The things that could break you,can also make you.
"Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world." ― Harriet Tubman. This week has been a challenge. I have doubted sharing my gifts with the world. In fact fear and doubt have stepped up to me and looked me in the eye. At that stage my gift had felt like a burden. My fear came up on me because of wanting to be all things to all people. Sharing my gift was born out of my own adversity. I say gift because I used it in my world to release my wounded 50 years of pain. My subject of forgiveness is not the most glamours conversations. And for many it still invokes pain. The clients that I have served and worked with, and the workshops that I have hosted over the years, have all taught and shown me the difference that I have made. I have witnessed the healing that it has made in many peoples lives. I have also become aware that life is like a buffet, and that we choose our own process of healing. Five months ago my mum passed away, and I was, and still am grateful for the gift of forgiveness between us. It had been a long drawn out battle between her and I for over 50 years. Today because of my own choice to forgive, I have no outstanding issues with my mum. Only what the journey of being given her as my mother has taught me. Yesterday my granddaughter was born and took her first breath almost next to the building where my mum took her last breath. In my minds eye I could see the bridge between the two building. I held my granddaughter in my arms and recognised because of my forgiveness towards her great grandmother, her legacy will not be inherited bitterness or pain. So now in essence I know that the things that challenge me, are the very things that give me strength and make me stronger. I will stand in my own authenticity and serve my true purpose that I have come on the planet to do. The journey might change, but the purpose never will. Ase
