Forgiveness

With the recent Tiger Woods apology,  I was wondering how forgiving our society is.

I am a pretty forgiving person because no one is perfect and we all make mistakes.  Some are big, some are small, but either way, we all have made mistakes, and will make more mistakes in the future.  My Mom always says, “People forgive us for the things we do, so we have to forgive them for the things that they do.”  I believe My Mom is right.  I’m not perfect, and people love me  in my imperfectness, so I have to do the same for others.

I think forgiveness is more for your own personal freedom.  If you are a person that holds onto anger, you are really only hurting yourself.  Forgiving doesn’t have to mean forgetting.  You can remember what has happened to you, but you can chose to say, ” What that person did isn’t right, but it’s done now and I’m not going to let that get to me anymore.”  Anger brings out the worst in me, and I want to be the best person that I can be – especially for my daughter.

I think in general, we are a pretty forgiving society.  We might remember what happened, but are able to look into the future for that person to make things right.  However, if it’s something that happens over and over again – a whole new set of rules apply.

I can’t imagine what it feels like for celebrities to have such personal things plastered all over the media.  Especially since the media soaks up all the juicy gossip whether it’s true or not (I guess that’s why it’s called gossip).  I would never want to be a celebrity for that reason!

Are you a forgiving person?  Or do you hold onto a grudge for a long time?  Don’t you love that picture of Puss n Boots?

TV in your bedroom

I am an old fashioned girl in many ways!  For example, my husband and I do not have a tv in our bedroom, we never have and probably never will.  I don’t think I will allow my kids to have a tv in their room either.  I just figure the bedroom is for doing more important things – like sleeping.

My husband is away for business, and I am kind of feeling like I wish I could watch a little tv (the Olympics)  in my room all snuggled up in my bed at night.  I have never really had this desire before.  I like watching tv in the living room with my family, but since I am alone, I think I would like it in my room better.

Do you have a tv in your bedroom?  Am I living like 50 years ago?!?
