I notice there are times that I get upset, and the anger I feel is very disproportionate to the situation.

Such powerful feelings of rage over something so trivial.

Then last night, I had a dream. It took me back to events that happened over 20 years ago. At the same time, it added in more recent events and people that have hurt me.

When I awoke, I realized that this is the reason I react so powerfully today.

I hide away these hurts and hostilities, and tell myself I am over them. Obviously I am not.

But now comes the gift. I can see it! The awareness allows me to accept these things, to see them as the past, to forgive myself and others who have harmed me.

I am so happy to forgive myself, and show myself loving kindness. From there, it is easy to love and forgive others who have hurt me.

Today is a new day, a fresh start. Just as every day gives me the opportunity. There is no yesterday, and there is no tomorrow.

Today I forgive myself. I forgives others. I love myself. And I love you.
