On Forgiveness

This week’s theme at Oh Get a Grip! is forgiveness:

Where does forgiveness fit into the above quote? Does it fit at all? Can you have bad things happen to you, be strengthened by them and yet never forgive those who inflicted the bad things upon you? That would seem to be contrary to religious teachings—or at least Christian teachings. In order to be good and healthy and full of sunshine, you have to forgive, right? Otherwise, your soul is just a black, rotting smudge in the universe and you’re just a miserable, hateful person. Or something like that.

Personally, I call bullshit.

That wasn’t at all how I expected my piece to go, but I think once I started contemplating the nature of forgiveness I realized my true feelings on the subject are in contradiction to what I’ve been told/taught most of my life. There goes my Good Person award, I guess. Read the rest here (and feel free to leave a comment whether you agree or disagree): Letting Go Without Forgiving

My post this week at Oh Get A Grip! is about works in progress, the apocalypse and NaNoWriMo. Or something like that…

Confession: I chose this week’s theme “Work in Progress” because I’m lazy. I thought it would be easy enough to open up one of my files, copy and paste some text, write, “This is what I’m working on” and my OGGbligation for the week would be met. I’m a slacker. I suck.

Confession: I am contemplating participating in National Novel Writing Month this year. Insane, I know. I don’t even have the time to write my weekly OGG posts and I’m thinking about writing a novel in a month.

What does the apocalypse have to do with my slackerdom and NaNoWriMo? Here’s the rest, if you want to find out: The Apocalypse is Nigh, Or: Confessions of a Slacker.
