Start Afresh? Extravagantly forgive.

kinwomenIf you really want to start afresh – extravagantly forgive

It’s true.

We talk about fresh starts.

Moving on. Looking for opportunities.

Then with the next breath, we talk about another person who has ‘forced’ us to take this step like it is a form of punishment and they the executioner.

Starting afresh is a way of saying ‘no’ to ongoing suffering connected to past events and people. It says, ‘my limited energy is now going to be expended on a preferred future not a disappointed past’.

It might not be easy, it might not be simple but it certainly sets you free!

Regards Kelley.


About Kelley

Kelley is a speaker, author, overseas aid worker and perpetual student. She is passionate about women and gender issues, both in the local and international context, which underpins her enthusiasm for kinwomen and its contribution to women ‘living their finest life’. In 2014 Kelley completed a Masters in International and Community Development before establishing The Foxglove Project. Foxglove is a registered charity focused on supporting international development projects that are sustainable and driven by indigenous leadership. Kelley’s paid work requires her to travel extensively to evaluate and support projects supported by Australian funds. This experience and networking enables Foxglove to partner with outstanding overseas agencies delivering real opportunities for the poor and vulnerable to lead independent self-determined lives. Kelley combines these passions with a love of family and faith. Across more than 30 years of marriage, Kelley and her husband have worked through many of the challenges of building a relationship while raising three sons. Their boys have now finished high school changing the dynamics of family life and relationships. One of her great joys is sharing parenting lessons and learning from good and bad (sometimes disastrous) experiences. She uses humour and common sense to talk about the everyday challenges facing parents in today’s context.
