Hey guys, welcome to day 27. We are in the park right now, and I got Shelley Sims with me. Today I wanted to bring you a lesson and share a quick story with you that not many people get to hear. Recently while I was in Mexico, I got to implement day 27, and the lesson is forgiveness.
Now, the quick story is we were cruising along in the jeep. You guys may have seen that video. We get to the traffic light, I am looking up, and to the side, I see a sign that has a U-turn symbol. I am like, perfect. I need to do a U-turn. The GPS says we can go that way.
So I am sitting in the left turn lane, the left arrow light turns green. I am like, great, here we go, and I do my U-turn. Find out, No, you can not do that. I got pulled over about 20 seconds later by two motorcycle cops. Come to find out there is a specific light after the left turn light for U-turns. Who would have thought?
Anyway, I love learning. I am talking to the cop. He says, if you want to, you can go down to the courthouse, pay it and then call me when you get done. We will meet up, and I will give you your ID. I am like, wait a minute, that does not sound right.
So long story short, I ended up giving him 2000 pesos for my ID. Right? We are sitting there. He takes off and has the money. I got my ID back. I am in a car full of friends. I am like, well, moving right along. Now I was able to do this because of forgiveness.
All right, we must be able to forgive, to let go. You know, I could have sat there the whole time and played the victim. Instead, I just decided, you know what, it is all gravy, baby. He needed the money more than I did. Let us move on and keep having fun, which we did. It did not even faze us. So this is a key to forgiveness.
Now, Shelley is a coach who helps people move through blocks in their life. She has helped me before I have helped her. It is a win-win. There are some other ideas that I want her to share with you guys about forgiveness. What do you get?
So, one of the best things about forgiveness is it is never about other people. It is only ever about ourselves. We need to forgive so that we can feel happier, more joy, more light. If we hold a grudge against someone, then we wander around with a weight on our shoulders, and we can not move.
It takes a lot more energy to hold anger and frustration, and unforgiveness towards someone than it does to be loving and kind. When you say, I understand that you did not know what you were doing. It is freer and happier. It makes your life easier if you can send those loving thoughts to someone else and forgive them.
That’s the key guys, do not get bonked down on your success path. Life will throw you a lot of silliness. You can take it personally and get all offended and hold resentment, or you can say, isn’t that interesting? And move right along.
That’s the key to forgiveness. Forgive your past, your mom, your teachers. Forgive. You know, Uncle Sam, forgive, forgive yourself. Forgive the bureaucrats, forgive your neighbor, forgive your siblings. Just move on. They’re not the same people anyway, so move on.
You don’t need to carry around that poison. A wise man once said that resentment is like poison. When you take it, you poison yourself. Don’t hold on to resentment. Let it go. Day 27 is your success. Thanks for joining.
