Forgiveness is... just letting it go!

For me Forgiveness has been a journey. Today you can forgive and tomorrow you can feel the pain all over again, so to speak. It requires focusing and dedication on my part even while feeling the pain. Yet, it is one of the greatest gifts worth striving for, one to give myself everyday and then pass on to others.
~Blessings,
