Spring is in the air-It’s time for change!

Seasons change so the saying goes...I love expressions and  I am a believer in fanute not ‘twas ever thus!  Some of the weather this past week has reminded me of spring and for that I am grateful. Luckily, I’ve always been a spring girl! My birthday is in spring!  My friend’s mom was a Mary Kay-lady and in high school informed me my face/skin tone  is spring!  Spring is the time when many plants begin to grow and flower. I recently read the book, How to be Happy, Dammit. A Cynics Guide to Spiritual Happiness.  By Karen Salmansohn.  It is quoted in the book that some plants are only meant to last for a season or a certain time. If you try to make them live longer, you will be a bad gardener.  It goes on to say this is true of people, jobs and problems in general.   Perhaps, page 41 of the book was the most helpful to me.  In short it stated if you give a plant direct sunlight and plenty of water when it thrives best in darkness with very little water it will die.  I’ve never had a green thumb.

“I had a tight grip on hope until with wise eyes I looked at the other end of this particular “hope rope” and saw that it was attached to nothing. Then and only then was I able to let go.” -Angela Burnett
If “hope” in some area or aspect of your life is unwarranted; let go. It’s certainly not worth your time and thoughts anymore. Have a great week.

“Change is the end result of all true learning.”  ~Leo Buscaglia
I had a psych professor that made us read a lot of Leo Buscaglia’s works on love. I was hooked.  This quote reminds me of another quote, “When we know better, we do better.” We are all learning!  Have a great week!

Farewell...for awhile!

Sorry to my loyal readers. This daily blog is one resolution I can’t  keep up with...I’m physically and emotionally exhausted right now.  I always try to do what I say I’ll do; It’s the type A personality in me. But... Life Plan A (A is for awful, right?!?) didn’t quite work out the way I planned and dreamed so I am working on Life Plan B (B is for better, right?!?)  I will continue to post weekly kick off quotes and the new list each Monday, but am taking a break from blogging. I will probably drop down to monthly blogs for now. Can’t guarantee they’ll even be worth reading!  It’s what I must do to heal myself at this time. My hope is to eventually go back to daily blogging.  For those of you who like deadlines like I do. I promise to post on March 2 which is Dr. Seuss‘s birthday. Isn’t that just like a teacher?
Enjoy your month and wish me well as I wish you well!
