    Forgiveness. It's one of those words that's easy to say and REALLY hard to do. Especially if someone has hurt you deeply.

    Eva Kor gets that. She is a survivor of Auschwitz. 50 years after suffering horrific abuse, she came face-to-face with a Nazi doctor. She wrote him a letter that took 4 years to write. It was a letter forgiving him. She said it was a great release. For the first time she had control over what happened to her and the Nazi's didn't, because she had forgiven them and she could move on. They no longer had control over her.

    Wow. Powerful. That's the thing about forgiveness. We often think that we are letting the person who hurt us off the hook by forgiving them, when we are actually setting ourselves free and taking back control.

    Maybe you've been through something like that. Have you ever experienced forgiveness in a situation that seemed impossible to forgive?

    If you woke up this morning and the first word out of your mouth was “Ouch!” You might have started a new workout routine! A lot of us do at the beginning of the year, and our bodies might not be happy about it!

    Experts say that there are over 600 muscles in the human body, and when we start a new exercise routine, it often feels like every muscle is sore at once! 

    The technical term for being so sore that you have to crawl around your house on your stomach, cause you “Just. Can't. Walk,” is “Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness.” Have you had this happen? The first day after a new, really hard workout, you're like “I don't feel too badly!” Then, the next day comes. Can't. Move. 

    This happens to me a lot. In fact, I started a new routine yesterday and I feel pretty good today. I'm scared to crawl out of bed tomorrow, however! That's when it will get me!

    Does this mean that I pushed too hard? Maybe. Experts say that the soreness is a result of “micro traumas” in your muscles. This may sound bad, but don't take it as an excuse to stop working out!

    The best thing to do if you're super-sore from your workout is to get back into things with light exercise, stretch a bit and take a rest day or two. But, it's still important to keep up with the workouts…even though you WILL be sore again! And, have no shame about crawling on the floor, if you must!

    Mercy Me has a song called “Dear Younger Me.” The question in the song is “What would you say to your younger self? If you could go back and give yourself advice, what would it be?”

    I found an article about that the other day. The author said “I wish an older, wiser woman had taken the time to help create a road map for a life of meaning, creativity and joy. It would have saved a lot of time, confusion and worry.” She went on to say “With that in mind, here are some of the things I would've liked to tell myself a few decades ago.”

    1. Nothing is worth sacrificing your health. Take care of yourself. Even when you think you're young and invincible.
    2. Get comfortable with saying “no.”
    3. Don't let anyone else's perception influence your choices. Don't just do something 'cause you think you “should do it.” Give some thought to it.
    4. Gratitude really does change your life. Make it a daily practice.
    5. Hatred costs everything. Forgiveness costs nothing.

    Good stuff, huh? What about you? If you could go back and talk to your younger self, what would you say?
