By Tara Dimick, Forgive. As my 2-year-old daughter likes to sing, “Let it go. Let it go.” The ability to forgive starts with accepting that we are all human and flawed, and we hurt each other—knowingly and unknowingly. But forgiving gives you the power and strength to be free of the weight caused by anger and sadness. I’m not saying it's easy, but the sooner you accept the flaws of others. As well as your own flaws; the more likely you are to be free of the constraints that are created when you hold on to the wrong done to you by imperfect humans.
Fail. Too often the thought of failing keeps us from trying. Failures are stepping stones to progress. Embrace them and learn from them. Channel Chumbawamba sings, “I get knocked down, but I get up again, you’re never going to keep me down.”
Fly. It’s not going to be easy, but you are ready. Spread your wings and jump—you got this.
