Forgiveness: A Gateway to a Stress-free Future

"Folks in this town know how to hold a grudge!" - That was Anne of Green Gables commenting on her experience with the unforgiving townsfolk while at her first job as a school teacher.

In this era of grudge keeping, revenge taking and vengence planning, this little news-story from baseball comes as an absolute breeze of cool air: Umpire costs player a perfect game, umpire fesses he mistake and player forgives him with a hug and everything is over. Sounds like a movie, but its true.

Forgiveness is a liberating closure that permanently removes the stress from planning a revenge. Especially on ourselves.

A new mantra for the new age: I forgive myself and everyone else, for all the things they have done to me in the past, present and future.
