forgive the stupidity… ahead of time.

today i went to the visitation… after a very tragic death.

i said several things to try to comfort my friend, who is mourning the loss of her beloved friend. then i said, “people are going to say stupid things. it’s a fact. decide ahead of time to forgive them …”

which got me thinking… why don’t we do that all of the time? why don’t we walk into each day with the plan to forgive everything. if we set our hearts on forgiveness and kindness, we don’t waste time with insecurity and defensiveness. we just celebrate and share love.

i want to plan to forgive stupidity ahead of time.
