Let It Go and Move On

Challenge of the Day: Let It Go and Move On
In honor of International Forgiveness Day, take a good hard look at an old grudge you’re carrying around and ask, how has holding on to this improved my life? Maybe, just maybe, today will be the day you let it go. If you’re ready, imagine the person who wronged you. See if you can think of what might be going on in his or her life that would explain acting thoughtlessly. Then wish him or her well and choose to let go of any angry or irritated feelings. And if you need a little help feeling forgiving, say a prayer for the person who wronged you: A 2010 Florida State University found that praying for a person significantly increased feelings of forgiveness toward him or her.
