Greetings!
 
It has been a beautiful weekend and spring is definitely in the air.  Spring brings the promise of new starts.  The trees are getting new leaves.  Bulbs are starting to grow.  The air is different and the days are longer.  Let's learn from the surety of nature. Be confident that even in the most difficult times when hope is fading, a new beginning can grow.  With an end....there is a beginning.  It is spring.

 Quote of the Month:

You also learn that no one can do it all alone and that it's OK to risk asking for help. You learn the only thing you must truly fear is the greatest robber baron of all: FEAR itself. You learn to step right into and through your fears because you know that whatever happens, you can handle it and that to give in to fear is to give away the right to live life on your own terms.

Spring is Here! 
 

Nature has many lessons embedded in its splendor and spring is one of them.  Spring means to come into being by growth or to take an upward course from.  It also means to come out of cover, make a shift or to move.  All of these definitions mean one thing; it is time for change.  I love spring.   

What would your hour, day or life be like if you took the actions of spring and incorporated them into your life?  What would happen if you decided right now, that you no longer believed that you were incapable of learning a new language, going back to college, trying a new career or ending a destructive relationship?  What would your hour, day or life be like if you believed you could make positive changes in your life, just as sure as the leaves were coming back, the flowers were going to bloom and there would be new grass?  What if you jumped on the renewal bandwagon and took on the upward course of spring?  Why not, the time is now and the season is here. 

I am not talking about a corny mantra like 'be the flower....be the grass.'  I am talking about a deliberate statement of change and one action to confirm it, then another...and another...and another.  Growth is gradual, but once it starts, your adrenaline will function as fertilizer and you will enjoy the change and begin to make shifts you did not think possible.  Some changes will be easy and some will be hard, but they will be worth it if it is a step to living your best life.  One thing is for sure, like spring, your spirit yearns and works for what is best for you.  Your spirit is connected to what is good.  Let it connect to spring and awaken what has been dormant for too long.

In the morning when you get up and go outside, take in the inspiration of spring.  Everything is your cheering squad.  The air on your face is the confirmation that you are here, alive and have much to contribute.  The plants pushing through the soil are telling you to persevere and not to worry.  The birds who work so hard every day are telling you to stay the course; don't stop before your blessing appears.  The many different plants and flowers are telling you there is a place for everyone and no one is without value.    All of it together, tells us there is intelligent design and you are magnificent enough to be a part of it.  I love spring.
