Springing Forward Under the Light of the Full Moon

Last night as Doc and I went outside to bask in the light of the super moon we could hear a coyote howling in the distance. It’s mating season and all of nature is waking up from the long winter.

The first full moon in March is called the Worm Moon because the ground is soft enough for the earth worms to appear signifying the beginning of spring. Earlier in the day we noticed the flower bulbs that Doc planted last fall pushing up through the brown earth. The first signs of spring always give me hope that warmer days are ahead .

Spring is really a time of renewal. It’s time to take stock of our lives and move forward with positive intentions. For example; What do you need to purge from your life? This could be anything from getting rid of clutter to ending or distancing yourself from relationships that have become toxic . Recently Doc and I got rid of many of my dog toys at work by giving them to dogs at the shelter. All I have left is my favorite ball and my bone. And do you know what, that’s all I really need to be content.

A few years ago Doc and I made a decision that every spring we would go through a rebirth of sorts. We reevaluate our lives and let go of the things that are weighing us down. Here’s hoping that you give this some thought by challenging your beliefs and opening the door to new possibilities.

    Dear Grover, I certainly agree that spring is a time of renewal and fresh starts I personally think God programmed this bit of instinctual need in humans, smile
    It is a sense of well being for me to clean out, organize and put a breath of fresh air into our lives and homes. Thank you for the wonderful post. connie
