Spring Cleaning for Your Wounded Heart

…….if when you look inside, you are tired;

…….if when you look inside you do not like yourself anymore;

…….if when you look inside you find rust where you used to see sparkle;

…….if when you look inside you no longer find hope…….

Please know this…….

Forgiveness is your energizer;

Forgiveness is your self-esteem bolster;

Forgiveness is your emotional rust-inhibitor;

Forgiveness gives you hope.

Come, together, let us do some spring cleaning of your heart.

The first step is this: Commit to forgiving, to reducing resentment and offering goodness toward those who have cluttered the rooms of your heart.

The second step is this: Commit to doing no harm to those who have soiled your inner world and did not stay around long enough to clean up after themselves.

Forgiveness will be your servant. Forgiveness will make tidy the rooms of your heart.

    I am posting on this site for the first time today and I am delighted to have found you. What you are saying is that forgiveness is beautiful and by being beautiful it brings out the beauty in those who forgive. I am thinking that this is both an inner beauty (your image of the tidy heart-rooms) and an outer glow. These are images that will remain with me.

    There is a purity to forgiveness that the sordid and corrupt aspects of the world cannot reach. This is so comforting to realize. Forgiveness is like a safe-haven for the heart. It is so nice to finally realize this. Thank you.

    Forgiveness is a cause for hope when life beats us down. Just thinking about the topic is healing. You provide a very valuable service in this world. Keep it up.

    Your research does back up the ideas in this post. I am guessing that even you were surprised to find such powerful results from people going ahead and forgiving others their offenses. Science has supported what the ancient thinkers were saying all along, that forgiveness is good for us.

    I like this post. it gives us sight of the finish line and so it motivates us to start the race. If we can fix our eyes on that finish line we are more likely to get the job done of forgiving those who have been less than kind to us.

  6. Josh says:

    The idea that forgiveness gives us energy makes sense. If we are always angry this will drain us. As we forgive and reduce the angry thoughts and feelings we will have more energy for the better things in life.

    This is a challenge for us all. After the winter chill has taken over my heart, it is time to do the spring cleaning
