Forgiveness is seldom easy, but it will always free you.

In this episode, I share with you my favorite ways to actively practice forgiveness... for yourself, for an event or situation, for one person or many people.

When we practice forgiveness, it allows us to let go of those blocks, find our flow, feel that flow, and be liberated to dream big.

“Forgiveness is a gift to myself. I forgive, and I set myself free.”
