Butterflies are free

December 30, 2010

There is nothing like the holiday season to remind you about the value of forgiveness and how we chain ourselves to our hurt. I don’t think we even realize that we’re doing it – it just feels so comfortable and dammit – we earned the right! …….Or so we tell ourselves. But truthfully, we are only turning the key into the lock of pain’s prison and the funny part is that we are always in possession of that key – that key of redemption, that once we turn and open – butterflies rush out -reminding us that we are alive and that we can move forward.

What happened behind us – is indeed behind us. We have to let go because no matter how many ways we replay it in our minds  – what’s done is done and we can’t change it….there is no DeLorean coming for us – no way to go back and undo or redo….that vehicle left when it did and now we must move on -one step at a time – one foot in front of the other.

If you do nothing else this New Year…forgive – forgive others and most importantly – Forgive Yourself….I promise that you’ll feel better – you will come alive and realize that you’ve been asleep all this time…a thousand butterflies will fly out and you will know that you are free.
