It’s that time of year again—spring, when the world seems brand new again. And the greening trees remind us that it’s time to spruce things up a bit. Here are a few things you can do today.

  • Pick just one thing to focus on—the “junk” drawer in your kitchen, a closet, or even a corner of a room.
  • Set a timer for 30 minutes. Doing so will keep you focused and efficient. OK, go!
  • Put anything you don’t need or want in a bag or box to recycle or give away.
  • If it’s difficult for you to let go of some things, ask yourself: Does someone else need this more than I do? The answer is usually yes, so go ahead and make someone else’s day!
  • When the timer chimes, you’re done.
  • Now, make a date with yourself for a 30-minute fling next week.
  • Celebrate yourself: take a walk, ride your bike, sip a cup of your favorite tea, pick some spring flowers, call a friend.
  • In just a few weeks, you’ll be amazed at how organized things are and how great you feel.

Welcome Spring! Sensual abundance. I feel very blessed to be coming back to my senses, especially since my fall just a few months ago.

So I’m counting my blessings. There are so many of them—greening trees, bulbs pushing forth from warming soil… more sun, wind and, rain… birdsong, children playing in the park. And less time in physical therapy. Talk about blessings!

I’ve been watching my step… and letting go of some things that no longer serve me well at this stage of my life. To help me prepare for new beginnings, I committed to one action each day, asking God, “How can you use me today?”  Each day, something new is being birthed.

May this Spring bring forth new beginnings for you and the people and places you love. And may your be blessed with great wealth–of gratitude, love, faith, compassion, forgiveness, and creativity.

Pass It On!
