Podcast Description:

Hello, beautiful souls!

In today’s episode, we dived deep into the profound subject of forgiveness. I shared insights on how embracing forgiveness is not about excusing others but liberating ourselves from the chains of resentment and victimhood. This is about finding freedom and reclaiming our power.

Forgiveness is a theme that’s close to my heart. It’s a process of releasing the dense, heavy emotions that hold us back from true joy and fulfillment. We explored how these emotions, while protective at first, can keep us small and hinder our growth.

The journey of forgiveness is not just about others but, importantly about forgiving ourselves. It’s about acknowledging our past actions and decisions, releasing guilt, and allowing ourselves to move forward with compassion and self-love.

I shared a powerful personal story from the Boston Marathon, highlighting how I had to forgive myself for my reactions in a moment of crisis. This personal revelation helped me see the true power of forgiveness—it’s an act of immense strength and self-compassion.

As always, I invite you to engage with these ideas in your own life. Consider joining our community for more on this transformative path, and don’t forget to check out the forgiveness meditation I mentioned—it’s a real game – changer.

Thanks for tuning in, and remember, the act of forgiving is one of the most loving gifts you can give to yourself.

Until next time, lead with courage and love!
