Forgiveness = Freedom

Theme: experience the freedom that comes with forgiveness 
Anecdote: the new moon 
As we move into a new pulsation with the new moon, it is important to look ahead instead of looking back. Resentments toward others and ourself can keep us weighted down and stuck in the past. Cultivating forgiveness is freeing! Take a deep breath and allow the goodness and love to expand inside of you and to penetrate into your soul as a result of forgiving and letting go. Honor that today is the first day of the rest of your life. How do you want to live it? Have the strength (Shins in) to let go of the old and to welcome the new (thighs out).
