Second Chances (#9)

Second chances

Have you ever noticed that as soon as you make a mental declaration that you’ve conquered a situation for good or that you’ll never do “such and such” again – the universe promptly gives you an opportunity to prove it? For example, you vow that you will never again disclose private information about someone else and, soon after, you find yourself in a very tempting situation.

(I’ll talk more about that later.) I’ve been able to successfully apply this seemingly radical form of forgiveness in many situations in my life, resulting in tremendous inner peace. I’d like to boast that I’m getting better at it but there’s still this one relative (who lives very far away) that I mentally struggle with. That’s OK. I don’t have to interact with her very often. And I’m sure the universe will give me a chance to work it out when the time is right.

Let your spirit soar!
