This blog introduces you to my special brand of BIKE. I show you how to find your Best self, access your Inner strength, tune in to your Killer instincts, and use your Expressive voice. It's inspiring, spiritual, quirky, and it's all in your head. It's about ATTITUDE, not exercise, though that might be a side benefit.

Forgiveness vs. Reconciliation

I was doing an online search for potential markets for stories and ran across these self help tests at Spirituality & Health magazine. Check them out. I took the forgiveness test because we've recently discussed this topic here.

It gives you an idea of where you are at in your level of forgiveness. But what may be more important is that it discusses how forgiveness relates to reconciliation. Just because you can forgive someone of past transgressions against you doesn't mean there will be reconciliation with that person. When someone physically harms you, for instance, it may not be in your best interests to reconcile with that person, to continue the relationship. Forgiveness takes only you; reconciliation, on the other hand, takes two.

I thought that was interesting.

All my best,
