Time to let go of the past

It's been a crazy week thus far.  Early Sunday evening I started to feel icky and have proceeded to be down and out with a stomach flu.  I missed two days of work and am now just started to re-enter the world of the living.  Still feel drained of energy, but slowly improving.

And it's Wishcasting Wednesday and today Jamie asks:


courtesy of we heart it

I wish to let go of the anger I've been carrying around.  For the longest time, I've become convinced that if I forgive that means that I'm okay with the bad things that were done to me, but it's more about accepting that it happened and letting it go.  I want to stop carrying around all this garbage in my head and heart even though the wounds are scarred over.  It's time to let myself off the hook and to let go of the past and focus on my now.

Letting go of anger is always better. I saw a picture recently of a sign that said anger is like letting someone live rent free in your head. Or maybe it was holding a grudge. Either way, it's a good choice of something to let go. As you wish for yourself, so I wish for you also.

That's a brave wish. Anger is powerful and I've never found it easy to give it up. As you wish for yourself, so I wish for you.

Oh, I can so relate to the feeling that letting go of anger somehow makes the action right. It is hard to move past that conviction, isn't it?

May you find the release and peace that you seek.

As you wish for yourself, so I wish for you also.

I saw a great comment somewhere recently that forgiveness is nothing to do with saying that what happened to us is OK, and EVERYTHING to do with refusing it the ability to keep hurting us any more.

May you find the release you seek - as you wish for yourself, so I wish for you
