surrendering or giving in to a stance they truly do not believe in. If a standard has been breeched its considered unforgivable and the act lives on throughout a lifetime.
It is very possible to forgive, and perhaps it’s the forgetting that is harder to let go of. The past has no power except that in which our thoughts give it. To truly love someone is accepting who they are even if you do not approve of the way they conduct their lives. Each one of us has obstacles to overcome and make choices over. Bad choices doe not mean they are bad people, they just did what they thought was best at the time.
For many letting go of resentment means they may have to focus more time and attention on themselves. Perhaps the concept that someone is only fifty percent of the problem concerning the dilemma is just not acceptable, the need to be right over shadows any possibility of love and understanding.
Birth and death are the boundaries set in which the game of life is played. Some people just need to win no matter how they overlook the one very important thing, we will all be judged in the end so why not just enjoy the beauty all around including the people in it.
We are all unique and embark on journeys that are truly our own, the one thing that allows for a smoother ride is knowing you can depend on those you love. No matter how many times it takes someone to get it eventually they will, and what a celebration that is. The only ones not celebrating are the ones who refuse to forgive, and they are the true looser in the game of life.
Live each day in gratitude and love so you may exit this life with grace and dignity, love allows us to be humble for it is the only thing that really matters.
