Today I feel like spring

The cool air touches my face and the apples of my cheeks turn that rosey color that I love so much. Today I feel like spring.

Today I feel ready for bloom. Ready to push up through the ground and burst open my petals. But I know it’s still just a bit too early–I am still a gentle bud and I must take my time. Be patient. Allow it to happen. The time is coming.

The time is always coming and going, going and coming and I will be ready when it is here. I will be ready to display my soft pallet. My graceful hues of green and yellow and rose. I will be ready to sing my sweet song to the world. The song that only I know how to sing, the song of me.

The barren land is rejuvenating itself and signs of growth are all around me.

And today I feel like spring.

Attitude of Gratitude–Day 19–“Sunergy”

Today I walked outside and felt that Spring was in the air; it is 50 degrees, blue skies and full sun. As we approach the dawn of Spring once more, I’d like to give thanks to the light.

In an earlier post I wrote about winter being the Savasana of the seasons. It is a time to go within and to be still. As I prepare to wake myself from this deep winter hibernation, I am encouraged by the extra light and the movement of my clock forward by a solid hour.

This transition reminds us that without darkness, it’s counterpart–light–cannot exist. Daylight savings time is symbolic on many accounts. The time of the year when our clocks are set back represent yin energy–we must be conservative, graceful and quiet with our movement in order to retain our store of energy through the winter. Most people (including myself) don’t know how to sit still for such a long time and crave the yang energy of the light. Thus, it is no wonder that we are all so grateful for the natural boost we receive from those extra hours of the sunlight we get when our clocks roll forward. We do not have to work so hard to sit still and save our energy, because light is in abundance.

So today I am thoroughly grateful for this beautiful day and for the energy that the extra hour of sunlight gives me. May I harness this extra energy I have today in order to be a force for good in the world.

“With Synchronicity, all the resources we need are made available to us at the precise moment that is appropriate. The people who come into our lives are the ones we need at that moment in time. Everything is perfect. We only need to recognize this to tune into the flow. Everything happens for a Reason and Every Experience is a Learning Experience.” - Alex Chua

Attitude of Gratitude–Day 17: SPRING!

ImageToday, I give thanks to the changing seasons and the insight they offer up about our natural rhythms.I am grateful to winter, nature’s way of reminding me to go within and search through the depths of my soul for clarification. And I welcome Spring, a season as much in transition as I, as the time to sow my seeds and to tend them diligently with love and patience.

 I am humbly reminded by the equinox that we, too, are the fruits of Mother Earth. It is easy to forget the cycle  when we believe we can are in control of it. But if this East Coast winter has proven anything to me, it’s that our Mother doesn’t play around!  When she says it’s time to crystallize and be still, we have no choice. We are her children, and we shall obey.

Let us be grateful to yesterday’s vernal equinox and for the reunification of Mother Demeter with her daughter Persephone! As Demeter rejoices,  she will once again allow us to thaw our aching winter bodies and resume a more active way of life!

Happy Spring! May your gardens grow!
