Let’s let it go

Treadmill Treats Monday message

Let’s let it go…

Lately I have doing alot of “do as I say not as I do” and I realized that not taking my own advice stinks! I tell everyone not to worry, don’t stress, make peace with those who did you wrong, let it go… not so easy to do, I am human and occasionally I let life get the best of me.

I have come to realize my advice is really good ( if I do say so myself) now I need to listen to it!
I am not big on new years resolutions but I am big on change, last year I said I was  going to not bring the sins of past relationships into the future and I worked hard not to do that.
This year I will  be listening to my inner voice and God’s voice in my life. I heard my Bishop say you need to love your enemies even when they are after you and my inner voice said to listen. Recently I have wrote about my ex and how what he had been doing has effected me, I am angry, I want vengeance, I want him to suffer like I suffered for 24 years but that is not “Christ like” and I really don’t want to feel like this about anyone, this feeling ruins  my peace and joy I have in my life.
So this is to him….

Today I apologize for all the unkind words I spoke to you, I do not wish to fight with you anymore, I am sorry for my role I played in the demise of our marriage, I have forgiven you for what had happened and your part and I hope one day you will forgive me for what I did.

We have children, we will always be connected through them and  there was a time when they were born that we were happy. It didn’t work out between us, it doesn’t mean that we have to go on hating each other and trying to hurt one another.

From today on if you want to keep this going that will be on you…I will play no role in it, if you want to take me to court, go ahead…If you say bad thing’s  about me, it’s okay.. if you want to be vendictive and have to get back at me…go for it…
I will no longer be playing this game with you. I wish you well, I hope one day you can be happy. … I chose to live my life with peace and joy and hope you will learn to do the same.

Your actions will no longer effect me or my life, from this day forward I will try my best to be “Christ like” to forgive, to love my enemies and to live my life not effective by what you do or do not do. So today I am letting this go…and I am hoping you will as well..

So today my friends feel free to copy and paste and send to your ex. It’s not about them, it’s not about if they respond kindly or not, this is for you, this will change your life just like forgiving others, it’s about you not holding on to the hatred that is killing you while they go about their lives, this is you letting go and doing the right thing, whether or not they do.
Let it go….let it go….
