Most of us at one time in our lives have been wronged. We cannot control what others do all we can do is control how we react. Many have been hurt by another, and some have never truly let go and forgiven that person. Reflect on any anger or resentment you hold, who is your anger benefiting? Them or You? Write a letter to the person who you are angry at, you can send it or not but just putting it down can be cathartic. Write, reflect and try to release this anger, do this for yourself!
Friends, to some of us they are an extension of our families, our soul sisters, and brothers. What do you look for in a friend? For me I value people who tell it like it is, although I may not like it at the time I would rather they put the cards on the table than tell me what I want to hear. I also value those who have triumphed over adversity yet are still compassionate and positive. Who are your closest friends and what is it about them that you value, their honesty,intelligence, humour, strength and/or compassion? What type of friend are you to them? Reflect and write.
“You have to find something that you love enough to be able to take risks, jump over the hurdles and break through the brick walls that are always going to be placed in front of you. If you don’t have that kind of feeling for what it is you are doing, you’ll stop at the first giant hurdle.”
~ George Lucas
Life can change in a blink of an eye. Ironically, change is the one constant in everyone’s life; you barely notice it, unless of course it is monumental. That is when change stands out; you remember it because something in you changes, perhaps your point of view, it forces you to learn about life and yourself. It can be good or bad, big or small but it is often something that leaves an indelible mark on you. Write about a monumental change in your life. What happened? What changed? What did you learn from it?
