Today’s forgiving journal: Doing something a little different!

For today’s forgiving journal, I’d like to do something a little different.  I have a story for you.

I was getting a ride from a dear friend, Veronique, to Santa Monica.  She was going to drop me off somewhere.  Before we got there, she mentioned that she really wanted to see the sunset at the beach (she’s from Switzerland, so this is a novelty for her.)  I really heard her, and I changed my plans so that we could do this together.

The traffic is only such like one can see in L.A., and still we made it down to the Santa Monica pier in perfect timing.  Veronique found the most awesome parking spot (a very big deal on the pier!) and we walked onto the beach as the sun was radiating glorious hues of red, orange, and gold.

I wanted to walk on the beach alongside my friend, yet I hadn’t really dressed for it in my suede boots.  The sand was super cold, and I didn’t care.  I took my shoes off and got my feet right in there.  It felt so good – so free, so energizing – to walk with this person who I loved so much, in this gorgeous scene.

I tell you this story, because it is a good analogy for where I’m going in my life.  I got here to LA and thought I may be going one place, and then a whole glorious opportunity opened up.  I’m planning on doing a spiritual psychology coaching program, as a way to explore what’s next with this forgiving project.

You guys, I am so excited and I have also had so much fear come up.  I forgive myself:

I forgive myself for judging myself for not stepping into the cold sand sooner.

I let this go into the Light so that I may walk free.

I am so grateful for my courage to walk into the unknown, hand-in-hand with love.

Sooo…..  my blog may be changing.  My videos may be changing, or growing, or well..let’s see how it goes!  There’s a blossoming happening, and I’m ready. Please keep my new steps in your heart and bless this forgiving project with your love.

Thank you so much.

  1. What a great story, Debbie! I’m so happy for you. And, I love it that you walked in the cold sand. We just took our girls and their friends for a brief stop at the Santa Monica pier on what we call our Iconic LA Day (a day trip hitting all the cool iconic places in LA).
