rec·la·ma·tion:   the act of returning something to a former, better state. 

SPRING is almost upon us...almost.  For those of us in the Midwest, she is much like a highly anticipated visitor we've been waiting to see for months, and her arrival continues to encounter delay after delay.  Nevertheless, she's close and for me, Spring is the perfect time for welcoming renewal, rejuvenation and another "R" word, reclamation.  

We live in a very busy and sometimes chaotic and stressful world.  There are timelines, and deadlines and waiting lines.  There are demands and deliverables that cannot be negotiated.   But in the midst of all the outside pressures, remember that you have the power to reclaim the significant pieces of your beautiful soul that seem to be scattered and lost.  As the March Full Moon occurs, remember to release what no longer serves you, and meditate on bringing your heart's true desire back into focus.  RECLAIM some time, RECLAIM so rest and relaxation, RECLAIM what you love to do ~ cooking, reading, photography, painting.  RECLAIM YOUR SOUL!  

“I will not die an unlived life.

I will not live in fear

of falling or catching fire.

I choose to inhabit my days,

to allow my living to open me,

to make me less afraid,

more accessible;

to loosen my heart

until it becomes a wing, 

a torch, a promise.

I choose to risk my significance,

to live so that which came to me as seed

goes to the next as blossom,

and that which came to me as blossom,

goes on as fruit.”
