Wednesday Wisdom- Forgiveness of Self

The first Wednesday Wisdom of 2011 is very personal.  It speaks to a battle I  struggle with – forgiveness of self.  When we forgive ourselves we leave behind  feelings of not being good enough  and we increase our capacity to love. I want more of that yumminess for myself and you in the new year.

So this week I invite you to free your heart and mind via forgiveness. I can not think of a better way to start of 2011.  Know that loving kindness is available to you every day of your life.  The world loves you, Namaste.
