I’m taking on the Forgiveness Challenge offered for free by Desmond & Mpho Tutu. For the next 30 days I will journey along the Fourfold Path of forgiveness —Telling the Story; Naming the Hurt; Granting Forgiveness; and Renewing or Releasing the Relationship. Day 1 begins with three invitations.
1. Invitation to Heal
When you have been hurt, one of the most powerful ways to experience healing is to forgive. Until we can forgive, we remain locked in our pain, imprisoned by our experiences, and locked out of the possibility of healing. When we forgive we take back control of our own fate and of our feelings. We invite you on this journey to heal.
2. Invitation to Freedom
When you forgive, you are free to grow, to move on in life, and to no longer be a victim. We invite you to know the freedom that comes from walking the Fourfold Path.
3. Invitation to Peace
Forgiveness opens the door to peace between people and opens the space for peace within each person. We all want peace, for ourselves and for our world. We invite you to welcome a new peace in your life.
What you I want to get out of the 30-day challenge?
I want to be able to let go and live life on life’s terms as I experience the good and bad. I want to feel and grow as I experience the beauty of living a peaceful and happy life. I want to be compassionate and happy.
