New Year, New You - Xmas with Andrea

Sin título #223

Hi my beautiful readers! I am writing you on the 1st of January of 2013 to make you think what a huge opportunity we have in front of us...
We have an entire new year to change our ways but also to understand our past and cherish the moment. When I say understand your past, I do not mean letting it determine who you are today. I mean moving on in peace and start living again. Today I realized that forgiving with my heart allows me to live and be a lot more in peace with myself. Forgiving means allowing myself to care about people even when they don't deserve it. It may not be up to me judging but it is clearly non of my business,  mistakes made my others, even if their mistakes cut me like a knife.
The thing is, we are human. We make mistakes but we also need to be okay with ourselves to reach new adventures. I have been hanging on memories for too long because I did not want to forgive when at the end of the day, the only person I was really hurting was me. Hate seemed soothing but it was breaking me to pieces and it got harder and harder to put myself together.
So this is not only a letter to you, it is also a contract of forgiveness and self love for me to fulfill in this year.
