Spring is time for new beginnings and awakenings. The flowers and trees are budding. We just took some of our houseplants outside for the warm half of the year.
Our bodies are ready to liven up after the rest and digest period of winter. Movement and cleansing are good areas to explore this season.
I have been drawn to cilantro recently. Chopping it up along with spinach and cabbage for a salad is amazingly refreshing and energizing. Cilantro is good for detoxing too. Perhaps that’s why it has come to me with such strong feelings this season. Give it a try. Or add some other light and leafy green if cilantro doesn’t float your boat. You can add it to sandwiches or salad. Use it as a garnish or make your own version of pico de gallo or a relish. Yum Yum!!
It’s your choice!
Along the thought line of “you get to choose”, how about choosing to NOT accept that guilt trip? Do you ever feel those? Either from inside your own head or from another person? You get to choose. Thank the guilt trip for reminding you to be mindful and let it go on it’s way. Don’t hang on to it. Seriously, guilt will find a home somewhere. You don’t have to hang on to it.
Life gets to be your choice. Live it as you like.
If you could make a change in your life, what would it be?
Today I am grateful that I am home, in my own home. I’m grateful that I have places to put my things – i.e. bathroom stuff, essential oils on the kitchen window seal, a desk – lots of things to be grateful for.

Thank you Goddess of Wisdom. Thank you for my age and my wisdom. I may have been just as wise when I was younger, but now it is a more conscious wisdom. It feels more conscious anyway. Deliberate. Thoughtful.
Thank you Goddess of Trust and Truth. Thank you for holding steady and giving me a point to return to when things get fuzzy.
Thank you past lives, past personalities, past experiences. I’m learning that they have indeed helped create the person writing this – I am a creation. It feels funny to write that. It’s one thing to hear someone say “you are a creation.” It’s quite another to believe that I am a creation. How humbling. Thank you!

Thank you friends! Thank you for the joy and the hugs I got last night while walking around in my community.
Thank you cats for counting on me to show up for you every morning with some food. Thank you for holding me accountable and giving me a reason to develop discipline. Thank you chores. Haha, what?? Yes, I feel grateful for my morning chores – feeding the cats and emptying the expelled RO water bucket. <<I will tell you more about that in a blog post. Ritual and routine are very comforting these days.
