Hope.One of my mentors reminds me that when I am hoping, I am not in the present moment. This isn't the kind of hope that I am talking about. I am talking about the kind of hope that occurs when a weight has been lifted. Sometimes, we know that we have been weighed down and sometimes we have no idea how MUCH we have been weighed down.Join me for this episode about hope, listening and truth.Thank you, husband, for the edit and thank you, Joe Seiders for the music.*Apologies for the audio as I was trying something different with the microphone. Needless to say, I won't do it again. To borrow from Liz Gilbert, sometimes done is better than good. And today, that is the case.

Stop Drinking the Poison
Join Jen this week to discuss forgiveness, resentments and why holding on to all of it is bad for YOU.One of my favorite quotes is: "not forgiving is like drinking poison and waiting for the other person to get sick." Another favorite quote is by Seane Corn about forgiveness: "You can't bypass the 'f#$! you' to get to the 'I forgive you."I think that many of us confuse forgiveness with condoning. Forgiveness has ZERO to do with condoning and everything to do with our own freedom.Thank you, as always, to my husband for his awesome editing (I had a huge coughing fit and he edited it all out!). Thank you, Joe Seiders for music... it is my FAVE.Link to the the Forgiveness IQ by Belmont Wellness: https://belmontwellness.com/forgiveness-self-test-2/
