Live Light. Live Mighty.

Today, I want to share with you 2 great life lessons that I personally believe would make a difference in the way we view life and the world around us, IF only we live by them.

Lesson #1: FORGIVE YOURSELF AND FORGIVE OTHERS

“Forgiveness is the best form of love. It takes a strong person to say sorry, and an even stronger person to forgive.”- Anonymous

Forgive yourself for the wrong choices and decisions you’ve made,  for not being good enough, for not being open, for not trying harder, for not reaching out. Forgive yourself for your failures and for the things that you did not do.

Forgive others for hurting you, for not appreciating you, for taking advantage of you, and for the wrong things done to you.

Not many people realize that when we forgive, we do ourselves favor. Forgiveness liberates us from the negative emotions that consume us. It frees us from anger, hatred and regrets. Forgiveness gives us peace and enables us to move forward.

 

Lesson #2: SEEK SIGNIFICANCE, NOT MATERIAL WEALTH

“Do the things that come from the heart. When you do, you won’t be dissatisfied…”– Mitch Albom, Tuesdays with Morrie.
When we die, we cannot bring our wealth with us. Our fame will eventually be forgotten. Our achievements will soon mean nothing. But what we will be remembered for are the things that we did to and for other people. How we made them feel. How we gave a part of ourselves to them.

So invest in people. Share your time. Be concern and compassionate. Nourish and dig deeper your relationships with your friends and family. Make it your purpose to share what you can give to the people around you.

I have not experienced dying, but I know that I would go happy and peacefully when I will have people who loves me in my deathbed. I would not trade that to any treasure in the world.
Choose LOVE over hate.
Choose KINDNESS over greed.
Choose FORGIVENESS over hatred.
Choose to be HAPPY by making the world around you happy. 🙂

  1. Beautiful!!! I completely agree with the Lesson 1. We must forgive everyone including ourselves. Sometimes we feel so incomplete and anxious, the reason is we forgot to forgive our-self..

  2. True…we feel a sense of “lightness” as if we have unloaded a heavy burden within us when we forgive. Thank you Aki for sharing your insight! =)

    1. Yes, forgiveness is one of the hardest things to do. But that’s what makes it special and a gift. It is a gift because we give it freely even to those undeserving of it. ☺
