Thought-full Thursday: To forgive is human


“Forgiveness makes us one with the human family and allows us to live in the sunlight of the present, not the darkness of the past. Forgiveness alone, of all our human actions, opens up the world to the miracle of infinite possibility” ~Kent Nerburn


If you peek behind the curtain of anger, fear, and the politics of your organization, you may often find a lack of forgiveness is behind them. Peek behind your own curtain today and go a little deeper to find the forgiveness of your own and others’ indiscretions that may keep you from being a leader who leads others while walking through the miracle of infinite possibility.


  • What is keeping you from self-forgiveness?
  • Who are you avoiding or holding a grudge against that could benefit from your foregiveness?
