As I shared here recently on this new Bittersweet Year Blog and on my Sugar Shock Blog, lately, I've needed to take time to Take Back My Power and recover from a grueling, but tender Bittersweet Last Year with Mom. (My mother passed away recently after valiantly defeating stage 4 lung cancer for a year.)
Recently, I realized that to fully heal, I needed to do lots and lots of forgiving.
Anyhow, my forgiveness list is very, very long.
For instance, I need to forgive Mom for inadvertently being verbally abusive to me as the cancer was taking over her brain and body.
I need to forgive myself for not having moved across country sooner so I could be there for Mom. (First, I met contractual deadlines for my then upcoming book, Beyond Sugar Shock.)
I need to forgive the person(s) (was it a caregiver?) who stole or was given Mom's valuable watch, gorgeous diamond-and-sapphire earrings, and a beautiful diamond ring she always when we went to the opera together. (They had huge sentimental value to me.)
So who do you need to forgive? And what methods have you tried to forgive?
