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/

Nourishing to the soul
Love Jen’s ability to share her intention through her sincerity, vulnerability & honesty. Very comforting and encouraging.
I’ve listened to a few of these podcasts, and have enjoyed each one. The messages and narration are great. These podcasts have become part of my “self-care”.
I have listened to several of these podcasts and they are so relevant to me and my recovery. This one in particular was just amazing. Thank you for creating this space for reflection and awakening.
