Sitting at my kitchen table this Easter morning, sipping coffee and taking in the brazen forsythia and happy daffodils lighting up my back slope, I am struck once again by nature’s lessons in optimism.
No matter what we’ve been through or what we’re still going through, spring will return. And with it, new growth, new possibilities, new color, new energy, new life.
I’ll leave you with a few selections from the second half of #MarthasMarchPhotoChallenge. I will take a break from the organized challenge in April to catch up on writing commitments and Blooming into Mindfulness marketing, but will be back with a new game in a month or two. For those of you who joined the March challenge on Facebook and elsewhere, thank you for keeping me accountable! I’ve had great fun seeing the world through your eyes. Even though I won’t be curating an April photo challenge, I’ll still be practicing mindfulness by taking photos. I hope you’ll do the same!
Chionodoxa forbesii ‘Blue Giant’
A reminder that there’s always blue sky behind the clouds. Mindfulness helps us access it no matter the weather.
