037 – Overcoming Bitterness, Healing Through Forgiveness And, Living From A Place of Gratitude, with Carolyn Jones
Carolyn is a Forgiveness Guide and Coach, Award-winning Author, and Speaker. At fifty-eight, she overcame the anger and bitterness she’d lived with her entire adult life when she discovered forgiveness and gratitude.
I always like to start things off on a light note. I asked Carolyn, “Would you rather be three inches taller or three inches shorter?”
Here response, “I wondered what the world looks like from a higher height. I’m rather short so I would like to be 3 inches taller.”
Then I jumped into the issue of forgiveness. Here are some of the questions I asked Carolyn.
How did you grow up?
How did that cause you feel when you were going through that?
How did you make the transition into who you are today?
You found a way to forgive your parents, how did that happen?
How can forgiveness help us to live our best lives as entrepreneurs?
Forgiveness becomes easier when we become grateful and come from a place of gratitude…why is it important to practice gratitude?
How often do you find that people put on a front?
How can we take small steps in forgiving ourselves and those who would have wounded us in the past?
Forgiveness doesn’t mean that you condone what the offender has done.
Being grateful creates more abundance.
When you decide to forgive, you make a decision to hurt and suffer less.
