I think that most people have a pretty clear understanding of Spring.
Me, personally? I vividly remember watching the kids at school transform into hyper little trolls during this time and listening to the teachers talk about “spring fever”. I see the pretty pastel pinks, yellows, and greens of Easter decorations. I remember the children’s movies and elementary school worksheets that taught me about the baby animals being born, the flowers sprouting up from the ground…but there’s so much more to Spring than just that.
With the Spring Equinox coming up on Tuesday, March 20th, we’re entering a time of new beginnings.
Rebirth. Rebalance. Rebuild.
EQUINOX [ee-kwuh-noks]: The time when the sun crosses the plane of Earth’s equator, making night and day approximately equal length all over the Earth and occurring twice a year, around March 20th (Spring Equinox or Vernal Equinox) and September 22nd (Autumnal Equinox).
The balance that presents itself during the Equinox is something that we often strive to attain in our daily lives – balancing those light and dark parts within ourselves. But this year…I think we should take a step back. Let’s jump up and down on the imaginary scale. Let’s tip it way over to one side! Now let’s leap to the other side and watch it tilt again!
Do you know where I’m going with this?
With the Spring Equinox, we get a new beginning. So let’s try new things. Let’s shake away the old. Those dusty parts of ourselves that we’ve only held onto for nostalgia’s sake. The habits that we know aren’t doing us any good. The people who we loved and lost.
Spring cleaning for our mind, body, and spirit.
What a beautiful thing to have the opportunity to learn and relearn yourself. Build and rebuild your life. Rebirth. Rebalance. Rebuild.
What’s something that you’ve always wanted to try?
Where do you need to shed negativity?
How are you going to start?
When do you feel happiest? Most content?
Who are you? Truly. Really. Fully.
Take these couple of weeks leading up to the Spring Equinox to think about what you’d like to bring into your life. Focus on the positive, the good that you can create, before thinking about what you want to break away from. Positive thoughts bring positive progress.
What will be your first step to a new beginning?
Even the softest touch will tip that scale – and who needs balance anyway?
