Dear Life, One of the most powerful lessons I’ve learned on my years on the planet, came shortly after a divorce in 2009. I attended a weekend retreat going through the 12 Steps led by a Native American leader in our community. His wisdom and advice on forgiveness, change, and stories was this:
“We can forgive and change by putting our stories on the “altar” and letting the Higher Power rewrite them. We, in and of ourselves, are incapable of that rewrite”.
I have found this to be profoundly true. Each morning, I put all “my stories” on the altar of life for the rewrite by the Higher Power. It works if I let it and life is so much more interesting and easier.
