Spring is just days away! On March 20, when the sun crosses the celestial equator (the imaginary line in the sky above the Earth’s equator from south to north) the spring equinox will occur.
That’s the moment day and night are equal length, because the Earth’s axis tilts neither away from nor towards the Sun. It is the time when our planet is perfectly balanced.
Why not mark March 20th as the day for new beginnings and balance in your life?
What have you been wanting to do, but haven’t done? How can you begin that process?
Baby steps count: A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. (Lao-tzu.) Where will your journey take you?
Or perhaps, you need a day, an hour, or a moment to simply contemplate achieving more balance in your life – to consider new ways to blend work and play or doing for others and doing for yourself.
I’m taking my commitment to balance and new beginnings more seriously than ever this year by a spending a month volunteering and living at a monastery. The experience has been amazing thus far, and quickly reminded me that the first step to beginnings and balance is believing they are possible. I first contemplated this experience almost ten years ago, and at that time it seemed like an impossible dream, but I dreamt it anyway! My life has taken me on many wonderful “impossible” journeys since then, and now seems to have come full circle as I find myself enjoying life here as the spring equinox prepares to unfold.
Each of us, truly holds our world in our hands. Don’t be afraid to dream.
What will your first step be? If this spring you do nothing more than to simply think about beginnings and balance or to consider creating the life you really want, know that you have taken the most important step, the first one. You are moving in the right direction, now keep going . . .
