The Power of Forgiveness

I’ve had a few things from my life that I’ve needed to forgive. We all do. The most important person I’ve forgiven is myself.

Forgive others, not because they deserve forgiveness, but because you deserve peace.

Jonathan Huie

Many people are truly under the impression that forgiving someone is for the benefit of the party seeking forgiveness. The truth of the matter is, like the above quote by Jonathan Huie, the power of forgiving someone lies in finding peace within yourself.

Peace and Forgiveness

When you have been hurt by someone else’s words or actions, the best thing you can do is give yourself permission to release the pain and hurt and forgive the other person. This can be really, really hard, but trust me when I say that it can be done, and for your sake, I hope that you’ll allow yourself this gift.

Practice Forgiveness Today

I’ve had a few things from my life that I’ve needed to forgive. We all do. I’ve been able to forgive those people. The most important person I’ve forgiven is myself. This is, from my experience, the most difficult of all.

What a Gift!

I have found that forgiving and letting things go is one of the most powerful and beneficial things I’ve done for myself.

To forgive is to set a prisoner free, only to discover that the prisoner was you.

Is there someone in your life that could use forgiveness? Especially you? Try it, you won’t be sorry.

Typically, women work with me because of my experience overcoming major life challenges like getting sober and surviving cancer. They don’t know what the hell happened or what they should do next. I am privileged to guide these brave women on their path of self-discovery and transformation where they can find peace, freedom and joy.

Your Life. Your Choice.

Here’s what one of my clients had to say…

“Nancy provided coaching during a challenging time in my life. She listened and shared insight to help me gain perspective. Working with Nancy was amazing! I will be forever grateful.” ~Phebe, California
