It was a breath of fresh air. I began to realize that the freedom I felt/experienced on the coaching call was something I was created to enjoy and able to have in my life on a daily basis.

Today is my birthday!!! And in the spirit of celebrating life, I want to express my gratitude to you. Thank you for being a part of this community. It truly is an honor to be able to connect with you, write to you, read your emails, and serve you.
Over the past few months, a lot has changed. I have stepped back from coaching one-on-one. Instead, I chose to follow my passion to go to vegetarian culinary school.
I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: the way we treat other people is a direct reflection of the way we treat ourselves.
Usually, if you struggle to forgive other people easily, it’s because you find it difficult to cut yourself any slack.
Which brings us to this week’s question, from Virginia:
“I am so hard on my husband. He is the kindest most supportive man, and I treat him like a doormat. I’ve been reading a lot of books on forgiveness, and I realize there are a lot of things in my life that I haven’t forgiven myself for, which is why I am so hard on my husband. How do I start forgiving myself?”
First of all, Virginia, congratulations. I’m so happy to hear you’re doing the work, and forging your own journey to forgiveness. That takes an incredible amount of strength. Power to you, girl!
I’ve had deep struggles with forgiveness in the past as well, so this subject is very near & dear to my heart.
Here’s what I know now: there are 5 foundational steps that will lead you back towards the place that genuine, authentic forgiveness flows from. You can learn more about them in the video below.
The first step: you must be willing to forgive yourself. For so many people, this is the absolute hardest part of this journey. We all carry a lot of shame and guilt, and it makes us feel like we don’t deserve the love or acceptance of others.
But I’m here to tell you: you absolutely DO. Just by being alive, you’re entitled to all the adoration and kindness in the world. Chew on that for a second.
The rest of the steps are on the video, so watch it now!
Do you, or someone you know, struggle to forgive? If you know someone who would benefit from watching this week’s KIR, I invite you to share this post with them.
I’d love to hear about your relationship to forgiveness in the comments below. How will you make more room for it in your life, starting right now? Don’t be shy – tell me all about it!
you may or not have had this feeling.but my hunch is telling me that you have.
it’s the feeling of uneasiness, of wanting more, of something”missing.”
i know this because i have felt this way since i was 7 years old.
that feeling…is your Purpose unfulfilled.
that feeling…is you wanting to bust out of your shell and truly be unleashed.
that feeling…is the deep knowing that you have a reason for being here.
that feeling..is the soul contract that you made with God (or Universe, Higher Self, Spirit) even before you were born.
that feeling….if you wanting share your message and impact people’s lives.
that feeling…is waiting for YOU to give permission to yourself to just say YES.
for the love of you.
what you have been looking for is you.
you are the happiness that you have been wanting to feel.
you are the forgiveness that you have been waiting for.
you are the love that you seem to think is out “there.”
you are the creativity that somehow got lost in 4th grade.
you are the magic that has you running tricks on yourself.
you are the approval that you yearn for from your parents, your spouse, your colleagues, your clients, your friends, anyone and everyone that will give you a compliment.
you are the peace that drives you to control and manage everything and everyone around you.
you are the answer to the never-ending question.
you are the gift that you have been searching for.
it’s all you my friend.
