I wanted to share a quick story with you about why I believe one of the greatest anti-wrinkle, anti-aging secret is the act of forgiveness. Everyone has people they need to forgive, right? But it can be such a difficult thing to do and we know it doesn’t just happen overnight.
Over the years, I myself, have had some extreme hurts to let go of and forgive. I was miserable until I forgave, and then the weight of the world was lifted. I was able to move forward and live a happier life.
But, these days, “an eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth” seem to be the social operating norm. Forgiveness seems to be something that is just not an option.
EverydayHealth.Com quotes Doris Day, MD, a clinical assistant professor of dermatology at New York University Medical School and author of Forget the Facelift, who states, "I always say that life is in your head, meaning, your moods and outlook have the greatest impact on how you look, and how others perceive you." https://www.everydayhealth.com/beauty-pictures/how-moods-mess-with-your-skin.aspx
To illustrate my point, I'd like to tell you about my friend, Laurie had a striking encounter with someone and walked away with a very distinct understanding of how prolonged anger would affect her.
I invite you to watch her brief testimony as she explains quite vividly how she realized her only path forward to being a better person - and to staying young looking - was learning how to forgive.
Please take a moment to watch her brief video testimony, it is a remarkable story.Are you wrestling with feelings of being unjustly hurt? Do you harbor resentments, particularly old resentments? I invite you to reflect on the possibility of forgiveness for those who have hurt you and open the door to a happier life… and looking younger.
