Most people close to me with the exception of my Mother and Andrew, often wonder how I am able to Forgive the many offenses some individuals have inflicted on me.
I Forgive not for the offenders but for me. If I do not, then Hatred can develop!
A friend told me once, that if I ever get so mad at someone, the best way not hate, is to do something nice for that person...
You know something? It works!
There will always be people who will do things to hurt us either on purpose or unintentionally.
That is just how life goes!
It is up to Us to set them straight with words of wisdom and to follow it with Forgiveness.
Why should we Forgive? To Free ourselves from the wretched feelings of Hatred and Resentment.
Forgiveness allows us to Free our Minds from horrific thoughts of vengeance or remorse.
Forgiveness allows us to eradicate any Guilt, Shame and Fear.
Easier said than done! Forgiveness does not mean we must condone the offence.
The Offender must be held accountable, but no one has the right to Judge...
Only GOD has that Right!
We need to remember that each one of Us have done things to hurt others too.
None of us can claim Perfection!
Those who know no SIN and have never done any wrong may cast the first stone!
Think about it... Replace the Anger with Forgiveness and Love will win EVERY TIME!
PEACE TO ALL! :)

It is amazing how we all seem to take Life for granted. Although I am well aware of Death and have experienced so many in the past year or two, it is something I cannot seem to get used to! My Beloved friend Alan passed away last Aug 20th and after that, 3 other deaths of my beloved friends took place. Tomorrow, I have a funeral to attend once again and I am overwhelmed with grief!
Since the beginning of this year, I have had 5 death news which are enough to depress me to the max!
I know that Death is a part of Life and that we begin to die, the moment we are born!
I get saddened by how some live their lives without the thought of appreciating that God had given them LIFE. Life is not easy, Life is full of surprises and Life is meant to have a Purpose!
I believe that we need to Help others as much as we can with the Talents and Gifts that God endowed us with!
Why is it so tough for many NOT to be greedy? What good will you do with so much money and fame when you have no one to share it with, that you really care about and who cares about you?
YES...Money can buy everything! Temporal Health, Friends, Beauty and even Love.
Do Remember that we only have a certain amount of time alotted to us to be Alive.
WHAT WE WILL DO WITH THAT TIME CALLED 'LIFE' WILL DEPEND ON THE TRUE NATURE THAT WE HAVE SPIRITUALLY. Money and Beauty is but a vapor!
We should strive to make a positive difference in other people's lives, even if they are a stranger!
NEVER TAKE IT FOR GRANTED, THAT YOU WILL SEE THAT PERSON AGAIN AFTER YOU BID THEM GOOD BYE, SO PLEASE TAKE THE TIME AND TELL THE ONES YOU CARE ABOUT THAT YOU LOVE THEM... You might Not get another chance!
'PEACE' To all!
