I HATE the saying just be grateful.

 

From a young age hearing that made me feel gross. It's like being told I should just be grateful made feel bad for wanting more.

In this episode I'm doing way with just being grateful while still having a heart of thankfulness.

005: Are You In Need of Some Serious Forgiveness?

005.jpg

Forgiveness. It's one word that many struggle with.

We find it hard to forgive others for the wrong they've done us or the wrong we think they have done. Most importantly we find it hard to forgive ourselves.

How many times have you beat yourself up for the decisions you've made, lack of money, the wrong relationship, not saying yes, or not saying no?

Not forgiving can mean the difference in you living in bliss or staying stuck in old patterns.

In this episode I'm breaking down why forgiveness is so important to designing a live you love.
