Never Perfect, Always Blessed with Lesley Forbes

Season 1, Ep. 15

Lesley, a single mom at 18 shares her insight and advice, her fortitude, and her faith in a conversation about self worth, life’s journey and what has made this beautiful woman who she is today. She is the author of the book coming out in 2021: Never Perfect but Always Blessed. 


We talk about meditation … and newsflash, it’s hard and it is about our mental talk that we hear in our heads.  Lesley offers this wonderful image of a glass of water spinning with debris and particles, like our minds spinning with worries, doubt, upset. She recommends meditation will help us to settle the swirling chaos in our brain. When the particles start to settle in the glass of water (symbolically our hearts and minds) then we are more clear.  We can see our impact, our hurt and evaluate. She will insist that we do not allow others’ negative words or energy to impact your positive energy.


How do you respond? Here is one tip, she says: “I stay in my own lane.”   


She also recommends EAT, PRAY, LOVE!


We discuss equally how it takes a village, surrounding yourself by a strong community, giving back to your community and equally, having the ability, and the conviction to stand on your own feet, solid in who you are, your impact rather than what others may impose upon you. We discuss self love, being able to forgive yourself, give yourself permission and know that you deserve the time to refuel, re-energize or simply have some “me time!”


I am profoundly thankful to Lesley for sharing her story, inspiring us with her upcoming book, and for using her voice for so much good in the world. Her encouragement to be grateful even during times of darkness or suffering and feeling alone or incapable, knowing with faith that we are on a journey to wholeness. This is your journey, and the universe is on your side.
