Wordplay Power.

Lately, when confronted with a need to forgive, I find myself replacing the word “choice” with “decision” as I notice that I am sometimes lulled into a comfortable familiarity with the word choice. It sounds so gentle. Choice. Easy going. Choice.

Go ahead. Say it out loud. You know you want to. Choice.

Now, fill in the blank. “I made a choice to ______.”

That felt kinda laid back and comfy, didn’t it? (I know “kinda” is not a word. I made a choice to use it.)

Now, visit the word “decision.” Do you find yourself a little more at attention? Decision invites precision and the kind of focus found when signing on the dotted line.

Go ahead. Say that out loud, too. Decision.

Now, fill in the very same blank. “I made a decision to ______.”

Choice. Decision. Can you feel the energy shift? I don’t know about you but decision puts me in a place of recognizing the power I engage with. I make a conscious contact.

There is a quote from the bible that says, “You will decide upon a matter and it will be established for you.” Job 22:28

I encourage you to use this wordplay in matters of the heart this week and see if it makes a difference for you. However, for the sake of this particular post, I would like to apply it to issues that involve forgiveness.

Today, I choose to forgive and decide not to suffer.

Today, I decide to forgive because I choose not to suffer.

Whether you choose or decide, let it be established that you are ready to let go of the suffering and engage with the power that will assist you in forgiving.

Lighten that load and Forgive it Forward. XO Bernadette
