Recently Hummingbird and I visited family in Princess Anne, Maryland. They came from Texas, Georgia, and Philadelphia to celebrate the life of our Uncle Johnny. I enjoyed being around their energy and embraced the abundance of love. Coming from a big family has its benefits and because of the distance our time together is always appreciated.
There were a few moments I thought of the past situations with certain family members that hurt me as child and as an adult, and then made the conscious decision to understand they happened a long time ago. I wanted to give myself a chance to heal from them by forgiving those who I thought hurt me. No person or family is perfect, and yes people make mistakes. I’m learning to love more unconditionally, while forgiving and healing from the past.
At the end of the trip I was proud of myself and enjoyed every moment with my family. I look forward to being with them again.
I forgive everyone for everything, totally and unconditionally.- Iyanla Vanzant
