Ripples #802: Moving Forward!
Don’t hold a grudge.
and it doesn’t have a handle.

The first to apologize is the bravest.
The first to forgive is the strongest.
The first to move forward is the happiest.

First, I want to welcome back the 20,000 or so people that we finally were able to import to our new system for sending out Ripples. At first we had some technological issues, and then I was just nervous about importing such a massive list. The remarkable folks at MailChimp have been fantastic and I think you’re going to like our new home!
Second, I want to let ALL of you know that in a few weeks we’ll be asking for feedback about the new layout and features. Some of you have already shared concern and praises, and before we do any significant edits I’d like to hear the masses. Once I catch my breath from my fall travels I’m going to unleash a survey and I hope you’ll take a moment to chime in.
Finally, I’ll briefly say something about this week’s theme of MOVING FORWARD: sometimes we need to release a past wrong not because it was a little thing and not because another person deserves forgiveness. Sometimes we need to release a past wrong to make room for something new that can help us enjoy the next chapter of our adventures. Perhaps this week you can practice MOVING FORWARD from something small or medium-sized just to see how it feels. I will if you will.
