Forgiveness & Love

"He who is devoid of the power to forgive is devoid of the power to love."
- Martin Luther King, Jr.

Have you ever held a grudge?  I'm sorry to say that I have.  It's almost always unintentional (of course, right?), but it happens, and it's icky when it does.

But eventually, I'll either simply let go of my hurt or anger, or will actively choose to forgive.  Either way, the ickiness dissipates, leaving room for love to flourish again.  That's a much better space to live in.  MLK knew that, and he was right.

Is there anyone you need to forgive today?  Be brave; choose love.  You'll be so glad you did.
