I’m here on a family reunion vacation and got the idea of doing a day of forgiving debts and transgressions (this was after hearing my Mom remind everyone once again how I quit the mother/daughter tennis tournament when I was 10). I talked this idea over with the Cheetah team and we all thought it was a good idea to make December 30th Jubliee day. And yes, I am forgiving my Mom for needing to continue to bring this up – I don’t even remember the event.
The concept of Jubilee day is very ancient. Seven weeks of seven years (that is 49 years) the rich were encouraged to forgive the debts of the poor. We figured, why not forgive all the debts that we felt others owed us – minor transgressions, favors never repayed, and actual financial debts. And start 2009 with a clean slate.
To help others celebrate Jubilee day with us, we have created several fun activities:
1. A survey on ways to move on from painful past events.
2. A free download with conflict resolution tips to reduce the chance of creating new mis-understandings.
3. A podcast that explores more ideas on participating in Jubilee day.
For various elements of participation, we have special promotional offers for the course that teaches how to live a prosperous and debt free existence using project management – Project Prosperity.
“The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong.”
