MARCH IS A TIME OF CHANGE - Spring Clean Your Life
As we move from winter, where we go from inward hibernation to the beautiful awakening of spring; what is it you wish to plant and nurture in your life? What is it that you would like to tend to? New Year's, many people make resolutions that they hope will bring about change, but most often, the change does not last and they fall back into their old ways. Spring is another opportunity to look at what in your "garden" needs pruning, watering, trimming and care. You've heard of "Spring Cleaning." Time to Spring clean your life!" Your gardening tools are you journal, creativity, meditation, solitude, reflection, etc. I will write more about this process in another post.
TIP 1: Take out your journal and write about what in your personal garden needs your attention? Then, if you choose, create a collage with cut-out magazine images that reflect this garden. Glue your images down either in your journal or on a large piece of paper. NOTE: you might want to have your collage reflect going from Winter to Spring...going from dark to light. OR, have it reflect how you envision your garden with the plants representing the areas of your life that you are going to nurture and give attention to. Have fun and just play with the ideas I have written about in this post. Pay special attention to what in your life needs your attention and nurturing during this time of change. Examples might be, your health, your finances, your creativity, your relationships, etc. The ideas are as endless as the seeds you can plant!
Be with the process and have fun!
