Danger! Poison!

Many do not want to forgive because they have a misguided belief that by holding on to their anger, hatred or resentment is somehow punishing the other person. Wrong! That is not the case.

Rather, withholding forgiveness is akin to drinking poison with the hope that the other person will die. They won’t!

Forgive them for your own peace of mind, healing and freedom. You deserve to reclaim your power, your life. 🦋

Forgive For Freedom

Be brave. Forgive them for the joy of your freedom. 🦋

The Heartbeat of Forgiveness

Compassion is the heartbeat of forgiveness.🦋

Eyes Talk

Our eyes are windows to our heart. They reveal what we don’t dare voice. Eyes don’t lie. 🦋

F@*k You …

The journey towards resolution, forgiveness and peace can begin with f@*k you and that my friend is o.k. 🦋

The Fragrance of Forgiveness …

I believe forgiveness is one of the highest forms of love and respect in any personal or professional relationship.

It takes courage to say ‘I’m sorry’ and an even more valiant heart to say ‘I forgive you’.

~ Judit 🦋

Forgive Yourself First

Self-forgiveness is a positive admission to ourselves that we did the best we could with the level of consciousness and understanding that we had at the time of the situation. Forgiveness brings us peace, freedom and permission to move forward in loving kindness of self and others.

Crush the Pain …


I feel you … watching me … caressing my hair, my curves, my soul … I glance … you turn … feigned indifference … oh my sweet love … crush the pain … forgive me as I have forgiven you.

Reconciliation …

Toronto-20160626-01272 (1)

This morning as I am walking along the shores of Lake Ontario, I come across a quarried boulder with RECONCILATION etched on its one side. A fallen white tissue positioned just so in front of it. As I sit on this boulder … now my boulder … observing the hypnotizing ebb and flow of the lake … reconciliation begins to whisper … promising love, peace and joy … slowly shape-shifting into a bridge of hope … beckoning to cross over to grace … rumbling thoughts of reconciliation begin to roll through my mind … crushing illusions of fear … soothing anger … commanding to stand down … as I begin to loosen and relax … forgiveness purifies my guilt … our guilt … my eyes mist, tears flow … my heart breaks open … hmm … am I brave enough?  I continue on my walk … seeking courage.

As I Am …


Self-respect, appreciation, acceptance and forgiveness or flotsam and jetsam washed up on the beach of life…

A Channel of Peace …


Peace, one of the noblest virtues that lives within all of us … imagine how your life would transform if you decided to live your life through the spirit of Peace … one breath,  one heart-beat,  one thought, one deed at a time …

~ Judit e. Szabo

Moving Mountains …


A miracle is love’s echo  …

Forgiveness Is The Fragrance…


Forgiveness is the fragrance that the violet sheds on the heel that has crushed it.

The Winds of Forgiveness…

Two friends were walking  through the desert.

During some point of the journey, they had an argument and one friend slapped the other one in the face.

The one who got slapped was hurt, but without saying anything, wrote in the sand, “Today my best friend  slapped me in the face”.

They kept on walking, until they found an oasis, where they decided to take a bath.

The one who had been slapped got stuck in the mire and started drowning, but the friend saved him.

After he recovered from the near drowning, he wrote on a stone, “Today my best friend saved my life”.

The friend who had slapped and then saved his best friend asked him, “After I hurt you, you wrote in the sand and now, you write on a stone, why?”

The friend replied “When someone hurts you write it down in sand, where winds of forgiveness can erase it away.

But, when someone does something good for you, engrave it in stone where no wind can ever erase it”.

Learn to write your hurts in the sand and to carve acts of love and kindness in stone.
