Forgive Yourself

Being forgiven is like having all the worst bits of yourself stuffed into a balloon and then having that balloon set free. —Shannon Wiersbitzky

17 days into this new year, and already I've been slacking on the goals I originally set for myself: like working out and eating better. In these 17 days, I've learned that I have to hold myself accountable. At the end of the day if I'm not meeting my goals, there's no one to blame but me. But it's much more serious than neglecting to go to the gym or eating your grandma's fried chicken knowing you're on a diet. It's all those things you said you'd never do, but did. It's the person you said you'd never become, but you see in yourself everyday. Yes, change is inevitable. But it doesn't have to be all bad. And in these last 17 days I've learned that forgiveness is for you, and no one else. So today, I ask that you forgive yourself for your mistakes first and foremost. Set yourself free today, if you don't like or love yourself you can't expect anyone else to. -Urban Black Girl
