Greetings of spring! Many thanks to the readers who sent wishes for good health. As the flu flies over my house, strength has returned and with it a fresh perspective on the entire subject of working. This season,we hope to kick around in these pages more ideas about image, self promotion, and most of all the “E” word–entrepreneurship.
In addition,looking forward to the spring equinox means continuing to plant idea seed in the soil of intention and clearing off the winter kill in the gardens of mind. I am reading Eckhart Tolle‘s “A New Earth” these days, taking up again a promise made to myself to read one book per month. We all recognize that some resolutions made at New Year‘s are often abandoned by March. With not an ounce of shame, I did not vow to loose weight yet again this year, but to be positive about my appearance and give the “undesirable parts” some love. How about we occasionally remind each other to keep the promises we made to ourselves early this year? Okay. There is a “second chance”: Chinese new year. 2013 is a “snake” year and the element is still water, so happy year of the water snake.
For my Lenten sacrifice I have decided to turn down my favorite candy–chocolate. Guess what I got for a Valentine? Yup. You guessed it and I put it in the freezer to show I mean business. I read some folk have decided to actually fast from Facebook! Wow. Now, that is real courage. Whatever sacrifice you decide to do or whatever new promise you decide to make this Lent, may your whole heart–with or without nuts– be in it.
