Forgiveness is a tool for healing. To forgive is to set a prisoner free and discover that the prisoner was you. Life isn’t perfect. And like it or not, getting hurt is part of it. When it is unintentional, of course we wish we could rewind time and delete what happened. Well, the next best thing is practicing forgiveness. I know forgiving doesn’t always come easily when we feel hurt and wronged. Why, every time my Mom serenely told me to let it go, forgive, I wasn’t always comfortable with that. I’d think—how can sheforgivenes be so cool about the injustice in her life? How can she smile and shrug off people being nasty, saying hurtful things? Sometimes, friendships/relationships break up over a misunderstanding and the people involved make their own assumptions about why things came to pass. The feeling of being let down stays. There’s finger pointing. And all…

Man’s best friend. Unconditional love. Health booster. Cuddles. Love. Patient. Playful. Loving. Fun. Happiness. That’s what comes to my mind when I think of dogs. So much we can learn from them. And none better than my dear friend Guilie–who blogs about dogs at Life In Dogs, and about everything else at Quiet Laughter–to showcase those lessons!

All is well in my world This post is a tribute to Louise Hay, who will live forever in the hearts of those whose lives she transformed through her legacy of wisdom. On 30 August, the world lost one of its most powerful motivators, Louise Hay, author, and the founder of Hay House.

She did not have an easy life, and is immortal proof that positive affirmations and visualization work. She succeeded in healing herself from…

To err is human. In the process, people get hurt. If only one could turn the clock back and undo what happened. But there is a way. Forgiveness Everyone makes mistakes. We hurt others. Others hurt us.  Luckily, we have the choice to come to terms with the situation and let go of the painful memories so we can move on with our lives. “Forgiveness is not something we do for other people; we do it for ourselves – to get well and move on.” If you’re thinking forgiving someone lets the one that hurt you off the hook,  that’s not it. Forgiveness is all about feeling happier and releasing the suffering to make us feel better. Thing is, suffering does not help anyone. Here are some wonderful quotes on forgiveness: “Anger makes you smaller; while forgiveness forces you to grow beyond what you were” Forgiveness is unlocking the door…

Or, is it?You know the saying that goes “To err is human, to forgive, divine”Of late, I’ve been reading quite a lot about forgiveness and I must admit, I’ve learned a few things – nay – concepts. It is all about perception, you know.And before you wonder, let me tell you – I’ve sent my halo to my celestial mechanic – so I am not going to offer any tips here. Instead, I want to share some inspiring quotes about forgiveness. You know why?

For instance, I have my own views.  And I was curious to know…
