Forgive…

Forgive…

Forgive… Just saw a post on Facebook a few minutes ago and it really resonated with me. It said this: I’m mature enough to forgive you.  But I’m not dumb enough to trust you again. It resonated with me for a few reasons. I find myself in need to forgive someone who was really REALLY important to me for years. What happened with that person broke my heart. It was a very difficult and painful process and I cried… a lot.  And then I cursed. And cried more. It has been a few months now and I feel it is time to let go, to move on. Though it’s really hard as the pain goes deep, I owe it to myself to allow some peace back into my heart whenever I come to see or think of that person. Forgive.  That’s the key word here. That was always a notion I was aspiring to perfect. When I was a kid, the whole concept of forgiveness meant something a Saint would do! Forgive and love. Love enough to recognize that human beings do right and do not so right. As an adult, the whole concept of forgiveness became not so clear. When a man I was involved with and loved had an affair with another woman, what was I supposed to do?  Forgive and forget?  Leave him? And what about a colleague backstabbing me to get a promotion?  Or a boss firing me on false pretenses?  Forgiveness was not such a clear and easy option. I was not a Saint… And yet, if we do not allow ourselves the grace...

Taking responsibility for laughing more!

Oh lala… I’ve noticed lately that I fell off the wagon…  I used to start my mornings with my breathing exercises followed with my morning laughter meditation – laughing for at least 5-8 minutes every morning. Lately, I’ve noticed that I don’t do that anymore. I don’t start my days with oxygen and laughter as I used to…  and I feel bad about that. I feel bad and SOMETHING’S MISSING! So I’ve decided to take responsibility for that and what better way than to to it with my Sisters! At least, the laughing part! This way, you all become my accountability Sisters! If you or a woman you know are in need of a laughter boost to jump start your morning with joy and love, then make sure you are online with me on our FB group (not the page! The group!) and laugh with me every morning at 8:30am ET. I’m doing this for 7 days to begin with. We’ll see how I can do that…  and we’ll see if it can be done longer than 7 days! Share with me what you need to laugh about (is that the way to write this?! hahaha! Not sure but I guess you get my point…). This morning I had 5 subjects I wanted to bring laughter into: the sunny day, having the chance to spend some time with you live, the mess in my office, seasonal allergies and being so late with many tasks…  Share yours with me and we’ll all laugh together about those! I sure can say that I feel way more light today and my energy...

I’m so missing you all!!

I’ve been thinking of my HAHA Sisters lately. Almost the end of the year and it’s my time to reflect on what happened in my life. 2015 was a very interesting year! hahaha! I traveled to UK and met a group of wonderful Sisters there!  They’re wild, beautiful, wise and it was a true joy to be there, share a laugh or 10 with them!  I feel blessed to have spent a few days with my darling Sister Sue Ansari and to FINALLY be physically with Lotte Mikkelsen!  I offered them “An afternoon with the HAHA Sisterhood” and was overwhelmed by the happy faces and comments! I will post a video later! For now… it’s time to eat dinner! hahahaha! Love you Your HAHA Sister, Linda...
