The Art of letting go

You will know that forgiveness has begun when you recall those who hurt you and feel the power to wish them well.”

“To forgive is to set a prisoner free and discover that

the prisoner was you.”

Lewis B. Smedes

What  words come to you when you look at this collage ?
What wisdom is in this image?
I was going to call it the fire breather.
To me it is how to deal with words that are thoughtlessly spit out at you.
I find the best way to deal with them my self is to no longer give them the power, I will no longer take them personally. I know words hurt. I gave them that power in the past. But now, I will no longer allow them to have any negative power. I now chose to forgive.
I do deeply feel words. I love to communicate.   But I no longer wish to feel sad. I wish to give all the power of words to be taken in a positive way.

I will keep telling my self "there is no good or bad,they are intertwined like a rope, there is only our judgment of what is good or bad.

    I like the rose you hold in your hands and the cute hat!
