Forgive Feelings

Caught up to today! Day 7 – Forgive Feelings. This meshes right in with my “aim to not complain” project. It’s not about squelching emotions. It’s about being aware when they begin, and find a way to aim that energy productively. If I sense myself starting to be cranky, I am mindful of it and […]

Forgive God / Spirit

Day 6 – Forgive God / Spirit / Cosmic Energy – This was easy for me. I tend to “blame” myself or other people – not outside forces. If there was a traffic jam or if I made a bad decision, it wouldn’t occur to me to blame any outside entity for what happened. If […]

Forgive your Father

Forgiveness Day 5 – Yes, Forgive your #Father :). Dads have all sorts of bizarre expectations laden on them in our society. Tough & Gentle. There was a great SuperBowl commercial about a father leaping to save his child from all sorts of wild dangerous situations. We are trained to expect fathers to be that […]

Forgive your Mother

Forgiveness Day 4 – Forgive your #Mother – I imagine all people have high expectations for moms. They’re only human :). To forgive is divine. I had my rebellious teen moments and my breaking-away young adult moments. Hopefully now I’m in a place where I understand she did the best she could and I didn’t […]

Forgive Your Life

#Forgiveness Day 3 = forgive your life. Interestingly, while Day 1 / yourself and Day 2 / body did bring up issues for me to work on, I’m fairly at peace with “life”. I used to have angst about not getting my degree / not going to MIT even though I got in. But now […]

Forgive Your Body

I’m reading a book on forgiveness, day by day. Day 2 on #Forgiveness was to forgive your body. Come to terms with the shape and size it is. Whatever it is, this is where you begin from. This is so important to me, running a low carb website and working with people who are inundated […]


Reading Forgiveness by Iyanla Vanzant – it’s a 21 day step by step approach to forgiving. An interesting, useful exercise to go through. It strongly encourages journaling every day as part of the process. Day 1 was about forgiving yourself for all the oh-so-human mistakes you might have made during life. We’re all human, we […]


A lovely yoga session with birds at the two feeders. I’m doing better at plank, too – I have 2 rounds of it during the sun salutations. Here’s my current routine: Forward Standing Section * Standing gently turning arm-flapping-like-open-coat-sleeves, 20 count, a la Kripalu. * Moon pose, left and right * Bend back, then bend […]
