April is often a magical time. Easter celebrations mark the resurrection of Christ, while at the same time, the earth is transforming with its own resurrection from cold and brown to warm and green as new life begins to sprout up everywhere. I think that’s why so many of us love Spring. We see in it our own chance to resurrect ourselves, be it our old bodies before putting on our swimsuits as we head toward the warm summer months, or our gardens that will soon be overflowing with healthy goodness, or the bulbs we planted that are finally ready to bloom. There is so much hope in transformation. That is why I love being on the pathway to self transformation. Each day that I renew my spirit with meditation, self-care, purpose, and forward movement, I think of all the possibilities ahead and feel the motivational pull to take action. Spring is just that, a time when the earth is taking action and recreating itself.
May you be filled with the same sense of possibility and hope for all the good things that are coming your way as you watch the blooming and unfolding of earth’s gifts with the delight of your inner child. I can already feel its magic. Wishing a Happy Spring to all the “baby bloomers” out there!
