Forgiveness: let go of the hot coal

“Holding on to anger is like grasping a hot coal with the intent of throwing it at someone else—you are the one who gets burned.”
—Buddha

The end of the year is a good time to cleanse the soul, to get rid of the negative, so the new year begins with plenty of room for positive blessings.

Back away from the hot coals. You’ll feel better, and no one gets hurt.
