(Now 4 years later as I reflect on this experience forgiving a sibling, I recognize the power in my life when I think about them. They have not changed their behavior towards me; they have not sought forgiveness. But I am different. I don’t get anxious when I think about them. My heart doesn’t pound and I don’t wonder what I will say if I see this person. Instead, the boundary I set to not spend much, if any, time around this person creates safety. I am able to genuinely ask, “What is there to understand about this person’s wound?” and it frees me to be me and move forward in my life with peace.)

Life is full of challenges–mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual. Being able to live from the wisdom gained from our challenges and mistakes is what enables us to become the best versions of ourselves. As a young mother of five, I was a mess of depression and perfectionism. Now as Nana to 5, my mess has become wisdom and propelled me forward with a passion for helping people show up the way they really want to!
