This a.m. the morning shows were filled with the news of Sarah Palin’s book tour for her release of her new book “Going Rogue”.  One reporter remarked there isn’t an index and so those that want to know what she might’ve said about them in the book will have to read it and that could be her final revenge.

Is that what it’s all about? Revenge? Tit For Tat? Why do we focus on “getting back” at the other person? So many times I’ve heard people say- “Just wait-I’ll get back at them”.  And then it all becomes a vicious circle.  Life becomes all about figuring out how we can get back at those that might have said something about us or done something to us or treated us badly.  We waste precious time dreaming up schemes or waiting for that perfect moment to get our revenge.

What if we focused on turning the other cheek, forgiving that person for they know not what they do, treating them with kindness, etc, etc.

My soapbox for the day!
