Forgive Who You Need To The Most, Yourself.

Today, is a day.

Well, obviously. BUT, woooot, what a day it is!

If you didn't know, today is World Chocolate day, Tell the Truth Day and Global Forgiveness Day.

Chocolate Day is a simple but sweet tribute to arguably the best creation in the world-chocolate.

It is also Global Forgiveness Day, if you do not know what that is, it is a day to forgive, and a day to be forgiven!

While I believe that chocolate should be celebrated every day and that it is imperative to tell the truth for healthy relationships and a healthy future, I feel that my time would be best spent talking about forgiveness today.

Who deserves forgiveness?

Well, for starters, you do. 

Life is not easy and at times we may not navigate it well. Whether it is due to past trauma, bad choices, or just an err in judgement, sometimes we ca…

Today’s post is a writing challenge. This is how it works: participating bloggers picked 4 – 6 words or short phrases for someone else to craft into a post. All words must be used at least once and all the posts will be unique as each writer has received their own set of words. That’s the challenge, here’s a fun twist; no one who’s participating knows who got their words and in what direction the writer will take them. Until now.
At the end of this post you’ll find links to the other blogs featuring this challenge. Check them all out, see what words they got and how they used them.

It really never bothered my mom that her romantic life wasn’t engaging. She was never truly heartbroken over a man or a relationship. My dad was a cheater and I was his middle child…but that disrupted his already made…
