Year after year people from all walks of life gather together in mind body and spirit to celebrate the New Year on January 1st. There are parties, kick-backs, meditations, vacations and dinners to commemorate the beginning of a new year, new opportunities, and new possibilities…a fresh start.
How do you get a fresh start in the dead of winter? How can you design a new life when there’s literally nothing new around you. Do you believe in astrology? Ever wonder why the astrological calendar starts with Aries and not Capricorn or Aquarius? Of course not, why would you? Why would think anything of it, its all we’ve ever known. But if you stopped to think about it, you will start to realize I might be on to something with this March 20th madness. Ask siri what’s March 20th, 2018, she’ll respond (in my siri voice) March 20th, 2018 is the First Day of Spring, Beautiful. (She calls me beautiful, she won’t stop, its so embarrassing, lol) What happens in spring? Grass starts growing, seeds are sown for summer harvest, birds fly back north and wake you in the morning for sunrise, and all the “it was cold so we was getting busy baby bumps” start poking out. Your mom reminds you to complete your spring cleaning and get rid of all those clothes you cant fit any more. Particularly, in my case, I can start going outside with my hair wet again, yasss. There’s literally growth all around you, new this and that’s at every turn. Still not convinced? That’s think back to elementary school say about kindergarten, 1st grade. Your sitting on the ABC carpet in front of the black board waiting for you teacher to pick someone to change the date. Ok so next is the days of the week, months and seasons…which season is on the chart first? YOU GUESSED IT! SPRING!!! Spring is first because its the beginning of new life for the earth to re birth and do her thing.
How do you feel knowing you’ve been lied to your whole life? Not too bad right? Good you shouldn’t it wont change anything. It’ll just make you crazy and frustrated trying to tell everyone you know and not participating in any NYE festivities every December 31st. You don’t want to be that person…save yourself…save us all and re-adjust. I accepted my new found reality by celebrating the New Calendar year and re evaluating my New calendar year goals and plans during the actual new year. Its a the ending of the first quarter and a great time to do a check-in. Its really difficult to go against nature but its even more difficult to go against the whole world, so don’t just figure out how you can finesse them both. With that being said HAPPY NEW CALENDAR YEAR!!! 2018 will be awesome! I wish you more love, money and opportunities for more love and money!!!
