Day 483 - Renewal
Sunday, March 27, 2016
We spent a good part of the afternoon outside repotting plants that survived the winter and pruning damaged branches from various shrubs and trees. The lemon tree has been moved to a less windy spot - I hope it is happier there! It was a reminder of the renewal that we all have to go through from time to time.
I am undergoing a renewing process right now. My body seems to be changing again - the new exercises are toning my muscles differently, and I have to get used to some new feelings under my skin. It's all good, but I find it interesting that our bodies adapt like they do to the changes we force upon ourselves. That's definitely happening to me.
Spring is the time of rebirth, and we can apply those principles to our own lives. Whether it's spring cleaning, or a new exercise routine, or getting back into fresh produce that has been missing from the store displays for a few months, we need to refresh the Spark so that we can keep moving forward on our journey.
Enjoy this time, and figure out what will motivate you to keep going. I hope you're feeling that sense of rejuvenation that comes with longer days. We need to keep Sparking every day, and in new ways when we can!
Prune away the dead wood (negative thoughts) and provide some fertilizer to the soil, and make the most of every day!
