Spring is in the air! Even here in South Florida, we’re inspired by that sense of renewal and re-birth that comes with Spring equinox.
Migrating birds flutter through my yard, and despite the early dry heat this year, tiny flowers are blooming. The grass, dormant for most of the winter, is starting to grow again, and soon we’ll be wishing it would slow down.
We’ve been blessed this week to have glorious weather and that seems to be positively impacting everyone’s mood. More sun in the early evening helps, too. And I’m reminded that days like these are not unusual in this paradise I choose to call home.
And I stop for a moment to give thanks and to appreciate myself as a unique part of this masterpiece of nature, this universal energy, this divine master plan.
And I give thanks to my creative muse, recognizing that maybe it’s time I name her… I’m open to suggestions here, for sure.
And I give thanks for the simple gift of tiny springtime flowers I was given this morning. Picked from my yard by my partner, Bill, these delicate inspirations from nature were presented to me with the delight and glee often seen only in small children.
Quickly I gathered them for a snapshot . They were too delicate to survive for long once picked. And truth be told, I wanted to memorialize this moment of joy.
You see, those delicate flowers are defined as weeds by most. Yet some of us choose to see and experience their beauty, inspired by the colors, the shapes of the petals, and the pure essence of nature’s glory.
So I share this little story with you today, and encourage you to stop, if only for a moment, and let your muse out to play.
There is nothing more to living a purposeful, authentic, joy-filled life, than to nourishing your soul with love, staying open to inspiration in any form, and to simply connecting the tiny moments of pleasure together one baby step at a time.
In the spirit of wisdom, wellness and prosperity,
I send you many, many blessings–
