Early Spring Morning by Pajunen
Happy Spring everyone! Though snow is in the forecast for NH tomorrow, I can feel new life stirring around the corner.
It was an extremely drawn out winter for me. If you read my last update, then you know, between bed bugs, breakdowns and trips to the hospital, there wasn’t much time for myself.
No time for self means depression. Depression is inevitable for me in the winter; but, this winter was especially gloomy.
That’s behind me now. Spring is here, even though it’s taking it’s time to show.
There was a new moon this past Monday. Perfect time to set forth a new attitude.
New season, new moon, new beginnings!!!
Next month, I will be starting an herbal apprentice course. I have wanted to take this course for almost 18yrs. So, it’s a big step. I am terrified, but the kind of fear that comes when you feel deep inside you will change.
I will definitely keep you posted on my progress.
Speaking of keeping you posted…I feel terrible that I haven’t blogged much.
I am so proud of myself that I finally started this blog and managed to hold onto it for a couple of years. I am always thinking of things I want to write about; but never make it to fruition.
With Spring’s renewal I renew my dedication to my blog. I vow to spend more time and effort into my blog and my writing.
I have finally made it to the point where my mental illness can no longer hold me back.
It may stop me in my tracks. It may take a day from me here and there. It may even break me at times; but, it can not stop me.
Everyday I begin again.

1) It’s the Spring Equinox!
“Springtime is the land awakening. The March winds are the morning yawn.” ~Quoted by Lewis Grizzard in Kathy Sue Loudermilk, I Love You
It has been a horrendlously long and challenging winter here in New England, and even though the weather is not as warm as the thought of Spring, it is comforting to know that the hardest part is behind. Even if it snows it will not accumulate. The days are lighter a little longer, and daydreams of summer nights are stirred. Spring has always renewed my energy. It’s the season of my birth and my rebirth.
2) It’s a New Moon~*
New moons represent new beginnings. My mom and I used to light new moon candles. We would use a pen or a pin, and scratch into the candles what our wishes and desires were for the new moon cycle.

3) It’s a Solar Ecipse
A Solar Eclipse is a natural phenomenon, and the fact that we have the kind of technology where we can witness it from across the world is absolutely incredible. Check it out,,,,amazing! 🙂
4) It’s my blogiversary!
Thinking about Spring made me remember my Spring Renewal post, and it dawned on me that I have been blogging a whole year!!!!! It maybe amateurish to celebrate; but, it’s an extraordinary accomplishment for me. It took me two years after completing my About page to actually begin my blog. I was too afraid to feel my emotions enough to write them and actually share them. I was too afraid of what people would think about me. I was too afraid to believe in myself as a person or a writer. Finally, I wrote my very first post Regroup, Reboot and Relaunch. A few posts later, I took the Blogging 101 course and was [pleasantly overwhelmed with the support and encouragement I received from all of you. I’m not sure if I would have made it a year without the constant and growing connection I make here. I am so looking forward to continuing the journey. ❤
5) Its FRIDAY!!!
Okay, so it might be reaching to say that being Friday is a magical thing; but, it all depends on your prospective. When the week has felt long and treacherous and it takes all your strength to survive another day….you keep going only because you know that the week will pass; then Friday feels pretty magical!!!
*~Happy Friday~Happy Spring~Happy New Moon~*
to all of you and may this magical day rain gentle showers of blessings over you~
Awake, thou wintry earth –
Fling off thy sadness!
Fair vernal flowers, laugh forth
Your ancient gladness!
~Thomas Blackburn, “An Easter Hymn”
Spring is here! After what seemed to be a dreary and never ending winter; spring finally arrives and brings promise and renewal.
A Promise that the seed buried beneath the snow is coming to life and it will eventually push through the soil and emerge. It will blossom and shine anew.
Under the giving snow blossoms a daring spring. ~Terri Guillemets
I shed the winter like an old coat. I leave behind dark thoughts and actions of myself and/or others. I forgive.
I cleanse myself of negativity. I am reborn with Spring. I am anew.
It’s time for spring cleaning of our homes and our bodies. A time for us to plant our seeds for new growth.
I plant my seeds and hopes for the future and I cultivate and nurture the seeds I have already planted.
I take a deep breath of the Spring air and I dance, laugh, sing and rejoice!
Spring is nature’s way of saying, “Let’s party!” ~Robin Williams
