My last weekly wish was about cleaning my plate – getting back to whole foods that make me feel good. I did pretty well, thanks to the variety in my CSA vegetables, shopping alone, and taking a few minutes to cook for myself most days. I did go all out at my twins’ fourth birthday party, but how could I not? I hope to never sound food judgy – those who know me know I love birthday cake. Or any cake really.
This week’s wish is a little more tender. I recently reconciled with someone who really let me down. I still think it was hurtful – I haven’t changed my mind about that. But I decided it’s more important to have peace and communication rather than shutting them out. It made me think about reconciling, and how little I’ve tried to do that. I do tend to make assumptions about people based on the past. But now something feels different. Maybe it’s maturity, maybe it’s the confidence of motherhood, but I am seeing my role in conflict and the power of forgiveness.
So this week’s wish is to try to reconcile some relationships that ended over things that are not so important anymore, and do my part to forgive even when nothing has changed, except me.
How about you? How do you feel about forgiveness?
