Spring: Time to Wake Up

Don’t be afraid your life will end, be afraid that it will never begin.” Grace Hansen

This quote speaks of spring to me. As we see life blooming and flourishing all around us, we cannot help but be swept up in the new growth and wonder all around. The baby owls on the lake near my home, the budding lilac bushes filling the air with their sweet aroma, the bright green buds filling out the trees are just a few examples of life all around us. As the days are longer and filled with sunshine and warmth, what newness can begin to bloom in your life? As the winter chill fades away, in what ways do you want to be more alive?

Take the opportunity this spring month of May to commit to moving more, sitting (as in meditating) more, singing and dancing more. Do more of any activity that wakes you up to being more alive, to living more fully everyday.

Blessings, Deb
