Day 5 - Forgiveness
The holidays are also a time to forgive those who have wronged us or given us reason to pull away from them. Sometimes these separations are caused by major incidents, but often they are over minor things that got blown out of proportion or no longer matter. In some cases, we don't even remember what caused the acrimony, we just know that something happened that changed the relationship.
Is there someone in your life that you need to forgive? Is there a family member who should be a part of your celebration but has been excluded? Do you need to make amends to someone? Is there a person you want to reach out to?
The holidays are a great time to heal old wounds. Regardless of what caused the separation or who was at fault, you can make a gesture that opens the door to reconciliation. Let go of the past and forget about blame. Offer a hand of unconditional love and forgiveness and see what happens. You have nothing to lose and may just regain a friend or family member.
