We have moved out of the "dark" days of Winter and daylight hours will go from equal today to begin outnumbering the nighttime hours each day as we progress through summer. While I look forward to nice long, sunshiny days I am equally happy to breathe in this day of balance. It reminds me to take a look at my life and find which areas are needing rebalanced as well.
The first day of Spring is just a reinforcement to me of seeing the flowers come up in my garden. We are moving forward. The warmer temperatures have arrived and will continue which, for me, means a lot more outdoor time. This connection and ability to get into nature for longer periods really renews my spirit. In addition, tonight is providing a Super Moon as the moon appears huge during a Full Moon. Oh how I love the night sky!
Today is also International Day of Happiness. This is to commemorate the first UN meeting on happiness and promote the global happiness movement. For me it is a reminder to find little ways to incorporate the things that make me happy into each day. I love arts and crafts, for example, so how can I add a little art or art appreciation into today? Being in nature makes me happy so how can I take time today to reconnect with the beauty of the great outdoors? Giving to others or helping bring a smile to someone's face makes me happy. How can I spread joy today?
What makes you happy? How can you add a taste of that into each day? How can you spread happiness?
I'm so grateful for this beautiful day packed with beautiful messages. I'm grateful for ample reason to make it outside today. I'm grateful Spring has officially arrived and I'm so grateful for the equinox balancing daylight and nighttime. I'm grateful to take time this evening to peer up and admire the moon. I'm grateful for the flowers coming up in my garden. I'm grateful for a day to recognize the importance of happiness and reflect on what I can do to increase the joy and balance in my life. I'm grateful for this day and every day I get to spend walking this path with the ones I love.
May we take the time today to reflect on how to bring balance and joy to our lives. May we take the steps necessary to implement a plan and walk our path with joy and gratitude. Have a beautiful day!
