“Holding on to anger, resentment and hurt only gives you tense muscles, a headache and a sore jaw from clenching your teeth. Forgiveness gives you back the laughter and the lightness in your life.” Joan Lunden

Why do we hang on to anger so easily, and find it so difficult to let go and forgive?? I know so many people who are just driven by their anger over so many different issues . . . many times just perceived wrongs that have been given flight by anger and resentment. In fact, the anger and resentment is usually driven by past hurts and experiences that are buried and hidden, and we can’t name them because they’re invisible. It’s so tough to live life in a state of awareness . . . trying to understand where this anger comes from and working towards putting out the hot burning fire. Once awareness is achieved, its so much easier to forgive and move on. I know that in my life, I’ve had to work and work at this . . . and it continues to be a daily challenge. I can tell you though – the benefits are so worth it.

Today’s photo is just a composite I put together because I woke up with a gnarly headache this morning. It doesn’t happen very often . . . but when it does I have a tough time shaking it off. I processed this in Photoshop with a few different presets, added my own textured background, and added a cracked texture to my hands.

Oh . . . and I’m feeling better now!
