Today I saw a status and the status was "To the past version of myself...I forgive you."
Initially when I saw the status, I was like "Forgive myself? But I didn't know any better."
Well....Sometimes I did know better, and even when I didn't know better, I need to forgive myself for not having that knowledge. The past year for me, has been filled with so many 'I wish' and 'What if' moments and it's because I haven't forgiven myself. I have to offer myself forgiveness, accept that forgiveness, and move forward.
"whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things." Philippians 4:8
Today I challenge you to forgive yourself, just as I am going to try to forgive myself. I forgive myself for allowing people to take advantage of me, for doubting my God given gifts, for not being obedient to God, for dwelling in anger and self-resentment, and anything else I'm harboring within for my own self.
Today I choose to forgive me!
