Welcome to the Season of Balance!
How many times do you wish there were more hours in a day because you just don’t have enough time to get it all done? I cannot count how many times. This is a sign we are trying to do too much. We need to find balance in our lives. We need to experience life one day at a time. We need to find pleasure in the little things because they are the important things. We don’t notice the feel of the floor under our feet unless it is ice cold. We need to experience life at the most primal. We need to feel, taste, hear, see, and smell life every day. As many of you know I have been sick and in the hospital. This has been the longest I have ever been sick and at times it has been scary. Not being able to breath brings life into perspective. I was able to see what was important and not so important. So take a moment wherever you are and look around. Engage your senses in your surroundings. Be a part of the world around you.
This is the time of new beginnings as we see flowers begin to bloom around us. The weather in most of the country is beginning to warm. Here in Florida it has been in the 80s for more than a week. Our spring usually only lasts a week or two before we are back into summertime weather. Since I have been confined inside I have not been able to see the subtle changes in the yard. The blueberry bushes are budding and will be a treat for the rabbits if we don’t get out there first. We also had two dove babies make an appearance along with a new black snake. I look forward to getting well enough to go outside or at least walk across the room without being out of breath. One thing I have been doing is watching the progress of the eagles at Berry College in Georgia. This is a link to the article and live feed camera http://www.berry.edu/eaglecam/.
So this spring I ask all of you to get involved in the world around you. Spend time doing something new. It could be something you have been wanting to do but you thought you didn’t have enough time to start or it could be as simple as walking every day. Just remember to start small. You wouldn’t try to run a marathon without warming up first. Be kind to yourself. You are important to the world.
Blessings of the Season,
