A Time For Rebirth

On such a beautiful day it is hard not to think that spring is finally arriving. The cherry blossoms are in bloom, the daffodils have flowered and the sun is shining. It might only be for a day, but it is great none the less. Spring is a time for rebirth & renewal. Life begins its cycle all over again. What a perfect time to look inward and find the seeds of change.

We are very resourceful beings with access to much more than we utilize. We tend to be busy chasing after something rather than cultivating what we have already. Nurturing and caring for ourselves, body, mind & spirit, will be time well spent on ensuring your own healthy growth and development. We are never really finished in that department. There is always more to do. My father-in-laws farm always requires tending. Neglect will not yield healthy fruit & vegetables. The animals would not survive. It is a balance that needs to be maintained. It is vital for survival.

Our own self requires this mindful tending as well. Spend time in nature, exercise outdoors, read an inspiring book. There are many ways to connect with yourself and bring balance back to a hectic schedule. Find beauty in that which is around you and you will always find peace in your heart. Enjoy the sunshine...even when it rains...look inside and be the beam of light!
