My Journey To Forgiveness and Gratitude
I cried so much.
As the kids stand up one by one, sharing their experience of the last 5 days mindset bootcamp, giving their gratitude to their parents, I couldn’t help but feel overwhelmed with emotion. I noticed tears start rolling down my eyes and I couldn’t stop it.
I’ve waited for years for my son to join this personal development program. It is similar to the adult version that I attended many years back, one that impacted my life and helped shape me to be who I am today.
And on 3rd December 2022, finally he made it.
Despite all the bad experiences we’ve had all these years, we have come a long way.
Overcoming our loss and pain, forgiving, mending our relationship, loving, and moving on…
In spite of all this, we’ve able to move on from the pain we experienced. Through understanding, patience, and love, my boy has been able to see how important it is to forgive those who hurt us and not let the past define us or our relationships with others.
This progress means so much to me. Seeing him being so mature, positive and loving filled me with feelings of gratitude – not only for his transformation but also for being able to forgive myself for the mistakes that I’ve made along the way as well as forgiving those who had wronged me in any way.
Receiving a letter from Aries addressed to ‘My Amazing Mom’ means the world to me!
Forgiveness is hard but it can also be incredibly rewarding when we are finally able to let go of past hurts or resentments. Seeing my son grows into such an understanding young man fills me with joy every day – he has taught me so much about resilience, love, forgiveness and gratitude during his life journey thus far. And for that I am truly grateful!
Working on our mindset and personal development is priceless, because it gives us happiness, resilience, and the positive attitude to Make Things Happen! And I’m grateful that my son is on this path.
On a side note, I was surprised when my ex-husband approached me and say, “Thank you. And I’m sorry.“
I looked at him briefly and I smiled.
Though I’ve long forgiven and let things go, hearing him said that after 5 years of our divorce feels like a good closure.
And two days ago, I finally visited my ex-laws. I decided to have a closure too, to let go of my hurt and disappointment towards them. I was afraid and not sure what to expect. But as I walked in, I was welcomed with a smile and a hug. It was a relief. And I’m glad, I did it.
What a wonderful way to end 2022 isn’t it?
We have all come a long way. And I’m glad that we have all found our happiness.
Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.
P.s. Making big, life changing decision is scary. Because we often focus on the worst case scenario, “What If..(-)”.
But, our fear is not a fact. It takes courage to change. And we can always change for the better, when we focus on the best case scenario, “What if I can?”
