    Tips that Work for Bringing the Power of Forgiveness into Your Life

    Tips that Work for Bringing the Power of Forgiveness into Your Life

    Hey, it’s Amy Newmark with today’s Chicken Soup for the Soul inspiration from our new book, Chicken Soup for the Soul: The Forgiveness Fix. We made this book because I’ve read tens of thousands of personal, revealing stories from our writers during the twelve years I’ve been doing this job, and I’ve come to understand that forgiveness is an essential key to happiness. Why is forgiveness so important? It’s because of the emotional weight we carry when we don’t forgive.

    Making a Difference Really Makes You Feel Good

    It’s Never Too Late to Apologize and Use the Power of Forgiveness

    Hey, it’s Amy Newmark with today’s Chicken Soup for the Soul inspiration from a book that’s perfect for the new year: Chicken Soup for the Soul: The Forgiveness Fix. We made this new book because I’ve read tens of thousands of personal, revealing stories from our writers during the twelve years I’ve been doing this job, and I’ve come to understand that forgiveness is an essential key to happiness. Why is forgiveness so important? It’s because of the emotional weight we carry when we don’t forgive. This may be the New Year’s resolution that you’re looking for; it works instantly and it’s easy. You just have to decide to put the past in the past, where it belongs, and move forward without that anger and resentment that you’ve been taking everywhere with you. You also may want to use the new year as an impetus to apologize; if you’ve been thinking about it, maybe this is the time to just do it.
