Fresh ways of looking at things all around us.
Spring is about new life springing forth and having a fresh, new outlook on life. What could you look at with “beginner’s eyes” to see in a new light? What could you see with new and innocent eyes about a person if you didn’t already have a predetermined idea of what that persons’ motives were or what they are like? It could be a fun game of pretend. You could people watch at the mall or the auto dealership. You could imagine what someone you never met, might like to talk about or might like to do as a hobby. You could look at an object and imagine where else it could have ended up, or what it would tell you if it could. Life is full of untold stories, unexamined lives and wonder all around us. There are stories and clues in the strangest places. Winter is a great time for reflections and going within. Spring is a great time to be thankful for new beginnings, a new start, a new season and new life. What will you create for your health and your life this season? Wishing you radiant health now and always!
