"When you forgive you don't change the past, you change the future." As 2018 comes to an end, it may be time to reflect on this past year. If you are holding onto any grudges or frustrations, it is time to let them go so that you can start your New Year fresh and free of your past. Today, begin to look at all your relationships and see who you can forgive. You may even find it helpful to write down everyone you need to forgive and then release their energy with love; to write down any hard feelings you are still holding on to and meditate about the lessons that you have gained from your experiences; to write down everything that you need to forgive about YOURSELF and release it with love; to write down what you want to experience next year and what you are grateful for. Today, set your intentions to forgive, to be kind to yourself now and moving forward. Send blessings to your past, the people in your past, your present and of course, your future, which begins today. Forgiveness will set you free!
