This is a 10 minute long video about forgiveness. It is very similar to the one my pastor, Bob Palumbo, gave a couple of Sundays ago. I have found forgiveness to be essential to my walk as a Christian and empowering at the same time. Rebecca breaks the process of forgiving into five steps the first is to acknowledge the hurt and the damage that has been done. The second step is to name that which you wish to be freed from. The third step is to not own the other person’s venim. You didn’t ask for abuse, you were not at fault. Sometimes, you need to give this process to God. Step four is giving your brain a chance to develop new pathways in which the old way of thinking is replaced with something healthier and finally, try to live a day continously forgivining. I recommend the video but not the self-loathing in the beginning. Girl, I am the queen of self-deprication and I see what you’re doing. Don’t. Remember whose you are.

‘K – something you need to know about me; I am freakishly un-photogenic. Seriously. Not that attractiveness is terribly important, but I am much better looking in person than on this video I’m going to share with y’all. Even my 13 y.o. when he was helping me format the video commented, “you don’t look anything like this in real life, mom. It’s really weird.”

Which is all cover to make myself feel better before coming out from behind the text and sharing my video with you. The video’s my top 5 strategies for forgiveness. Something which I have had my fair share of experience with. Ahem.

(If you were on facebook last night and saw me freaking out – this was what had me all in a tizzy. Thank you to all the peeps who gave me a boost. BTW, if you’re not following The Upside Down World on facebook
