I had been in a cocoon of solitude for over two years. When the Coronavirus…
From my chair to yours.
“The first step towards getting somewhere is to decide that you are not going to stay where you are.”
– J. Pierpont Morgan
Depending on how you feel about the season that is approaching,
Lent means a change or simply a time of renewal.
It is a time of ritual for some, and for others, a time of inner contemplation.
This period is observed in many ways.
It last for more than a month.
Whatever way you choose to acknowledge this time and participate,
she is approaching.
For me, this is the time before tulips, forsythia and life emerges from a winter sleep in the Northern hemisphere.
Life arrives with joyous energies. Oh, and yes, bunnies are seen everywhere!
This can be a time for giving and to celebrate the approaching Spring in your way!
But before this time arrives, there enters a season that brings about some conscious life decisions for me.
My intention may not necessarily be to give up something but, to receive some new insights, perspectives on what I am keeping. It may still be a riddle.
Perhaps there is a part of me is asking for acceptance.
Something that exists in my life already that is still challenging.
Personally, I like to review how I am living my life.
I look at what I am enjoying, what I am not enjoying.
What newness would I like to weave into the tapestry of my life?
What would create more happiness? More ease?
I spend more focused time on what I consider “lightening my load?”
What would shift my load?
I like to “stir my pot.”
To see what I need to add or decrease to love my life more.
Spice it up, or, turn down the heat.
To give more to my communities and shift my view to a broader view.
Oftentimes life feels beyond my control and narrows my views.
I feel like my heart wisdom is shrinking, becoming stiff.
I don’t like being in that place so, I reflect and renew.
This focused usually time brings about a powerful, dynamic change.
I believe this planet, of which we are all a part of, calls for a larger, broader wisdom of the heart.
I question what I can do to and, I “stir my pot.”
Have a wonderful Spring!
Create your life. Be the change. Be there to welcome yourself at every turn on the road!
