Hard to believe but you have completed the first week of Lenten Season – Congratulations. If you’ve stuck to your discipline – great. If you’ve already slipped, don’t worry – get back on the horse, forgive yourself because the only other person who needs to forgive you already has – God. If you haven’t quite figured out this whole Lenten thing yet, join in.
Speaking of forgiveness, Lent is a new beginning for us all and what a better way to begin Lent than by forgiving yourself and forgiving any and every one you think you need to forgive. Sit down in a quiet place and let it all go. Every day you fail to forgive is like taking a glass of bitter medicine you don’t need and does you a lot more harm than good. If you down a whole bottle of wine and eat a box of chocolates, but let all that anger, bitterness, and hatred that comes with failure to forgive out — you’ve had a great beginning to Lent. You will feel like you’ve just worked out for hours with Jane Fonda and dropped fifteen pounds, and in a way you have. Forgiveness is the best diet ever invented. Begin with your self – let go of all the would’ve’s, should’ve’s and could’ve’s. Then go down that list of friends, family, co-workers, classmates, and yes, enemies and forgive them all. It will be like you’ve dipped yourself in magic waters.
