This the time of the year when everything around us points to new beginnings, rebirth, and renewal. It’s the time when we too have the chance to turn a new proverbial leaf and imagine endless possibilities!
What is this season going to bring? What seeds are you dreaming of sowing? How are you planning to nurture your garden? What will bloom in it?
What have you learned from past years that can help you navigate this new season? What has been lingering in your mind during the darkness of winter? Is there an idea, a hope, a dream that’s tagging on you? Don’t you think it’s time to bring it out in the open and take some action steps to manifest your dream?
Why not try? A new season, a new set of circumstances. Maybe this is the year to stop dreaming and start doing.
Start by doing something for yourself today. Celebrate you for a change; the whole you. Start where you are . . .
Move your body . . . Go outside for a walk, breathe deeply, feel the fresh air. Take in the view and notice what happens. What are you thinking about? What words or images are coming forth? Do you feel inspired?
Look at your physical space . . . is there anything that you’d like to change? Sometimes, when faced with big projects and challenging changes, the simple act of de-cluttering our physical space can get our creative juices and determination going.
Indulge your senses . . . Treat yourself to some flowers, change your computer screen to something that inspires you and makes you feel happy to look at, listen to your favorite music, sing, read a poem, take a picture, doodle, put something colorful on, light a candle, smile for no apparent reason.
Remember . . .
“Anything worth thinking about is worth singing about.” ~ Bob Dylan, The Essential Interviews
