Spring. What comes to mind when you read that word? Is it growth and new opportunity? Is it emerging from the hibernation of winter and thinking about what we may have unnecessarily gathered over the past several months? Hopefully you have heard that we are in the second week of a four part series devoted to all things related to “spring cleaning.” And while most associate this to literally cleaning your house, I am talking about your philosophical house. What negative thoughts are stuck like thick tar in the attic of our mind; to the Pandora’s Box of emotions we have methodically packed down in the basement of our soul?
These negative thoughts, emotions, and feelings, not only take up space that could otherwise be devoted to moving more freely in a positive direction, but they also take energy to maintain. In today’s episode of The Game Changer Podcast, I speak with Brenda Adelman of Freedom and Forgiveness, who has had to come to grips with this topic in a way that most of us cannot begin to imagine. You see, her father shot her mother, killing her, then went on to marry her mother’s sister. (Like I said, something most of us can’t begin to imagine.)
