My Sunday Quote of The Week...

FORGIVENESS...

“As I walked out the door toward the gate that would lead to my freedom, I knew if I didn't leave my bitterness and hatred behind, I'd still be in prison.”
                                          ― Nelson Mandela



Madiba, you came and through example you taught, through perseverance you achieved and through your forgiving heart you have shown an entire nation a path to true freedom…
Your legacy is one of acute thinking, having empathy toward those who wish you wrong, the importance of personal integrity, and persistence. I read somewhere "that spirituality stems from a sense of commonality with others - and with all things. Mandela seemed to have that sense and it informed his dealings with others, and his insight into himself."
Thank you for your legacy. RS

“I eventually came to understand that in harboring the anger, the bitterness and resentment towards those that had hurt me; I was giving the reins of control over to them. Forgiving was not about accepting their words and deeds. Forgiving was about letting go and moving on with my life. In doing so, I had finally set myself free.”
