You’re right, I did it!

Acknowledging my actions in the past is huge.  The harmful behaviors, words and even the thoughts from yesterday or twenty-five years ago have made their mark.  Those scars may have healed over or they be open wounds which still itch and burn.

As I grow and learn I would like to be judged on where I am right now in my spiritual journey.  I would like to be recognized for the baby steps I have taken and the changes I have made.

The Rolling Stones told me the truth, though, “Oh, you can’t always get what you want.

I am allowed to forgive myself.  I’m allowed to make amends for what I can remember.  But I never have been and never will be able to dictate others’ perceptions of me.

I ask for forgiveness.  I hope for healing.  I continue to learn.
