“To forgive is the highest, most beautiful form of love. In return, you will receive untold peace and happiness“ – Robert Muller
During the Jewish High Holidays, the ten days between Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur, we ask those we have offended or wronged during the year for forgiveness.
Allowing forgiveness into your life not only expands the possibilities in your life, it also expands the possibilities of what you might allow yourself to believe is possible.
When asking for forgiveness we must make sure to put ourselves first on the list. The kindest and most compassionate thing we can do is to forgive ourselves. This year I will be pardoning myself for treating my body badly at times, for not looking at myself with the objective eye that I deserve and I’ll be thanking myself for taking the steps I have taken so far in order to love myself and celebrate my life.
Whether you celebrate the High Holidays or not, I encourage you to give yourself the ultimate gift, the gift of forgiveness.
