There is something to being connected to the seasons. Being connected in a very organic kind of way. I spent the winter making stews, and soups and biscuits and cornbread. But now I feel the need for salads and lighter fish fare. Spring is coming!
Off with the old and on with the new. Yes the new. I have to let go of things that are not for me really. No matter how I wish them to be. Wishing doesn't make it so. These are definitely prayerful days. I am feeling very brave and very open. I do not know what tomorrow holds for me. I know what I want and I am summoning the courage to move in that direction. There are worries to contend with. I am beating them back as I said that I would, not giving in to the negative talk or thinking. This Lenten Journey is showing me that I have a creative spirit and spiritual nature. I call upon those strengths to move me further on my journey.
Letting go means to release myself from old hurts and complicated relationships. I am done with complicated matters. I want simplicity and serenity. I don't want to be ruled by the news of the day. I want peace and laughter and joy and good meals and wine!
So here I am looking out the window watching the snow and rain mix falling. I feel alone and lonely but not sad. I am feeling hopeful and prayerful that all my hearts desires' shall manifest in my big life. I am embracing this moment of solitude and aloness. Taking this time to reflect on where am I exactly? And what do I see?
I am embracing this moment of solitude and reflection. Standing fully in this moment awaiting Spring and shortly letting go of Winter. I've got more to discern as I walk this lonely road.
