A Hundred Days To Happiness: The Qualities of a Child – Forgiving & Hoping

Forgiving and Hoping (for March 28th, 2011)

Young children may make a big deal in the short term about little things but they can be better than us in letting go. With the big things and with us, they can be much more forgiving – more than we can be with one another.

Unless we really blow it and disappoint them and let them down one too many times, they are ever forgiving, don’t give up on loving us, and don’t give up hope.

Your happiness exercise for today: Have you given up on anyone, including yourself? Was it really for something unforgiveable? If you’ve given up on the relationship but haven’t let go of the pain, what do you need to do feel free?
