QUOTES from the Sandbox ~ Wednesday, July 31, 2019

By
Real Estate Agent with TEAMCONNECT REALTY - (407) 394-9766

Hi Everyone!  Today I have chosen a theme of quotes on/of 'forgiveness.' Yes,
I do remember the years where I had a problem with this...As some of you
know I started my studies in Astrology back in the late 60's...I have a strong
Mars planet in the sign of Scorpio - in the past I had difficulty with this 'thing'
called forgiveness... True like a Scorpion, if you didn't worship at my altar, you
were out of my 'circle.'  I just placed you outside, never to return again :) 
Heaven forbid if you made errors and offended me:)
 
However, that is Scorpio, not yet grown and evolved.  I am older now and I
can truthfully say, gone is my altar, gone is the circle, and I still wonder why
I even had a problem understanding love conquers everything - forgiveness
is a thing of the past.  I can work at forgiving myself, but I can look at a
relationship situation and in the majority of daily incidences, ' Just Let It Go.' 
The miracle thing I found, is it is so easy AND you feel so good when you
realize the negative hold it no longer has on you.  Just don't waste a moment
of your precious time on earth with the negativity when happiness and joy is
just around the corner.

Recently I am aware of some around me that are challenged in this area and
in seemingly every day issues of no value.  Yup, I am older now, and I had to
learn the hard way  -  on some of these battlefields, it is not worth the fight.
Let it go and you will be amazed how great you feel.  As we have all read, 
Love does win out in the end and if that does not say it than perhaps
this may:  Life is too short for  battles of no value!

"I believe forgiveness is the best form of love in any relationship.  It takes
a strong person to say they're sorry and an even stronger person to forgive."
                                                                                                    ~Yolanda Hadid

"He that cannot forgive others, breaks the bridge over which he himself must
pass if he would ever reach heaven;  for everyone has need to be forgiven."
                                                                                                   ~George Herbert

"The weak can never forgive.  Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong."
                                                                                                    ~Mahatma Gandhi

"The most important thing that I learned in growing up is that forgiveness is
something that, when you do it, you free yourself to move on."
                                                                                                            ~Tyler Perry

"We think that forgiveness is weakness, but it's absolutely not;  it take a very
strong person to forgive."                                                               ~T.D. Jakes

"Forgiveness is the fragrance that the violet sheds on the heel that has
crushed it."                                                                                     ~Mark Twain

"Because forgiveness is like this:  a room can be dark because you have closed
the windows, you closed the curtains.  But the sun is shining outside, and the
air is fresh outside.  In order to get that fresh air, you have to get up and open
the window and draw the curtain apart."                                    ~Desmond Tuto

"Forgiveness isn't just a blessing you deliver to another human being.
  Forgiveness is also a gift you give yourself."                         ~Robin S. Sharma

"It's one of the greatest gifts you can give yourself, to forgive. 
  Forgive everybody."                                                                ~Maya Angelou

"It's not an easy journey, to get to a place where you forgive people.
  But it is such a powerful place, because it frees you."                     ~Tyler Perry

"To err is human;  to forgive, divine."                                      ~Alexander Pope

Hello Jane - thank you for including some background before introducing your selection of quotes.  Each is a good one but this one by Tyler Perry resonates with me right now:

    The most important thing that I learned in growing up

                        is that forgiveness is something that,

                when you do it, you free yourself to move on.

Hi Michael Jacobs, it took me too long to personally learn the Tyler Perry quote;  but at least I did learn it.  And Michael, it is so much fun to put it in practice...so easy; in fact, a lot easier than hatefulness, arguments, revenge and unnecessary hurt.

Wow, a fellow astrologer.  I've had an interest in that topic for years, and studied it a great deal.  I have no planets in Scorpio.  I am a Taurus with Sagitarius rising.

What a great selection of quotes about forgiveness. I especially liked the first one.

Morning Jane.

Like you in my younger years, I didn't forgive or forget.  Now, it just isn't worth it.

Yes,  Leif Price, I honestly believe forgiveness is ultimately a very high form of love; - it is like a test or sign how deep our love for others truly is.  And yet, Leif, it is so rewarding. It is so freeing.  Also surprising is it is fun and very easy to do!!!  Wishing you a great day!

Hi James Dray,  when I think back I remember thinking the same thing you expressed:  'It just isn't worth it.'  One day I found out how very good I felt when I crossed over to the person and exchanged my inner hurt and anger with kindness and love.  James, it felt so darn great and soon I started living that way...why miss all the fun, joy, love, and happiness?!?    No longer made sense to live life just defending a position - which in many cases was weak and/or faulty.
An extra bonus I found was in many cases my relationships with others became stronger and some became lifelong friends.

Somehow Brian England, I cannot for the life of me imagine that you ever had a major problem with 'forgiveness.'   You just come across as one of the most kind and loving persons I have the pleasure to know.

Hello Jane.  A. Pope I use to say all the time in the 80's to 90's but got out of the habit of saying it.
