Small things : No. 8

Number 8 off of the "10 small ways to make your life better in 2012list, which I posted towards the beginning of the year.

8. Forgive more. Holding onto anger, bitterness or regret only causes you pain. Try and believe that most people want to be good, but just may make bad choices sometimes.

So... Forgive more. This is something I'm working hard at currently. It's never easy to let go of the past and forgive, especially when it involves the people who may have said things that have hurt you.

I truly believe that life really is too short, things happen for a reason and you learn from the mistakes that hurt the most. So the quicker you learn to let go, the sooner you can start living your life wearing a big fat genuine smile and knowing you're strong enough to move on!

  1. Well said, Jo. I would also add that it is important to know how to forgive yourself in the same way. Make mistakes, learn from them and grow so that you can prevent yourself (and others) making the same mistake again. x
