Written by Maxine on June 1
since today is the first day of June, I thought I would write
something. I pondered what to write and once I stop pondering, an
idea popped into my brain. Now the challenge is to get this idea on
Steve and I saw
the movie, "Sex in the City." Steve has never seen one episode on
HBO nor the syndicated channels that houses the G rated version.
However, he being the good guy he is agreed to see it with me. I
even told him that since "Ironman" or "Raiders" coincided with my
movie, he could see either and meet up afterwards in the lobby. He
thought about it for a second and chose to movie with me. He
absolutely loved the movie. Same goes for me. The relationship with
friends and lovers etc was amazing. I am not a forgiving soul. I
think this movie taught me that it's time to move on and forgive.
Even if I don't tell the person who I am angry at that I forgive
her/him. To remain angry is downright stupid. All it does it hurt.
So June 1 is the day I began the act of forgiveness.
If one thinks about it, how ridiculous is it to stay in that state?
What am I accomplishing other that having a nasty attitude? There
are so many more important things in this world to correct and ease.
One of my cyber friends just found out her 14 year old daughter has
cancer. My niece was two buildings away from the scaffold crash this
week in NY on E 91st. I have been to more funerals this year than
any other year and the year is only six months old. How stupid is
it to be angry because someone messed up? I can be disappointed and
the next time not expect that it's going to be different. Being
angry because a 14 year has cancer. Absolutely. Sending positive
vibes her way, Yes! Sending prayers and finding out she is handling
this bump in the road and not saying, "Why me?" made me realize I've
wasted too much time on the anger.
today the sixth month of the year 2008 I forgive. I forgive everyone
and anyone who has been less than kind to me. I forgive anyone and
everyone who has been less than kind to my family. I forgive there
is hunger in this world. I forgive there is cattiness in this world.
I forgive stupidity in this world and all the other ailments and
ills of this world. I hold out my hand and hope that I can make a
difference in this world without causing despair.
And the first person I must forgive is me. I have to realize since I
am not perfect. Actually much less than any perfection: no one else
is either. I am much harder on me then any one else. So as I made
this proclamation, Maxine, I forgive you for being angry. I now
forgave myself and can move on and help those are in need and not
feel any more pain.
